How to WATCH Alabama’s Big 12 opener against the Washington Huskies (Thursday, Sept. 16, 4 p.m.
ET): Watch the first half on ESPN3.
WATCH: Alabama vs. Washington game, preview, highlights.
Watch the final score.
Alabama will look to keep pace with TCU (4-1) in the Big 12 South and Nebraska (3-1), Baylor (3) and Oklahoma (2) in their conference standings.
The Huskies are coming off a 41-24 win over Kansas State and are riding a seven-game winning streak.
The Huskers are expected to have an extra week to prepare for a game with a ranked opponent.
The Huskers have won eight straight in their past 10 games, but they’ve dropped four straight in the series with the Crimson Tide, including a 34-30 defeat at home in 2017.
Alabama’s offense is expected to be a major factor in the game.
Senior quarterback Tua Tagovailoa is a sophomore, but he’s the only starter on the roster.
He’s the No. 2 overall prospect in the 2018 class and was one of Alabama’s top performers last season.
The Crimson Tide also has a talented defensive line, led by senior defensive end Dante Fowler Jr. and senior linebacker DeAndre Harris.
The defense has been dominant, allowing just 14.5 points per game in the past nine games.
A win would move Alabama into the Big Ten Championship Game, which begins at 7 p.c.
ET on Sunday.
The Crimson Tide are 9-1 this season against ranked opponents.
