His career performance in the Orange Bowl, 15 tackles with 3.5 tackles for loss against MI, showed his capabilities to perform as a top-tier defender in the country.

Hurts sounded downright unimpressed by all those trappings when the sophomore quarterback was asked Monday if he's used to these kinds of games. "I never really respected college quarterbacks and their ability to be able to escape", Evans said. "In the last seven years, (we're now) the two winningest football teams in America", Fisher said.

Monday marked the first of four practices before Alabama heads to Atlanta, Ga., to take on the Seminoles in the Chick-Fil-A Kickoff Game on September 2. The Tide has made a habit of playing teams from other Power Five conferences in the first or second game each season since 2008, winning all of them by double digits, including three top-10 matchups. Hurts completed 62.8 percent of his passes previous year, and if that numbers continues to go up everything will fall into place for the Tide offense. 20 USC set the table for an undefeated run into the national title game against Clemson. Florida State is 9-1 against SEC teams under coach Jimbo Fisher, who will be facing Alabama and former boss Saban for the first time. Bama will be favoured in every regular-season game, barring injury, with the toughest tests after Saturday likely November 4 vs.

Fisher believes some of the surplus of hype comes from the fact that there's been an entire offseason to think and talk about it.

"But we're ready to play too". I'll give it to them; the story is pretty eye-catching: Legendary head coach builds empire.

Florida State and Alabama face off in the so-called "Greatest Opener of All Time" on September 2, and while that name might still be a massive understatement, the reunions that will take place in Atlanta carry an enormous amount of history.

The college football season technically kicked off last weekend, but there were only five inconsequential games. The Tide is favored by a touchdown. He also faced Saban as the head man at Colorado State in 2013, a 31-6 Tide win, though that one's even more of a mismatch.

But both teams, win or lose, will face several more marquee matchups as the season progresses. "It just matters who's going to go out there and compete the best". They've only met one other time since then in 2007 - which, coincidentally, is the last time these two programs played.

Saban has had an undefeated season, back-to-back national championships ... and a flawless 10-0 in season-opening games.

Fisher could have just as well been describing his own team in praising Alabama. Hand had a "very good" fall camp, Saban said. "Have big guys, dynamic guys and playmakers across the board". The Seminoles have closed practice off to media this week. Some of the students arrived as early as Sunday morning waiting outside the Coliseum.
