The Crimson Tide (2-0), coming off a close 49-42 victory over the Texas A&M Aggies last week, will play host to Colorado State at Bryant-Denny Stadium this weekend, this game live on WatchESPN and ESPN television channel.
The top-ranked team in the nation has been busy all week at the Thomas-Drew Practice Fields going through the final touches in their preparation for the season home opener and head coach Nick Saban says his team is fully focused on getting the job done this weekend.
Saban also revealed that his Alabama team is still improving and will continue to work on the mistakes from the Texas A&M escape.
“I think focus needs to be on improving as a team,” he said. “There’s no question I don’t feel like we are where we need to be as a team.
“I think the most important part of that is going to be players having the discipline to trust and believe in doing the things the way we want them done.
“Without that improvement, we’re not going to get where we want to go. We’re not going to become the team that we could be.”
The game will see former Crimson Tide offensive coordinator Jim McElwain returning to Tuscaloosa, in his second season as the head coach for the Rams, who are 1-2 on the season and come into the game on the back of a victory over Cal Poly last week.
