(Sporting Alert) — No. 1 Alabama is among the six top ten teams that will be in action in NCAAF – College Football – as Week 7 fixtures continue on Saturday, Oct. 12.
The Crimson Tide (5-0), coming off a 45-3 victory over Georgia State last weekend, will travel to the Commonwealth Stadium to take on Kentucky (1-4), who dropped the last three games, including a 35-28 defeat at South Carolina last time out.
Alabama could once again be without safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, who remains suspended, so head coach Nick Saban remains focused on the players that are available.
“I think that our concern is that we get our players to do the right things the right way all the time,” Saban said. “If players are committed and doing the right things, we won’t have those issues to be dealing with.
“But if it’s not happening that way, I think the way to get it that way is to make sure everybody knows and understands that in this world we live in, there’s consequences for every choice and decision that you make.”
Joining the Crimson Tide on the fixture is No. 2 Oregon who remains sharp on the heal of their rivals, looking to pounce on that top-rank slot with any slip ups.
The Ducks (5-0) will face No. 16 Washington (4-1) at Husky Stadium in a game that is expected to be trickier than it looks.
Elsewhere on Saturday, No. 3 Clemson play host to Boston College, No. 5 Stanford is at Utah, No. 25 Missouri go to No. 7 Georgia, No. 9 Texas A&M at Ole Miss and No. 10 LSU look to move up in the rankings with a win at home against No. 17 Florida.
Another interesting clash is expected to come in Dallas where No. 12 Oklahoma (5-0) square off with arch rivals Texas (3-2)
