What you need to know about Alabama
The Crimson Tide have one of the SEC's best running backs in Najee Harris. The senior has ran for over 2,300 yards in three seasons at Alabama. The 2019 campaign was his best overall as he recorded 209 carries for 1,224 yards and 13 rushing touchdowns. He also proved to be a lethal pass catching back last season, recording 27 receptions for 304 yards and seven scores.
Quarterback Mac Jones enters the 2020 season as the Crimson Tide's starting quarterback. After taking over for the injured Tua Tagovailoa last season, Jones completed over 66 percent of his passes for 1,626 yards, 15 touchdowns and just three interceptions.
What you need to know about Missouri
Missouri struggled down the stretch last season, winning just one of its final six games. That led to a head coaching change and the Tigers brought in Eli Drinkwitz, who led Appalachian State to a 13-win season a year ago. Drinkwitz is expected to start TCU transfer Shawn Robinson at quarterback on Saturday against the Crimson Tide.
Robinson completed 60.8 percent of his passes for 1,518 yards, 12 touchdowns and eight interceptions with the Horned Frogs in 2018. He also ran the ball 49 times for 230 yards and three scores, and his dual-threat ability will be tested early and often against a stingy Alabama defense that gave up just 18.6 points per game last season.
