Alabama Football is one of the most decorated programs in college football history. Nick Saban and the men that play for the Crimson Tide know how to win games. One way is to schedule an opening game that is very winnable. Saban didn't have to take long on this one. Kent State was 5-7 last year and was ranked 42nd in total defense and 99th in total offense. Junior Quarterback Spencer Keith had just over 2,200 yards with eight touchdowns and 11 interceptions.
