Undefeated and building upon their support as the No. 1 team in the country, the Alabama Crimson Tide travel to Columbia, Mo. on Saturday to take on the Missouri Tigers in the Tide's first trip to Faurot Field since the Tigers joined the SEC.
Looking for their first conference win as a member of the SEC, the Tigers have collected a 3-3 record, but have been unable to hang with the highly ranked South Carolina Gamecocks and Georgia Bulldogs, as well as dropping a game to the Vanderbilt Commodores.
The Crimson Tide (5-0, 2-0), led by quarterback A.J. McCarron and running back Eddie Lacy, also boast the nation's No. 1 scoring defense and will put Tigers freshman quarterback Corbin Berkstresser and the Missouri offense to the test.
Since taking over for quarterback James Franklin after the junior sprained his knee, Berkstresser has completed 50 percent of his passes and thrown for three touchdowns against just one interception.
Game time, TV channel: 3:30 p.m. ET, CBS
Point spread: Alabama is favored by 21.5 points on the road.
