Biggest game: Alabama at LSU, November 5
Players to always watch: UGA RB Nick Chubb vs. LSU RB Leonard Fournette is one kind of battle between potential top-10 picks. A&M DE Myles Garrett vs. Bama OT Cam Robinson is another.

Don't be surprised if ... Texas A&M explodes. In either sense. (This text is unchanged from last year.)
Sure, Bama's got a couple problems ... problems almost every other team would love to have.
The Tigers are loaded enough to make a title run. For Miles' sake, they better.
