The No. 1 Alabama Crimson Tide and the Utah State Aggies meet up in Week 1 at Bryant-Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. ET and the game will air on SEC Network. Alabama can expect to be victorious in their first game since losing the national championship game to conference rival Georgia earlier this year.

Alabama returns with 2021 Heisman winner Bryce Young at quarterback and, of course, head coach Nick Saban, who recently signed an extension to make him the highest-paid coach in college football (again).

Utah State, a member of the Mountain West conference, went 11-3 last season and finished the year ranked at No. 24 in the AP Poll after winning their conference championship. They’ll face a very different opponent in UConn in Week 0 before taking on the Tide.

Alabama is a 41.5-point favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook, with the point total set at 63.
