ESPN's FPI predicts Alabama's remaining games
Alabama may be on its way to an undefeated season. But it still has some challenging games against SEC rivals coming up.
After improving to 6-0 with a win at Texas A&M on Saturday, the Crimson Tide will host a pair of conference opponents the next two weeks — Tennessee and Arkansas. Those are both games that Alabama should win handily.
However, the Crimson Tide have perhaps their toughest game of the season after their bye week, as they’ll host No. 2 LSU on Nov. 9. The winner of that contest could win the SEC West and head to the conference championship game.
Alabama will also have a tough conference game in its regular-season finale when it will host No. 11 Auburn on Nov. 30.
Fortunately for the Crimson Tide, both of their remaining games against ranked opponents come at home, so they’ll at least have that advantage.
At the end of Week 7, here are the updated probabilities for Alabama to win its remaining games, courtesy of the ESPN Football Power Index:
- Oct. 19 vs. Tennessee (97.4 percent)
- Oct. 26 vs. Arkansas (98.8)
- Nov. 9 vs. LSU (76.5)
- Nov. 16 at Mississippi State (91.1)
- Nov. 23 vs. Western Carolina (100)
- Nov. 30 vs. Auburn (75.5)
