Nick Saban on Mizzou: 'This is by far the best offensive team we've played'
The Missouri Tigers have lost their last two games — vs. Georgia and at South Carolina — and star QB Drew Lock hasn’t thrown a touchdown pass in either game.
However, that doesn’t mean the Alabama Crimson Tide are overlooking the Tigers ahead of this week’s homecoming game — quite the opposite, actually.
At about the 1:30 mark of the below video, shared on YouTube by AL.com, coach Nick Saban praises both Mizzou’s offense and the Tigers’ defensive front seven:
“I think this is by far the best offensive team we’ve played to this point,” he said. “Certainly a very good front seven on defense — very difficult to run the ball against.”
The Tide will likely improve to 7-0, but Saban needs to keep his team motivated. While the Tigers might do a few good things on Saturday, don’t expect it to be too much of a challenge for the No. 1 team in the country.
