Paul Finebaum makes his Alabama-South Carolina game prediction
One of the big games in the SEC on Saturday is No. 2 Alabama traveling to South Carolina to take on the Gamecocks.
Last time Alabama came to Columbia, the Tide were handed a big loss. That was all the way back in 2010, though, so it’s fair to say things have changed significantly since then.
On Saturday morning’s SportsCenter, SEC Network host Paul Finebaum weighed in on the game. He said he expects the Crimson Tide to pick up the win (via 247Sports):
“I think Alabama just keeps doing what it’s doing,” Finebaum said. “They’ve been somewhat off the radar screen with all the LSU talk this week. I think Alabama is a little bit angry. I know you normally talk about revenge games meaning what happened last year, but I can tell you this — Nick Saban is still angry about what happened in 2010 when he took the No.1 team in the country into Columbia and Steve Spurrier and a team full of NFL stars ended up beating them and they beat them badly.
“South Carolina fans are still talking about that and Alabama wants to finally end that conversation.”
What will actually happen in Columbia on Saturday? Can the Tide continue to roll?
