The Mercer Bears and the Alabama Crimson Tide will both be gunning for a victory on Saturday when they meet at Bryant-Denny Stadium.

ABOUT MERCER (5-5): Senior linebacker Lee Bennett has been a force all season with three games of 15 or more tackles while compiling a team-best 101 stops. Senior running back Alex Lakes rushed for two touchdowns in last Saturday’s 35-33 victory over Western Carolina to increase his career total to 32, most in school history. Redshirt freshman quarterback Kaelan Riley has passed for 1,986 yards and 13 touchdowns against seven interceptions.

 Junior strong safety Minkah Fitzpatrick (44 tackles) was named a finalist for Bronko Nagurski Trophy on Wednesday but he might be sitting out against the Bears. Fitzpatrick is nursing a nagging hamstring injury and the Crimson Tide want him as healthy as possible for the Auburn game. Sophomore quarterback Jalen Hurts is having a big season with 1,648 yards and 11 touchdowns against just one interception, while rushing for 656 yards and eight scores.

bovada-logo-top-book currently has the Crimson Tide as -48 point favorites versus the Bears, while the game’s total is sitting at TBA according to Mybookie.agblacklogo-132x42

Top-ranked Alabama takes a break from the rigors of the SEC to host FCS program Mercer on Saturday. The Crimson Tide appear headed to a berth in the College Football Playoff (they are ranked No. 1 in that ranking too) and don’t figure to have much to fear against the Bears, who restarted their football program in 2013.

Alabama traditionally plays a lower-level program in November each season and coach Nick Saban defends the practice and points to what a major deal it is for the Mercer program. “These guys get an opportunity to play a Division I school, a Power 5 conference school and it’s a great experience for them,” Saban said at a press conference. “I’m sure they’ll play their very best. It’s a great opportunity for them. I played at Kent State and when we played a bigger school, it was a great experience for me.” One of the goals for the Crimson Tide will be keeping players healthy with the annual Iron Bowl showdown with Auburn next on the slate. Interestingly, Mercer lost to Auburn 24-10 earlier this season but acquitted itself well while forcing five turnovers and recovering a school-record four fumbles.

In their last action, Alabama was a 31-24 winner on the road against Bulldogs. They failed to cover the -14-point spread as favorites, while the combined score (55) was profitable news for OVER bettors.
