Can Alabama RB T.J. Yeldon Match His Week 1 Performance vs. Western Kentucky?

Barrett SalleeSEC Football Lead WriterSeptember 17, 2016

Alabama left little doubt that it is the best team in the country after a 41-14 demolition of the Michigan Wolverines in the Cowboys Classic last weekend.

This weekend, the Crimson Tide open their home slate when the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers come to Tuscaloosa.

Even though Western Kentucky doesn't have the name value that Michigan does, it's an important game for head coach Nick Saban and Co. with Arkansas looming on the horizon next weekend. 

Can T.J. Yeldon repeat his opening-night performance? Will Amari Cooper step up at wide receiver? How vanilla will the game plan be?

Bleacher Report's Marc Kohn and SEC lead writer Barrett Sallee discusses Western Kentucky vs. Alabama in this edition of The Program.
