The Alabama Crimson Tide have certainly played like the No. 1 college football team in the nation. Two decisive victories have them riding high, but improvements still need to be made before they can be considered perfect.
The Tide have been spectacular in their first two games.
Alabama opened with an impressive 41-14 win over Michigan. The Tide were up 31-0 before Michigan decided they needed to score.
Against Western Kentucky, Alabama strolled to a 35-0 victory. The Hilltoppers were not expected to test the No. 1 team—and they didn't.
