Alabama is just a few short weeks away from beginning bowl practice for the 2013 BCS National Championship Game. The Tide are expected to take home the crystal football, but without these five guys stepping up their game, it won’t happen.
The Crimson Tide has been vulnerable to deep passes at times this fall, and a lot of that falls on breakdowns at the safety position.
The passing game has also struggled in big games, becoming one-dimensional without Michael Williams performing consistently from the tight end position.
Against Georgia, the Tide surrendered a number of rushing yards through the middle of the line, which is traditionally a strong point for the Alabama defense.
Alabama needs these five guys to focus intently in bowl preparation, and bring together their best performances of the year for the Tide to earn a 15th national title.
