The Alabama Crimson Tide will be taking on Kent State in their season opener. Kent State will most likely not stand a hard chance against the Tide as 'Bama is ranked second in the country and looks to have another season similar to their 2009 campaign when they won the National Championship.

Running back Trent Richardson will be starting his Heisman campaign early and is expected to have a monster season running behind a stout offensive line. Richardson will need to hit the ground running immediately as he will be looked upon to be the leader of the offense as new starting quarterback A.J. McCarron get's settled in.

'Bama is picked to win by 38.5 points in their first contest of the season and will most likely rout Kent State. Richardson should have a monster day and the Alabama defense will be on full display as one of the best units in the country.
