The Alabama Crimson Tide will take on the Mercer Bears at 4 p.m. ET Saturday at home. Both teams are sauntering into the matchup backed by comfortable wins in their prior games. You can’t lose the matchup if you win every quarter, and that was precisely Bama’s strategy against the Miami (FL) Hurricanes last week. The Crimson Tide were the clear victors by a 44-13 margin over Miami (FL). With Bama ahead 27-3 at the half, the game was all but over already. Bama QB Bryce Young was slinging it as he passed for four TDs and 344 yards on 38 attempts. Near the top of the highlight reel was Young’s 94-yard TD bomb to WR Jameson Williams in the third quarter.
Special teams collected 14 points for Bama. K Will Reichard delivered a perfect 3-for-3 game. Meanwhile, Mercer kept a clean sheet against the Point University Skyhawks last Thursday and took the contest 69 to nothing. The contest was pretty much decided by the half, when the score had already reached 42 to nothing. Their wins lifted both teams to an identical 1-0. With both the Crimson Tide and the Bears swaggering in after impressive performances, it will be interesting to see which team steps up to teach the other some humility.

While the Crimson Tide took care of business in Atlanta during Week 1, the Bears took down Point last Thursday by an impressive margin of 69-0. With the opportunity to go up 70-0 late in the game, Mercer placekicker Caleb Dowden missed the extra point to keep the score at 69-0. The moment went viral for, well, obvious reasons. Dowden’s tweet after the game also added fuel to the hilarious fire
