Nick Saban offered little bulletin board material leading into his team’s trip to Death Valley this weekend.
Alabama’s head coach gushed over the play of Tigers quarterback Joe Burrow and his role in the offense’s newly balanced attack, which ranks among the best that Saban has seen on tape of any opponent on the schedule to date.
“Joe has played very, very well,” Saban said on Wednesday’s SEC Coaches Teleconference. “They run the ball effectively, got good runners, the O-line doing a good job, They’re playing with tempo at times, really good skill guys. Have a lot of explosive plays on people. Probably have as good a balance as anyone we’ve played this year.”
