Week 4 of the NCAA Football season is filled with some big games, but the game in Alabama won’t be one of them. The Alabama Crimson Tide are set to host the Vanderbilt Commodores and this game looks like a mismatch on paper.

Vanderbilt does come into this game with a record of 3-1 and there is an outside chance at a bowl game this season for the Commodores. The Commodores have struggled to be competitive in the SEC recently and facing Alabama is not a small task.

Alabama comes into this game with a perfect 3-0 record and they are winning games by an average of 37 points per game. The Crimson Tide are number two in the latest poll and are one of the favorites to win the title.

Vanderbilt vs. Alabama Preview (CFB Week 4)

The 3-1 start for the Vanderbilt team is encouraging, but there are some stats that can prove to be problematic. Vanderbilt is allowing 28.5 points per game and that’s just not going to get it done in the SEC.

The offense hasn’t been an issue for the Commodores, as they are scoring 42 points per game with a balanced attack. Establishing the run will be a big key for Vanderbilt in this game, but it won’t be easy against Alabama.

Don’t be surprised to see Vanderbilt attempt some trick plays in this one in an attempt at pulling off the upset.

Bryce Young won the Heisman Trophy a season ago for the Crimson Tide and he is back to his old tricks. Young has thrown nine touchdown passes through three weeks and he continues to hit on some deep balls.

Not only can Young and the offense throw the football well, but they are also averaging 237 rushing yards per game. Alabama just has so many weapons on offense that they are nearly impossible to stop.

The Crimson Tide defense is allowing just 8.7 points per game and that unit has the ability to take over a game as well. There just aren’t any weaknesses when looking at the Crimson Tide.

Vanderbilt vs. Alabama Picks

Even if the Commodores are a much more improved team this season, they are still at the bottom of the SEC. Alabama blows out even the best teams in this conference every week and this game should be no exception.

Bryce Young is going to pick apart the Vanderbilt defense and Alabama is going to make it hard for the Commodores to score. This game has blowout written all over it and it won’t be a competitive game after the first quarter.

Final Score: Alabama Crimson Tide 56 - Vanderbilt 6

EXTRA POINTS

1. Alabama is 62-18-4 all-time against Vanderbilt.

2. Crimson Tide has currently won 22 straight games in this rivalry.
