  • After USC and TCU lost over the weekend, Nick Saban went on national television to campaign for the Crimson Tide's chances in the playoffs. "I think some of the teams showed vulnerability when they had big losses at the end of the season, and our team finished strong," Saban said on SportsCenter. "So hopefully we'll do everything we can to get the best teams in the playoff."
  • Former Alabama WR Jameson Williams is expected to make his NFL debut Sunday for the Lions after suffering an ACL injury in the national championship game for the Crimson Tide against Georgia in January.
