No. 1 Alabama Arrives at Florida, Ready to Face the Gators in the Swamp

Crimson Tide looks to start off SEC play with a win, while the Gators aims to avenge last season's loss in the SEC Championship Game.

It's been a decade since Alabama took a trip down to the Swamp to take on the Florida Gators, but it is where the Crimson Tide is opening Southeastern Conference play.

The Crimson Tide Tide and Gators met in a memorable SEC Championship matchup last season in which Alabama ultimately prevailed 52-46.

There are a lot of new faces for both teams and a lot of the talent from that 2020 championship game heard their names called in the NFL draft, but it will still be an exciting matchup in Gainesville this weekend.
