OPENING KICKOFF: 7 p.m. ET
KEY FACTS: Texas held Alabama to its lowest point total last season, though the Crimson Tide were still able to escape 20-19 in Austin behind No. 1 overall pick Bryce Young. Nick Saban is 28-2 against former assistants 😮, such as current Texas head coach Steve Sarkisian (Alabama’s OC from 2019-2020).
MAKING MOVES: Alabama opened as an 8-point favorite before dropping down to its current number of -7. The bigger shift, though, has actually been on the total 🤔. That’s swung by 3.5 points from 57 to 53.5.
UPSET ALERT: Texas is listed at +235 to pull off the upset and has the second-most Week 2 moneyline bets of any underdog. Only Nebraska (+115) has more going up against Colorado.
HEISMAN WATCH: Ahead of Week 1, Texas gunslinger Quinn Ewers was priced at +1200 for the Heisman, while Alabama signal-caller Jalen Milroe was +5000. Each team’s starting quarterback now has +2000 odds to win the award.
