The Alabama Crimson Tide has not lost a game this season and is clearly the most dominant team in college football.
The team has won six straight games and their smallest margin of victory was 19 points in a 33-14 win against Ole Miss on Sept. 29th. Last week the team overpowered Missouri on the road, blowing the team out 42-10 for their third win in the SEC this year.
Alabama is ranked number one in the first BCS poll and has allowed an average of 7.5 points per game. The team has looked unstoppable and faces another SEC road game on Saturday in Knoxville against the Tennessee Volunteers.

Head coach Nick Saban has kept the team grounded all year and has prevented his players from taking any opponents lightly.
"It's been a hard-working group," Saban said to the Associated Press. "They've had a really good attitude about what they want to try to do. I still think there's a lot of areas that we need to improve on."
The team will face a challenge from a high-powered Tennessee offense that has gained nearly 500 yards and 38 points per game. Quarterback Tyler Bray has been extremely efficient this season, throwing for 1,730 yards and 16 touchdowns while only getting sacked three times.
"We're going to be challenged in a way that we've never been challenged by the quality of the offensive team that we're playing this week in their capabilities in the passing game as well as the balance they have running the ball," Saban said.
The Volunteers have struggled on defense this season, giving up over 30 points over game, which could be a perfect storm for Alabama. The Crimson Tide have rushed for over 200 yards per game this season and average over 400 per contest.
"We're not very good right now," coach Derek Dooley said. "You are what your film is. We don't get off blocks the way we need to up front. We don't get enough hats to the football."
According to ESPN.com, Tennessee "has lost 14 straight to ranked teams."
The Volunteers have lost two straight, including an exciting 51-44 loss to then-No. 5 Georgia on the road in Athens.
"We've got a lot of games left," outside linebacker Jacques Smith said. "We've got a lot of ball left. We determine our destiny as a football team. I know we're going to get the job done."
The team has a fairly easy schedule the rest of the year, including home games against Troy and Kentucky.
According to ESPN.com: "Alabama's win streak in the series is its longest since a seven-game run Oct. 18, 1986-Oct. 17, 1992. The Crimson Tide, who lead the series 48-38-7, are also seeking a third consecutive win in Knoxville."
