Miami FL vs Alabama: Storylines
The bad news for the Miami Hurricanes is that D’Eriq King is slightly injured in one knee. Last year he suffered a serious knee injury, but in July 2021 he told the media that he felt ready and 100% to play in the 2021 NCAA College Football season. King closed 2020 with 11 games, 211/329 completed passes for 64.1%, 2,686 yards, 23 touchdowns and 5 Ints.
The 2020 season was perfect for the Crimson Tide with 13-0 overall and 11-0 in the SEC. They scored an average of 48.5 points per game, and the defense was the 13th best in the entire NCAA. Bryce Young as a starting quarterback is a "rookie" but he learned a lot with Mac Jones in the 2020 season.
In head-to-head statistics the advantage is overwhelming for the Alabama Crimson Tide at 14-3-0. But, those statistics are from the last century. The most recent game between the Hurricanes and Alabama was in 1993. In the 2020 season, the Hurricanes played a strong game against most teams in the ACC and in the Cheez-it Bowl they lost to Oklahoma State 37-34.
