One down, two to go.

Alabama’s season has always been about three games: at Texas A&M, vs LSU, and the SEC Title game.

The Texas A&M game always seemed like the mostly game Alabama could lose, and now they leave College Station with a win and a clear path to the SEC and BCS title game. Given LSU’s schedule, Alabama basically needs to not lose two games for the rest of the regular season in order to in the SEC title game.

Do you see Alabama losing two games?

It’s possible, sure, but unlikely. Expect to see Alabama sitting in this top spot for the remainder of the season.
