The dynamic Gators offense also features tight end Kyle Pitts (36 catches, 641 yards, 11 touchdowns) and Kadarius Toney (977 yards from scrimmage, 10 TDs).

No. 1 Alabama (10-0) has averaged 49.5 points per game, third in FBS. Their Heisman candidate quarterback, Mac Jones, has completed 76.4% of his passes for 3,321 yards and 27 touchdowns with three interceptions. Running back Najee Harris has rushed for 1,084 yards and 22 TDs, the most in FBS. Receiver Devonta Smith has 83 catches for an FBS-leading 1,327 yards and 15 TDs (second in FBS).

The Crimson Tide lead the series between the two teams 27-14 and have won the past six meetings, most recently in 2016. They have faced off in eight SEC Championship Games, splitting those matchups four apiece with Alabama winning the past two (2015, 2009).
