Alabama could play the following schedule...

Oregon
Stanford
Oklahoma St
Arkansas
Wisconsin
LSU
Oklahoma
USC
Houston
Baylor
Boise St

and they would still finish as the #1 ranked defense.


Wow! I live in Alabama and am a Bama fan but I don't believe even I could go that far. There are no 'breathers' on the schedule. Because it is tackle football (at least in the SEC :-)), injuries are a factor and some games are needed to let banged up players heal a little. For example, about half of Bama's team sat out the Ga. Southern game. This is common around the country.

Having said that, I do believe Bama would fare better against that schedule than anyone else, JMO.
