The Alabama Crimson Tide won the SEC and made the College Football Playoff last season, but were upset by the Ohio State Buckeyes in the Sugar Bowl. Nick Saban's squad is focused on winning another national championship in 2015, but there will be several tough matchups along the way. Here are Alabama's three most important games this season:
Ole Miss upset Alabama in Oxford last season, and the Tide desperately want to get revenge in 2015. The Rebels are also expected to be a big factor in the SEC West race yet again this season, so getting an early win would do wonders for Alabama in the conference picture.
Alabama ended Mississippi State's perfect season last year, and the Bulldogs have circled this game as they one they need to win to prove they belong at the top of the SEC. Road games are always hard in college football, but Mississippi State's added motivation to knock off the Tide will make this one more difficult than normal.
Last time Alabama made the trip to Auburn, the "Kick Six" happened. Even though the Tide beat the Tigers last year in Tuscaloosa, they'll want to try and erase that memory in the best rivalry in the sport.
