Crimson Tide's College Football Playoff Road Clears Up In Your Alabama Football News Update

The Alabama Crimson Tide didn't just win a big game on Saturday when they knocked off the #1 Mississippi State Bulldogs 25-20 in Tuscaloosa. They also won a clear path to postseason glory if they can continue to take care of business.

According to Zach Barnett of NBC's College Football Talk, "in the big picture, Alabama’s situation is simple. The Tide will leap into the College Football Playoff’s top four on Tuesday night, and can win the SEC West with a defeat of Auburn two weeks from today."

The Crimson Tide now control their destinies both from a SEC Championship perspective and a College Football Playoff invitation perspective. Beating the #1 team in the nation in solid fashion on network television have afforded such a luxury to Alabama and its faithful.
