How To Watch Alabama Football

Can Nick Saban and Alabama get to the playoff? Here’s how to watch Alabama football games this fall.

Most football programs would gladly take Alabama’s 2022 season, which included an 11–2 overall record, a dominant Sugar Bowl win over Kansas State, and two narrow losses by a combined four points. But of course, most programs aren’t Alabama, which has long been college football’s gold standard under coach Nick Saban.

The Crimson Tide and quarterback Jalen Milroe snuck into the playoff after a huge win over Georgia, and they’re peaking at just the right time. Can the Crimson Tide regain their spot as college football’s top program and potentially win the whole thing? Here’s what you need to know if you want to watch Alabama football this season.
