Alabama Football vs Western Carolina University
This game comes at a great time for the Crimson Tide. It will be great to get Mac Jones and probably Taulia Tagovailoa some much-needed experience leading into the Iron Bowl. There is no denying that the offense will not be the same without Tua Tagovailoa. He is a generational player and a huge loss for the Alabama offense. With that being said, Alabama is still a high-powered offense and Mac Jones will be able to get the ball into the playmaking receivers’ hands. Najee Harris and Brian Robinson have been seeing more carries these last couple of weeks and will continue to do so. The offense will put up pretty good numbers against Western Carolina and the backups will do the same. This game will never be close and will hopefully get Mac Jones and others some much-needed confidence. As long as there aren’t any more injuries, this game will do its job of getting some much-needed experience to the young guys and some much-needed rest to the starters.
Autumn Cornucopia at CHOM!
The Children’s Hands-On Museum of Tuscaloosa creates an environment where children can explore, design, and discover every time they visit. When you hear “hands-on,” they really mean it! This Saturday, CHOM is hosting activities like cotton ball painting, turner baster relay race, and a mini scarecrow decorating! Learning through play is what the exhibits are all about, and kids are encouraged to touch, feel, and play in the displays. Three floors of fun wait for families and offer newborns through 13 years old’s a space perfect for them.
Alabama Volleyball vs LSU
Cheer on the Tide as they take on their rival LSU. This Sunday at 1 pm will be their “Bacon. Set. Spike!” match and Big Al’s Kids Club Day! Admission is free to fans with a ticket from the WCU football game and bacon will be free to fans! The team is 12-13 overall and 4-10 through conference play.
