Southern sports fans who Bet on College football at a Sportbook will be watching this upcoming Saturday NCAA football game with the Chattanooga MOCS (University of Tennessee at Chatanooga) of the Southern Conference are (8-3, 6-2 Southern) visiting the powerful #1 team in the nation and last years NCAA Champions Alabama CRIMSON TIDE (10-0, 7-0 1st SEC West), with the game scheduled for 2:00pm ET and played at the Bryant-Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa, Alabama with weather prediction, Mild, Overcast and Slight wind of 13mph.  At the SBGGlobal online sportsbook had no early lines posted on this matchup.

The last game played by the Mocs was last Saturday as they lost a close game in Overtime to the Samford Bulldogs as the Samford QB threw for two touchdowns and their kicker Handrahan made a 43 yard field goal in overtime for the victory. Prior to that Chattanooga had a shot at a field goal of 31 yards but the kick hit the left upright and went astray.

 The Mocs had hopes of winning the Southern Conference Title but the Bulldogs win put the title up for grabs as the Mocs finished their conference schedule as the Bulldogs have one conference game left. The Samford QB Summerlin hit WR Cephus with a 92 yard TD pass that put them up 14-0!   Trailing the Bulldogs in the fourth quarter 14-0 the Mocs Dothard intercepted a Samford pass returning it for 70 yards and a TD and then with 4:50 left in regulation time the Mocs QB Huesman hit WR Shafaat with a 3 yard TD pass to tie the game. The Chattanoga Mocs won the game on the Statistic sheet at the Sportbook but lost the game on the scoreboard.

The Alabama Crimson Tide in their last game in which they beat Mississippi State they had to overcome an unusual problem with their team, and that is turnovers in that they lost two of four fumbles in the game.  Overcoming that they were able to beat the Bulldogs of Mississippi State 20-7 this last Saturday night in Starkville, Mississippi. Alabama in this game did not look like the number one team in the nation they appeared ordinary, sometimes sloppy and as an uninspired group of players. Having said that, they still found the path to get the victory and by two TD’s.

 The Alabama Coach Saban said his team always struggles in Starkville, and gave the Bulldogs credit for having a great game play and for playing very physical and they controlled the line of scrimmage.  This was the lowest scoring game for the Tide this Season.  Bama should not have a huge problem with their opponent Chattanooga this coming Saturday, but good Luck to the Mocs and the Tide.
