Alex Scarborough writesInsider: What’s the key to beating Alabama? In its three losses since 2010, and a near-miss against LSU this year, it’s been an uptempo passing attack.

Greg Ostendorf writesInsider: More than 20 players from the Peach State will line up for the Tide in Saturday’s SEC title game, though the Dawgs have won some key recruiting battles between the programs.
