FPI: Bama heavy favorites vs. Mercer
The Crimson Tide are looking for their 73rd straight win vs. an unranked opponent, tying Florida (1990-2000) for the longest streak since the AP poll debuted in 1936. No other FBS team has an active streak longer than 23 games.
What would you pay for a good cupcake? Alabama is shelling out $600,000. That money pays for an all-but-guaranteed victory for the Tide, but the real winners are the cupcakes themselves.
