ESPN Stats and Information  

It should not come as a surprise that Alabama leads the list of national title contenders heading into the 2017 college football season. However, some of the teams that are right on their tail may come as more of a surprise.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Alabama early enrollees Tua Tagovailoa, Najee Harris and Jerry Jeudy all recorded game-highs in Saturday's spring game. Jeudy was named the game's MVP.

Saban: Tide not 'elite,' have time to improve

Nick Saban said he doesn't think Alabama is "an elite team right now," but he acknowledged that the Crimson Tide have plenty of time to improve before their season opener against Florida State.

Crimson Tide offense looks promising in spring game (2:30)

Nick Saban: "I don't think we're an elite team right now. I think we're an adequate team. But I don't mean that in a negative way. We've come out of the spring a lot of years as an adequate team. It's how you respond."

The non-offensive touchdowns continue for Alabama as Terrell Hall picks off Tua Tagovailoa and returns it 60 yards for the score.

With Tua Tagovailoa, Najee Harris and Jerry Jeudy, the future of Alabama's offense looks awfully bright. And Jalen Hurts is only a sophomore, of course.

Foster: Alabama is built on tradition (1:08)

After throwing an interception on his last series, Jalen Hurts gets his first TD pass of the game, completing a 65-yard pass to Robert Foster. That element of downfield passing was missing late last season.

This might be Tua Tagovailoa's day. After throwing a TD on his first possession, Tagovailoa let's a pass sail wide only to see it deflect off one receiver's hands and land in another. Jerry Jeudy winds up with the TD and Jalen Hurts' backup is now 4-for-5 for 110 yards and 2 TD.

Alex Scarborough ESPN Staff Writer 

In a start that won't quiet the critics, Jalen Hurts goes three-and-out in his first series and then backup Tua Tagovailoa comes in and completes a couple of pretty passes, including a fade into the end zone to TJ Simmons.
