Crimson Tide Soccer:

Alabama women's soccer continues its conference slate at home against the Florida Gators on Sunday at 4 p.m. CT at the Alabama Soccer Complex.

The Crimson Tide's five seniors will be honored before kickoff. Admission to home games is free for all fans, and the contest will air on ESPNU.

The Tide has been outscored, 15-8, but has put up just five fewer shots than its opponents, 85-80.

Alabama fell to the SEC leader Vanderbilt, on Sept. 20, 3-2.

The Commodores scored late in the first half, but Alabama got on the board in the 59th minute when sophomore Casey Wertz scored her sixth goal of the season to tie the game.

Both teams scored in the 71st minute of the game, including senior Emma Welch's second goal of the season. Vanderbilt scored one last time to finalize the game.

After 90 minutes of hard-fought defense, the Tide fell to Arkansas on Sept. 23, 1-0.

Alabama fell to LSU 2-0 on Sept. 27, as the Tiger's struck a goal in each half. Following the Tide's efforts in Baton Rouge, senior Abbie Boswell landed second place in the league for shots and shots per game (17), after launching eight shots, four being on goal.

Today's match against Florida marks the 23rd meeting in history between the two squads, as Alabama trails the series, 1-19-2.

The most recent meeting ended in Alabama falling 3-0 at Florida, on Sept. 24, 2017.

The Crimson Tide lone victory against Florida came in 2012, when the Tide shutout the Gators 1-0 in Tuscaloosa.

Florida enters Sunday's match owning a 4-8-2 overall record. In SEC play, the Gators have yet to find a win in October, as they sport a 2-3-1 record.

The Gators lead the conference in assists (15) and place second in corners (41).

After scoring four goals in a two-match span, Gator senior Laís Araujo was named SEC Offensive Player of the Week for Sept. 24. Araujo leads Florida with five goals and two assists

DIXIELAND DELIGHT...!...

Crimson Tide Football:

After a few years away, Dixieland Delight will be back Saturday night in Bryant-Denny Stadium.

The song, taken out of rotation after the alternate lyrics became the primary, will play again during the 6 p.m. CT Saturday homecoming game with Missouri. 


Alabama AD Greg Byrne announced the decision Wednesday evening in a video featuring Terry Saban and Damien Harris.

Harris, Saban and Byrne made the plea to "keep it clean" when the country song by the band Alabama returns.

"We're going to do our part here and try this one more time," Byrne said. "So, we need you to do yours."

The Iron Bowl of 2014 was the last time it played to a full stadium in Tuscaloosa. A four-letter word beginning with F echoed through the 101,821-seat stadium directed toward Auburn.

It's been the source of much debate since then with fan groups calling for its return.

AL.com columnist Joseph Goodman published a column Wednesday morning saying it was time to bring it back. A few hours later, Byrne's video was posted to Twitter.

This issue of student attendance has been another topic of debate since a low turnout two week ago for the Louisiana-Lafayette game. This is no doubt an effort to stem that trend.
 

Missouri (3-2) vs. Alabama (6-0)...

Crimson Tide Football:

The Tigers aren’t generating enough of a pass rush. 

They don’t come up with any consistent pressure, directly contributing to the problems for a secondary that’s getting hammered.

It’s not just the massive 572-yard day Purdue’s David Blough came up with, the Georgia quarterbacks came up with a slew of big plays, and worst of all, 


South Carolina backup Michael Scarnecchia threw for 249 yards and three scores last week.

You know what Tua Tagovailoa will do.

He’ll get time to work, he’ll get time for his receivers to get free, and he’ll hit 11-of-13 passes for 239 yards and three touchdowns in the first half, because that’s what he does.

Obviously he’s been amazing, but his receivers have done their part in all of this, too.

You want the truly insane aspect of the Alabama passing game? 


The top four Crimson Tide receivers in yards are all averaging over 20 yards per catch, and that doesn’t include DeVonta Smith, who’s averaging over 18 yards per grab.

For all of the great things Alabama is doing, Nick Saban hasn’t been all that happy with a defense that’s allowing a few too many leaky points.

None of them have mattered so far, but the 31 points allowed to Arkansas last week were the most given up by a Crimson Tide defense in a regular season game since beating Ole Miss in a 48-43 firefight early in the 2016 season – 28 regular season games ago.

You want an even crazier fun stat? The 31 allowed to the Hogs were the most given up in the regular season to anyone other than Ole Miss since beating Auburn 55-44 late in 2014.

Long ramble short, the Alabama defense is about to show up.

Crimson Tide Volleyball:

Alabama volleyball made quick work of Alabama State Wednesday night at Foster Auditorium, sweeping the Hornets with set scores of 25-14, 26-24 and 25-9.

A second-half push propelled Alabama (15-5) to a double-digit win in the opening set over Alabama State (10-16) before a close affair in the second that saw the Hornets reach set point, 24-23, before the Tide scored back-to-back to edge out the two-point victory.

The third set was all Alabama, posting its largest margin of victory this season with a 25-9 win to complete the sweep.

Junior Ginger Perinar led the offense with 12 kills and a .381 hitting percentage.

Sophomore Meghan Neelon was two digs shy of a double-double, posting eight along with a team-leading 19 assists.

Sophomore Doris Carter tallied a pair of service aces along with a team-leading four blocks.

With Alabama State up 5-4 early in the first set, a 4-0 run put the Tide ahead 8-5.

The Hornets fought back to tie it at 9-9 but the lead swung back Alabama's way with a 6-1 run before the media timeout with the score 15-10.

Alabama State took its first team timeout three points later trailing 17-11 and the Tide continued to roll from there, eventually winning by double digits, 25-14.

The momentum carried over to the second set, as Alabama opened the frame with five unanswered points.

Alabama State rallied back to make it a one-point game, 6-5, but could not tie the score.

The Tide led by four at the media timeout, 15-11, and by six at the Hornets' first timeout, 21-15, before a 4-0 run from the visitors again made it a one-point game.

Alabama State eventually took a late 23-22 lead and called its second timeout after a kill from Perinar tied it at 23-23.

A kill gave the Hornets set point but an attack error tied it back at 25-25 and gave Alabama back the ball and the Tide held on to win, 26-24.

Alabama again jumped to an early 5-1 lead before Alabama State rallied to draw within one.

With the Tide up 10-7, four unanswered points stretched the lead to seven points and remained there at the media timeout, 15-8.

The lead reached double digits after a kill from Carter, 18-8, as the Hornets called their first team timeout.

Two points later leading 19-8, the Tide closed out the set with seven-straight points to win, 25-9, and complete the sweep.

This weekend, Alabama resumes conference play traveling to Gainesville, Fla., to take on No. 11 Florida (15-3, 6-0 SEC) Sunday, Oct. 14 at 12:30 p.m. CT.
