We’re one week into the college football season and Alabama’s quarterback competition is yet to be settled.
Redshirt senior Blake Sims started for the Crimson Tide in their opener against West Virginia, completing 24 of 33 passes for 250 yards and an interception, adding 42 yards on the ground. Jacob Coker, a transfer for Florida State, did not see any playing time, though that should change this week, Nick Saban told reporters.
Saban reiterates that there’s still a competition going on at QB. Sims played well but Coker is still competing. He should play Saturday

Alabama should have little trouble getting both quarterbacks on this field this week, as the Crimson Tide host Florida Atlantic, a team that allowed nearly 800 yards of offense to Nebraska in Week 1.
The Crimson Tide and FAU will kickoff at 12 p.m. E.T. Saturday.
