We’re three months away from the start of college football season. The Week 1 schedule this year is awesome.

One of the bigger matchups between Power 5 schools on that first weekend is Alabama-Louisville in Orlando. The Crimson Tide are the defending national champions.

It would have been great to see Lamar Jackson against this Crimson Tide defense, but the 2016 Heisman Trophy winner is in the NFL. That means the Cardinals will be breaking in a new QB against Alabama.

As you might imagine, the Tide are favored in this game. One Vegas sportsbook is picking them by more than three touchdowns.

Las Vegas' South Point sportsbook released its early lines for Week 1.

It has installed Alabama as a 25.5-point favorite.

Alabama and Louisville will kick off at 8 p.m. ET on Sept. 1 from Camping World Stadium in Orlando.

The game will be broadcast on ABC.
