Here Are The 2 Teams Paul Finebaum Thinks Can Beat Alabama

The Crimson Tide are once again the favorite to win it all.

SEC Media Days are taking place this week. While the preseason poll hasn't come out yet, we really don't need to wait to see who's going to be No. 1. It's going to be Alabama.

The Crimson Tide will open the year atop the SEC and atop the preseason top 25 polls.

Who can beat Nick Saban's team this year?

ESPN college football analyst Paul Finebaum said previously that only two teams on Alabama's schedule have a real chance of taking the Tide down.

"Alabama does not have very many dangerous games. Really the opener against FSU and the closer at Auburn, a place where the Tide lost four years ago. Other than that, most of the others games are going to be laughers," he said on SportsCenter.

Alabama opens its season on Saturday, Sept. 2 against Florida State.
