Alabama may have slipped to 5th in the AP poll with the loss to 21st Texas A&M last Saturday, but that doesn’t mean Tim Tebow is jumping off the Crimson Tide train.
In fact, he’s even more on board than before. Tebow appeared on ESPN First take Friday and said he has no doubts Alabama will bounce back from the loss and still be a factor late in the season.

“I don’t think it really changes that much for college football,” Tebow said. “I really don’t. I think it changes a lot for A&M. I still think of Alabama, other than these guys. [Georgia], I think Alabama is still the best team if not the second best college football team behind Georgia. “
Until the loss to A&M, Alabama was largely untested outside of Florida’s 31-29 breakout at No.20, but the loss reinforced the importance of finishing the rest of the season undefeated. The first casualty will be the state of Mississippi, which hosts the Crimson Tide today at 7:00 am on ESPN. Head coach Mike Leach and the Bulldogs are a big 17.5-point underdog, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
If Tebow’s words mean anything, bet it’s over because he believes head coach Nick Saban will have his squad ready to dominate.

“I believe you woke up a sleeping giant. I think you’re going to have a team ticked,” Tebow said. “To have them where they’re ranked is ridiculous. Let’s be honest, Alabama is still probably the best team in college football.”
