TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) Alabama has experienced receivers, a deep and talented backfield and a preseason All-Southeastern Conference tight end.
Quarterback Blake Sims and the third-ranked Crimson Tide simply haven't had to fully utilize that arsenal of playmakers in the past two games. Most of the throws have gone to wide receiver Amari Cooper, and tailbacks T.J. Yeldon and Derrick Henry haven't needed to do much against outclassed Florida Atlantic and Southern Miss.
That figures to change Saturday when the Tide (3-0) opens Southeastern Conference play against Florida (2-0, 1-0). It's a lot harder to win throwing it to the same guy over and over against an SEC defense, even one that just gave up 369 passing yards to Kentucky's Patrick Towles in a triple-overtime win.
