Alabama officially opened the 2016 season on Monday as game week routines begin in Tuscaloosa as the football team prepares for its season opener against USC.

Crimson Tide head coach Nick Saban held his Monday press conference to talk about the Trojans and where his team stands heading into week one.

During the press conference, Saban talks about the chance to play a team with the tradition of USC, narrows the quarterback race down to two, discusses the running back position, and even makes a joke about the depth chart.

Alabama remains a 10.5-point favorite over USC. The game will be carried on Tide 102.9 and 95.3 the Bear in Tuscaloosa and can be seen on ABC at 7PM.
