Tuscaloosa, Ala. (WHNT) - Alabama defeated FAU 40-7.
Some fans may see that result as a disappointment because Nick Saban did not get his third shutout of the season.
But the rest of the team says they are pleased with how they played and how they approached this game.
One of these approaches involves inexperienced players and getting playing time. For instance, 28 different members of the Crimson Tide defense registered a statistic of some kind. They are hoping this move will help them for SEC games.
