Alabama Insists There's No Overlooking Vanderbilt

Posted: Updated:

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - The quarterbacks for Alabama and Vanderbilt should be very careful.

The second-ranked Crimson Tide has had interception returns for touchdowns in each of the past two games going into Saturday's visit by the Commodores.

Vandy, meanwhile, leads the nation with 14 interceptions and has run three of them back for scores. It's helped James Franklin's first team get off to a 3-1 start.

Alabama rolls in having barely broken a sweat in its first five games and has the nation's top scoring defense. Coach Nick Saban said the Commodores are " a much more challenging opponent than people might think."

Vandy has lost 10 straight games against Top 25 teams since a win over Auburn in 2008. The Commodores have had two weeks to prepare since losing at South Carolina.
