Hear What Nick Saban Said After Alabama’s Win Over Fresno State

Subscribe to Tide 102.9 on

Alabama opened up its home schedule with a 41-10 win over Fresno State and head coach Nick Saban saw some improvement.

Following the game, Saban met with the media to discuss the 2-0 start.

“The big focus for our team was to improve, pay more attention to detail, play a little bit more disciplined as a team, and I think we probably accomplished that,” Saban said. “We did improve; we played better, especially on offense in this game. Now, we still have many things that we need to continue to improve on, and I think that everyone needs to know that we are uninterested in sliding backwards. We need to move forward in terms of what we need to do to continue to improve to become a better team.”

The Crimson Tide was led by quarterback Jalen Hurts, who set a new career high with 156 rushing yards while completing 14 of 18 passes on Saturday.

“He did a great job today. He threw the ball to the right place, was accurate with the ball, he kind of took what the defense gave. I would’ve like to see us make some more explosive plays in the passing game, but the passing efficiency was a lot better. A couple of times that we did have sort of longer passes down the field called in the game, we didn’t get the kind of protection we needed and it didn’t work out. But I was actually pleased with the way Jalen handled the game and managed the game and also the way he threw the ball in the game.”

Alabama will return to the practice field on Monday to begin preparations for Colorado State. You can listen to Saban’s full postgame comments in the video at the top of the page.
