College Football 2019: Where to Watch Alabama vs. South Carolina, TV Channel, Live Stream and Odds

At the beginning of the college football season much was made of Alabama's mindset. After being thrashed by Clemson at the national title game in January, the Crimson Tide was expected to be a team on a mission this season, desperately seeking a second championship in three years.

So far, those expectations have been met. Alabama has sprung out of the blocks, winning its first two games by a combined 105-13 scoreline.

Duke and New Mexico State, Alabama's opponents in the first two weeks, might not be football heavyweights but the Crimson Tide's offense looked ruthlessly efficient against both.

In Week 2, Alabama thrashed New Mexico State 62-10, with Tua Tagovailoa throwing for 227 yards and three touchdowns, adding 33 rushing yards and a score on the ground.

The Crimson Tide racked up 603 total yards in the game but, ominously for other title contenders, Nick Saban believes his team still has room for improvement.

"Do I think we can get better in games like this? I do," he was quoted as saying by the Associated Press.

"If you approach the game right and you practice the right way and you prepare and you have the right focus and you play to your standard, you can get better playing anybody."

A master motivator, Saban has an added reason to ensure his team keeps its foot firmly on the pedal when it travels to South Carolina on Saturday.

The Crimson Tide last played the Gamecocks in 2010, suffering an unexpected 35-21 defeat that still ranks as one of the worst losses of the Saban era.

While history might bode well for South Carolina, current form makes for less comfortable reading. The Gamecocks thrashed the Charleston Southern Buccaneers 72-10 last week, rebounding from a disappointing 24-20 loss to North Carolina in the opening weekend.

Ryan Hilinski completed 24 of 30 passes for 282 yards and two touchdowns on his debut, but the freshman quarterback will face a whole different challenge in just the second game of his college football career.

Here's all you need to know ahead of Saturday.
