Alabama defensive back Minkah Fitzpatrick guarantees continued domination ahead of the Crimson Tide’s toughest stretch of the season.
Alabama has rolled to a 5-0 record right out of the gate, but the Crimson Tide’s toughest stretch – at Arkansas, at Tennessee, vs. Texas A&M and at LSU – is still ahead. The Tide kick off the four-game gauntlet this Saturday night against the Razorbacks in Fayetteville.
It won’t be easy, and some have pointed to this being the stretch where Alabama potentially trips up, but don’t tell sophomore defensive back Minkah Fitzpatrick that. Fitzpatrick, who was named to the Freshman All-SEC Team in 2015, says the Tide are going to dominate just like America has become used to.
We're not "escaping" this stretch…we are dominating like we always do. Roll Tide.

So far this season, Alabama has beaten every opponent by at least 28 points, save for Ole Miss. The Crimson Tide dug out of an early hole to beat the Rebels, 48-43, and knocked the Hotty Toddy monkey off their back.
Heading into the game against Arkansas, Alabama is sporting a balanced offensive attack, averaging 231.6 yards rushing and 252.8 yards passing per game, and a top-10 defense. That’s hard to beat, especially when one Nick Saban is at the helm.
