The No. 1 Alabama Crimson Tide can’t afford to slip up on Friday when they take on the fourth-seeded Cincinnati Bearcats in the 2021 Cotton Bowl in Arlington, Texas. Alabama (12-1) played lots of close games this season and lost to Texas A&M in October, but it is in line for its seventh national title under coach Nick Saban. First it needs to get past Cincinnati (13-0), which has beaten all comers and will be hungry to prove it belongs among the nation’s elite. It is the first Group of Five program to reach the College Football Playoff, while the Tide are making their seventh CFP appearance in eight years.
Kickoff is set for 3:30 p.m. ET at AT&T Stadium. Caesars Sportsbook lists the Crimson Tide as the 13.5-point favorite in its latest Cincinnati vs. Alabama Cotton Bowl odds, and the over-under for total points is 57.5.
