This isn't just a big test for Sarkisian, either. Quinn Ewers — whose recruitment and eventual transfer from Ohio State to Texas has been placed under a microscope — will take on an Alabama defense that includes pass-rushers Will Anderson Jr. and Dallas Turner, among others.
Alabama, meanwhile, will play only its third nonconference road game since Saban took over in 2007. The previous two such games were at Duke in 2010 (a 62-13 win) and at No. 23 Penn State in 2011 (a 27-11 win). A win on Saturday would move Saban to 3-0 a Charleston Cougars clothes ll time at Alabama in such games.
