"That really wasn't me, I felt uneasy about myself," Berkstresser said. "I'm not that guy that becomes nervous or anything, and I definitely felt uncomfortable. But definitely this week, I will be composed and ready to play."
Berkstresser will be taking snaps from another replacement, with Brad McNulty in for injured center Mitch Morse. Left tackle Elvis Fisher has been less than his best physically. Somehow, this offense must produce against a team allowing only a touchdown per game.
"They're pretty darn good," offensive tackle Elvis Fisher said. "We've got to be able to come out there ready to play our 'A' game."
Wide receiver T.J. Moe said the most notable aspect of the Alabama defense is its pursuit.
"It's not that every guy's dominating everybody on the field, it's just that if you make one guy miss, there's three guys waiting for you," Me said. "So, you've got to get straight up field and get your yards."
Eliminate the mistakes, too.
"Nobody's ever played a perfect game," Moe added, "but we certainly have to play a lot better than we've played so far this year."
