Alabama vs. Kansas State live stream: where to watch the 2022 Sugar Bowl

The second game in the New Year’s Six is the 2022 Sugar Bowl as the No. 5 Alabama Crimson Tide will face off against the No. 9 Kansas State Wildcats. Alabama, which typically plays in the College Football Playoff (CFP), will look to take out its frustrations on a Kansas State team that’s riding high after winning the Big 12 Championship.

On paper, Alabama is the more talented team with future NFL starters on both sides of the ball. Plus, Nick Saban is arguably the greatest college football coach ever and has seven national titles to prove it. As the underdog, Kansas State will not be afraid of Alabama and will look to shock the world inside the Superdome.

Alabama vs Kansas State Preview and Predictions - 2022 Sugar Bowl Prediction

The Alabama Crimson Tide find themselves in unfamiliar territory despite posting a terrific 10-2 regular season record. At Alabama, it’s championship or bust, and for the Tide to not be in the title is disappointing for their standards. In fact, since the beginning of the College Football Playoff, this is only the second time that Alabama has not made the CFP. There is good news, however, as top draft prospects – quarterback Bryce Young and linebacker Will Anderson Jr. – are expected to play.

The Kansas State Wildcats are 10-3 after winning the Big 12 Championship and spoiling TCU’s undefeated season. The Wildcats are having their best season since 2012, which resulted in a conference championship. For the Wildcats to pull off the upset, they will need star running back Deuce Vaughn to help convert key third downs and extend drives to keep the Alabama offense off the field.
