Tide Beats That Pumpkin Orange Team
Alabama football claimed its 13th-straight victory over Tennessee, coming out with a 35-13 win under the new super duper lights in Bryant-Denny. The Crimson Tide goes to a perfect 7-0 on the year with a 4-0 mark in Southeastern Conference play, while the low down, dirty snitches drop to 2-5 and 1-3 in SEC competition. #GetWellSoonTua
Nick Saban told Steve Shannon at church today that Tua will miss the Arkansas Game but should have a speedy recovery. The LSU game is 3 weeks away so Tua will have several weeks to get healthy and we wish him well. As I'm typing this, I hear Eli Gold down the hall and boy howdy does he talk loud on his cellphone. Anyway here's the low down on the game versus them dirty snitches. #LOL
The Alabama defense dominated the game all night, led by freshman linebacker Christian Harris who had a career-best eight tackles including one for a loss. Redshirt junior linebacker Terrell Lewis who is a beast had seven tackles, including a game-high two sacks and career-high three tackles-for-loss, while freshman linebacker Shane Lee forced a fumble for the first time in his career and compiled six tackles to go along with one sack.
Biggest play of the game....??? #ThankYouLord
Senior defensive backs Jared Mayden and Trevon Diggs came up big after Mayden grabbed an interception in the first half to go with five tackles and two pass breakups and Diggs had a 100-yard scoop-and-score in the fourth quarter to put the game out of reach.
Junior running back Najee Harris anchored the Tide offense, carrying a career-high 21 times for 105 yards and a career-best pair of rushing touchdowns, to go along with four catches for 48 yards. Junior quarterback Tua Tagovailoa was 11-of-12 for 155 yards through the air before leaving with an injury in the second quarter. Redshirt sophomore Mac Jones came in to replace Tagovailoa at quarterback and went 6-of-11 for 72 yards.
