Remember the article from a few days ago talking about Florida's explosive offensive playmakers vs. Alabama's stingy defense?
Well, we're pretty sure who won that battle.
Alabama held Florida's "Rainey and Demps" to 8 yards on 14 carries....and Alabama didn't allow a Florida running back to rush for longer than 7 yards on any play (backup quarterback Jeff Driskel did have one run for 31 yards...the longest rush Alabama has allowed this season).
Alabama's defense dominated this game...which Bama went on to win 38-10. In total, Alabama's defense allowed just 15 yards rushing on 29 attempts. After the first play of the game (on which Florida connected for a 65 yard touchdown pass), Alabama held Florida's offense to a total of 3 points on 15 yards rushing and 142 yards passing.
