Stopping the run (Alabama's D vs. Florida's O)
- by Administrator 2 years ago
Alabama is 4-0 on the year, with wins over Kent State, Penn State, North Texas and Arkansas.
Through 16 quarters, Alabama has only allowed 3 rushing plays over ten yards and not one of them has made it 20 yards.
They do not give up big plays.
This weekend, they go to The Swamp to face Charlie Weis' offense, which is #9 in the country in rushing offense averaging 259 yards per game on the ground.
Florida's duo of Jeff Demps and Chris Rainey have combined for 27 rushes for over 10 yards, including 10 for 20+, 3 for 30+ and 1 for 40+.
These guys are big play machines.
It will be interesting to see which unit wins the big play battle this weekend (8PM on CBS).
