Check out Alabama football’s six best hits of the 2015 season.
Alabama has been criticized in recent years for playing “boring” football, mostly by people who prefer football scores that look like basketball scores. But Alabama football isn’t boring. It’s physical. It’s defense-oriented. And it brings up great hits. Let’s look at some of the best from this year.
A’Shawn Robinson sacks Dak Prescott on Mississippi State’s first play from scrimmage.
This was a beautiful sack, but it was also so much more. A’Shawn Robinson’s hit set the tone for a game when Alabama’s offense was unable to sustain drives. The Bulldogs managed a first down on this possession but were forced to punt after another first-down sack.
Mississippi State got the ball again after an Alabama three-and-out and used a pass interference call against Alabama’s Cyrus Jones, a 17-yard pass, and a 19-yard run to set up first-and-goal on the 3. The Tide’s defense shone again, tackling Dak Prescott for a loss on 4th down in an epic goal line stand.
This win was truly on the defense, who recorded nine sacks and didn’t allow a touchdown.
