Backs pave the way

Running backs Najee Harris, Brian Robinson, and Keilan Robinson help Alabama take the air out of the ball and limits pressure on Mac Jones in his first start. Harris, an absolute monster in the last six games, will allow the team to pound the ball against the vaunted Auburn defense.

Brian and Keilan Robinson provide great change-ups to Najee. Junior back Robinson is a punishing runner that makes defenders pay on every run. Frosh runner Robinson is speed, speed, speed.

Both of his touchdowns have been on runs of 46 yards or greater. Keilan has not played much in big games this season, but expect him to see considerable time this game.

The trio rushes for over 300 yards with Harris leading the way with 180 yards and two scores.
