The Defense comes alive in second halves.

The Defense has seemingly gotten better in the second halves of games and the stats back it up. The defense has allowed just seven points per game in second halves this season, that number falls to 5.6 points per game in second halves in conference. Kevin Steele has shown an ability to adjust to his opponent and the defense has improved because of it. This weekend versus Tennessee, The Volunteers were averaging six yards per play and 4.2 yards per carry leading to 20 first-half points. The Alabama football team responded by shutting out the Volunteer’s offense holding them to 3.9 yards per play and 2.4 yards per carry.
