Alabama may have Lane Kiffin, a star freshman quarterback, and some very talented wide receivers, but Alabama is still known for one thing first. Running the football. In Saturday’s 30-12 Iron Bowl victory over Auburn, Alabama really got things going on offense in the second half when the Tide really committed to hard nose running.
Tide running backs Bo Scarbrough and Joshua Jacobs demoralized Auburn defenders with some punishing runs.
Alabama’s running game in 2016 may not have the name recognition of previous years, but the stable of backs for Alabama is getting it done on the ground and then some.
