He also had a receiving touchdown in which he put his patented spin move on display. This is the second game in a row that Lacy has gone well over the 100 yard mark. Over last two games he has rushed for more than 300 yards and 3 touchdowns.
“His ear had a real nasty cut and it was dangling from his head, bleeding badly. He grabbed his own ear and tried to yank it from his head. His teammates stopped him and the managers bandaged him. Man was that guy a tough one. He wanted to tear off his own ear so he could keep playing.” by Bull Bayer - Tennessee lineman talking about his Alabama counterpart and first All-American Bully VandeGraaf in the 1913 game.
