TUSCALOOSA, Ala. – The football team worked for 90 minutes in shells Thursday afternoon in the Hank Crisp Indoor Practice Facility as it put the finishing touches on the game plan for No. 1 Mississippi State Saturday afternoon inside Bryant-Denny Stadium.
Kickoff against Bulldogs is set for 2:30 p.m. (CT) on CBS. Verne Lundquist will handle the play-by-play duties with Gary Danielson as the analyst and Allie LaForce on the sidelines. The game can also be heard on the Crimson Tide Sports Network with the national broadcast on ESPN.
Junior Landon Collins was selected as a semifinalist for the Lott IMPACT Trophy Wednesday. The Lott IMPACT Trophy recognizes student-athletes with the qualities embodied by the award – integrity, maturity, performance and tenacity.
Former Alabama running back Mark Ingram eclipsed the century mark on the ground for the third consecutive game and Marcell Dareus had a three-sack performance in the 10th week of the NFL season.
As his New Orleans Saints went to overtime against the San Francisco 49ers, Ingram received a heavy workload, finishing the game with 27 carries for 120 yards. With his third straight 100-yard game since a hand injury, Ingram became the first Saints running back since 2003 (Deuce McAllister) to record three consecutive 100-yard games.
Dareus’ Buffalo Bills fell to the Kansas City Chiefs in week 10, 17-14, but Dareus helped keep the Bills in the game by accounting for half of the defense’s six sacks. The fourth-year defensive lineman stalled a Kansas City drive with a third-down sack with 6:51 to go, but the Bills were ultimately unable to overcome the Chiefs lead. Dareus ranks fourth in the NFL in sacks (10) after week 10.
