UA’s Derrick Henry moves into the record books

Cedric Mason- Touchdown Alabama Magazine

Alabama’s offensive line blocked for one rushing touchdown Saturday night against Arkansas, but it was one for the record books. Junior tailback Derrick Henry reached the end zone for an 11th straight game last week, an Alabama school-record. He got it done in the fourth quarter on a one-yard touchdown run with 2:44 remaining, giving Alabama a 27-7 advantage.

Former Alabama standout Terry Davis (1970-72) set the record by having 10 straight games with at least one rushing touchdown. Henry totaled 95 rushing yards and a score on 27 carries last week. He now has 10 rushing touchdowns on the season and 20 for his career at Alabama. The Crimson Tide defeated Arkansas 27-14 and improves to 5-1 on the year.
