The University of Alabama football team improved to 5-0, after earning a 59-31 win over Mississippi at Bryant-Denny Stadium. While it has some things to improve on in the bye week, the Crimson Tide continues to grow its freshmen on defense and jump start its rushing attack.
If one were two removed a muffed punt by Jaylen Waddle and a touchdown late in regulation, Alabama carries a 59-17 victory.
Despite some quarrelling from fans about the defense, Nick Saban’s bunch is ranked 13th nationally in points allowed (14.8 ppg) and will only get better with the big competition on the horizon. As one side of the ball puts its identity together, the offense for the Tide has been mesmerizing.
Tua Tagovailoa and this group of wide receivers headline one of the best units in college football, scoring an average of 51.8 points per matchup.
During Monday’s airing of In My Own Words, Stephen Smith of Touchdown Alabama Magazine looks at his four takeaways from Alabama’s game versus the Rebels and discusses why this year’s defense is not as horrible as what people perceive.
