No. 1 Alabama wins 10th straight against No. 9 Tennessee
Oct 21 2016 by Marjorie Miles
Alabama's 39-point victory last week was the Tide's second largest margin of victory against Tennessee all-time, dating back to 51-0 drubbing of the Volunteers in 1906.
These were your head coach's first words after the game: "When you give up 438 yards rushing, and offensively, you have 32, you're not giving yourself an opportunity to win a game", Butch Jones said. The Tide are excellent in the trenches and will do all they can to double team Garrett, so others on the front line such as Daeshon Hall must step up. Each year we've been here, we've had a different type of guy playing the quarterback position.
That doesn't mean the job is done, of course. They'll get Middle Tennessee State in Week 8, but Missouri can not afford to keep dropping games against Power 5 teams if the Tigers want to make a bowl game. Ever hear the phrase, be careful what you ask for? He missed some reads.
Clock management: Alabama raced down the field with 1:02 left in the first half.
North Carolina 20, No. 16 Miami 13: Mitch Trubisky threw two touchdown passes, Malik Carney forced a turnover with 1:31 left to thwart Miami's last chance at a rally and North Carolina knocked off the 16th-ranked Hurricanes 20-13 on Saturday.
"Obviously his ability to run is something that gives defenses a lot of problems". "We worked on it all week in practice and we were trying to see how well we could run the ball and we live with the results".
Overall, Saban seemed pleased, and he said he was proud of his players. "But I wouldn't say they dominated us", defensive lineman Derek Barnett said after the game.
The same defense that had yielded 473 yards in a 49-30 victory over Arkansas a week earlier never allowed Tennessee (5-2, 2-2) to move the ball. It took them off the field.
"None of us really think any differently just because we had two good wins". Whatever we can learn from this game, we need to carry it into the next game and try to continue and improve. Hurts led the charge with 132 yards on the ground, but Bo Scarbrough also added 105 yards and a touchdown on five carries. But Hurts may be the biggest play-making threat under center that Nick Saban has had at his disposal during his run of success.
Fifth Third (FITB) Stock Gains Ahead of Q3 Earnings
Fifth Third Bancorp got Downgrade on 10-Oct-16 where investment firm Nomura Downgrade the stock from Neutral to Reduce. Wells Fargo & Co. reissued a "hold" rating on shares of Fifth Third Bancorp in a research note on Saturday, July 9th.
This season Hurts has completed 63.5 percent of his passes for 1,385 yards and nine touchdowns with three interceptions.
Following three-and-outs by both teams, Alabama would stretch its lead to 14-0 after safety Ronnie Harrison picked off Tennessee quarterback Joshua Dobbs and returned it 58 yards for a touchdown.
(14:42) Eddie Jackson returns a punt 79 yards for a TD. He also had a fumble on a sack that led to Tennessee's only touchdown. It's the same thing on the defense.
"We emphasize stripping the ball out, we emphasize attacking the ball". "That (passing) was supposed to be the issue, but he has done that extremely well this year for them to create the kind of balance in their offense that makes them very hard to defend".
Junior Alvin Kamara, who had more than 300 all-purpose yards in a two-overtime loss at Texas A&M last week, gained 35 against the Tide. The Aggies are ranked sixth in the nation.
The Alabama plan won't change.
Missouri went three-and-out on its first six possessions, and Lock threw for just 39 yards. "The players can expect what we are going to do on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. We have to get our health back, and we have to have some youngsters to have a sense of urgency to get better". We do what we do. We have to play these games one at a time.
The good news for Tennessee is that a rematch ishighly possible. They ran around the Vols ends like they were clothing store mannequins.
