Despite last week's win, Alabama's offensive line lacked communication and played sloppy. This week…
6 Player Honorees From Win Over Hogs
Alabama offensive guard Chance Warmack was selected as one of six players of the week by the Crimson Tide coaching staff. He was also named the SEC Offensive Lineman of the Week. And actually, Warmack did have statistics.
According to the official release, Warmack graded 91 per cent.
It's a good thing they weren't using Warmack's grade for himself.
"I'm a real strict person as far as grading myself," said the senior left guard. "I thought I did okay."
Warmack did not allow a pressure or get called for any penalties, and the line didn't allow a single sack in the game, won by Bama, 52-0. Alabama totaled 438 yards on the day with 225 of those coming on the ground.
"I'm excited," Warmack said. "I'm happy."
Warmack said, "It's a collective group as far as my teammates go and I appreciate the honor as far as getting the award. I'm pretty sure my teammates deserve more than what they are getting, but it's a collective group. The success I get is from my teammates."
Also named on offense in the Bama coaches' selections was junior tailback Eddie Lacy. On defense, junior linebacker C.J. Mosley and sophomore linebacker Adrian Hubbard were selected. Special teams honorees are junior placekicker Cade Foster and freshman coverage man Dee Hart.
Lacy scored a career-high three touchdowns against the Razorbacks and finished the day with 55 yards on 12 carries. He scored once in each of the first three quarters on runs of 6, 1 and 10 yards, respectively.
Mosley was second on the team with five total tackles (three solo). He was responsible for one forced fumble as UA came up with five total turnovers. Hubbard contributed to the victory with three tackles, including two for loss and one sack. Arkansas was limited to just 137 total yards and the Tide recorded four sacks and 10 tackles for loss. The back-to-back shutouts for the defense were the first since the 1980 season. Alabama has recorded five shutouts over the last 14 games.
On special teams, Foster had another strong day as the kickoff specialist with a career-best eight touchbacks in nine attempts. He also tied a career-high with a 51-yard field goal that gave the Crimson Tide an early 10-0 lead. Foster recovered a fumble on the only kick that was returned, which Hart forced as a member of the kickoff coverage team. At tailback, Hart added 21 rushing yards on four attempts with a long of 11.
Alabama plays a non-conference game this week, hosting Florida Atlantic at Bryant-Denny Stadium at 4 p.m. CDT. The game will be on pay-per-view.
Alabama is 3-0 and ranked first in the nation. Florida Atlantic is 1-2 and coming off a 20-56 loss to Georgia.
