Alabama Coaches Cite Seven Tiders
Marquis Maze and Chance Warmack were named on offense while Mark Barron and Robert Lester were recognized on defense. Eddie Lacy, Cade Foster and Dee Milliner received the honor on special teams. Lester was named SEC Defensive Player of the Week while Maze received honorable mention.
Maze led Alabama with 166 all-purpose yards Saturday, including five receptions for 89 yards. He put UA up 13-3 in the second quarter with a 45-yard catch and run. He added three punt returns for 36 yards and two kickoff returns for 41 yards. He also had an 81-yard punt return for a touchdown called back by a penalty. Warmack received the top grade on the offensive line. He did not allow a pressure or sack, and did not get called for a penalty. Alabama totaled 452 yards on offense, with 175 on the ground and 277 through the air.
Lester added two more interceptions against the Bulldogs and now has seven for the season, which is tied for the NCAA lead. He also had four tackles as the UA defense held MSU to just 299 total yards. Lester's seven interceptions are tied for third all-time at Alabama in the single-season record books behind Hootie Ingram (10) and Harry Gilmer (8). Barron is one of the players Lester is tied with as he recorded seven picks in 2009. Barron also had an outstanding game Saturday, recording 11 total tackles.
The Alabama defense has been impressive at home this season, allowing just 12 first half points and 32 total points in putting together a 5-0 mark and extending the home winning streak to 19 games.
On special teams, Lacy and Milliner each had one tackle on kickoff coverage. Foster booted a 45-yard field goal and averaged 68.7 yards on seven kickoffs with one touchback. Alabama held MSU to just three total punt return yards and an average of 16.67 yards on six kickoff returns.
Through 10 games, Julio Jones and Trent Richardson lead the team with seven appearances each. Barron is next with six appearances on the coaching staff's player of the week list.
