The Alabama Crimson Tide defense has been spectacular this season. That Alabama plays great defense is nothing new. The 2016 version of the Tide defense ranks among the nation's best in all of the key categories, rush defense (1st), total defense (5th), scoring defense (8th), but what's even more impressive is the Tide's ability to turn defense into points.
Alabama has scored a defensive or special teams touchdown in every game this year and has 11 on the season. 11 touchdowns is more than South Carolina or Stanford have scored all season on offense. Remember when Christian McCaffrey was a Heisman Candidate?
