Lacy And Tide Few Yards Short

Alabama had two touchdowns on the ground against the Texas A&M team ranked 31st nationally in rush defense, sixth in the league, prior to Saturday's game. Normally the Aggies surrender an average of 132 rushing yards per game. The Tide, second in the SEC averaging 209 rushing yards per game, was limited to 122 yards on 31 carries.

Texas A&M, best in the conference averaging 251 rushing yards per game, was held to 165 yards on 46 carries. Heisman Trophy candidate, freshman quarterback Johnny Manziel, was the Aggies leader with 92 yards on 18 carries. Red-shirt junior running back Eddie Lacy topped the Tide ground attack with 92 yards on 16 carries and one touchdown. He discusses the comeback from a 20-0 first quarter deficit and crucial last possession in the final minutes. Two more rushing yards in the fourth quarter may have meant victory for number one ranked Alabama. Instead the 15th ranked Aggies upset the Tide 29-24 at Bryant-Denny Stadium.
