Alabama put two 310-pound DTs in its backfield and scored a 3,000-pound touchdown

New, comment

That's a lot of beef on this touchdown run by Derrick Henry.

Alabama took a page of out of the Stanford playbook on Derrick Henry's 1-yard touchdown run to tie the National Championship game.

Only they did it with Alabama players.


That's five offensive linemen, two tight ends and defensive linemen A'Shawn Robinson and Jarran Reed as lead blockers for Henry.

In total, we're talking 625 pounds of beef. In front of a 250-pound tailback. An 875-pound backfield.

That's not fair.

Good luck stopping that for a yard.
