Pivotal third-quarter drive propels Tide

Pivotal third-quarter drive propels Tide

Alabama won 41-23.COLLEGE STATION, Texas — Alabama’s offense had stalled and appeared out of sync following the loss of senior center Ryan Kelly to a concussion.At the same time, Texas A&M had seemingly stolen all momentum by taking advantage of several Tide miscues to pull within a single score at 28-20 four minutes into the second half.Alabama (6-1, 3-1 SEC) needed to do something to right the ship.And with a single 13-play scoring drive that lasted more than six minutes midway through the third quarter, the Tide offense found itself once again, thanks in large part to a pinball-like run from senior quarterback Jake Coker to start things off and a gutsy fourth-down call from offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin.“Hey, it worked. I’ll take it,” Coker joked after Saturday’s 41-23 victory over previously-No. 9 Texas A&M.The drive began with a first-down scramble from Coker, whose disgust for avoiding contact saw the senior bounce off multiple A&M tacklers on a 5-yard run.“At that point in the game, we really needed something, and I just tried to do what I could for the team,” said Coker, who finished with 138 yards on 19-of-25 passing while adding 11 net rushing yards on seven carries.“I don’t like sliding, I think it’s kind of crazy especially (because) when you get close or somebody’s close and you start sliding, (defenders) want to get one in on you — I don’t believe in sliding.”Neither does bruising junior tailback Derrick Henry, who followed Coker’s run up with a pair of big gains on a 10-yard run and an 18-yard reception in two of the next four plays, but a missed assignment by backup center J.C. Hassenauer resulted in a 7-yard loss for a second-and-17 situation.Two plays later, after an 11-yard run by Henry and a 4-yard completion by Coker, the Tide were backed into fourth-and-2 at A&M’s 30-yard line, within field goal range for Alabama kicker Adam Griffith.As seconds ticked away on the play clock, and Coker still making adjustments at the line at 3 seconds left before it’s a delay of game penalty, Alabama head coach Nick Saban tried to call a timeout.Only, the always-confident Kiffin stopped him, throwing up a quick stiff arm to halt the four-time national championship-winning coach in his tracks as Hassenauer snapped the ball with less than a second to spare.“The shot clock was down to 1,” Saban explained regarding his intention to call timeout there, before almost cracking a smile as he joked: “I’m glad we didn’t.”Just as the play clock hit zero, Coker pitched it to Henry 7 yards behind the line of scrimmage, and the 242-pound running back did the rest, sprinting to the 20 for an all-too-easy first down.“It’s called a flip play, you put everybody in the box and act like you’re going to run power and you flip the ball to a guy and he outruns everybody,” Saban said playfully. “It’s a good play. … It’s a risky play, if somebody comes off the edge you’ve got a tackle for a loss.”Only that never happened.What did happen was Alabama managed to put points on the scoreboard four plays later, ending a nearly 27-minute scoreless skid from the Tide offense as Griffith nailed a 32-yard field goal to make it a two-score advantage at 31-20 with 3:04 remaining in the third quarter.“We just kept going, we played it safe with the ball and made sure we just kept it going,” Coker said of the 13-play, 51-yard drive.After the third of four interceptions by the Crimson Tide secondary helped set up another Griffith field goal for a 34-20 lead early in the fourth quarter, to effectively shift the momentum back in Alabama’s favor for good.“We’d like to finish those drives, but Griff did a pretty good job making some field goals today, and I think that was big,” Saban said. “I think you have to take points when you can get them and make the multiples as difficult (as you can) for a team that can score as quickly as (Texas A&M) can.” (8) ALABAMA VS.

“I would, why not” – Chelsea player talks about joining another…

first_imgChelsea signed Tiemoué Bakayoko from AS Monaco in 2017 and in his debut season at Stamford Bridge the midfielder struggled to impress. Maurizio Sarri allowed the Frenchman to join AC Milan on a loan deal and the Serie A outfit have the option to make the deal permanent in the summer.He struggled initially at the San Siro and had to wait until the end of last October for his manager Gennaro Gattuso to hand his first start in the league. Since then, he has made 14 starts so far this term.Bakayoko appeared on RMC Sport’s program Footissime and he was asked if he would like to continue at Milan beyond this campaign.“I would, why not continue at AC Milan. I’m very, very happy in Milan. I went through quite difficult times early in the season. Today, it’s really much better, on the pitch, in everyday life, and I’m very happy with what I live,” he said.Embed from Getty ImagesIt’s not the first time he’s shown his admiration towards Milan as earlier this month, the 24-year-old expressed his desire to join the Rossoneri on a permanent deal after his loan spell.Bakayoko also detailed his struggles during his one season in the Premier League with the Blues.“I struggled to adapt to the very, very high level from Monaco to Chelsea, you’re really in another world. I had a hard time getting over that, staying regular there,” the ex-Ligue 1 player explained.“I learned that one had to be more professional in everything, in recovery, concentration. I failed there on many things.”by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameBuild a City, Trade With Your Neighbors, Play With Your FriendsForge of Empires – Free Online GameUndoRaid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadEven Non-Gamers Are Obsessed With This RPG Game (It’s Worth Installing!)Raid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadUndoDating.comWhere do attractive singles find each other in Tung Chung?Dating.comUndoPerfect-Dating.comReveal Tung Chung As The Best City to Date for Love & RomancePerfect-Dating.comUndoKeto减肥1個簡單的妙招一夜「融化」腹部贅肉(今晚試試)Keto减肥Undo熱門話題小心會長過頭…網友推爆:「真的長得超誇張!」熱門話題UndoSingles50Hong Kong: A 40+ Dating Site That Actually Works!Singles50UndoCoworking Space | Search AdsThe cost of shared office in Hong Kong might surprise youCoworking Space | Search AdsUndoInstant Voice Translator43 Languages Instant Voice Translator Flying Off Shelves in Hong KongInstant Voice TranslatorUndolast_img read more
