We got back from my son's basketball game to watch the start of the second quarter, so I didn't watch the first quarter until after the game was over. Florida had a good first drive. After that, not so much.
It was another dominant game from the Alabama defense:
- 4 sacks
- 3 interceptions, one of which was a pick-6 by Fitzpatrick
- 9 tackles for loss
- Florida gained 0 net yards rushing--gained 51 but lost 51
A large loss in the game was the injury of staring LB Shaun Dion Hamilton, who will be out apparently for the rest of season. I assume Rashaan Evans will take over his spot, so he needs to get ready. There was a bust in coverage by Evans (or possibly Foster, though I doubt it) that resulted in a Florida pass TD in second quarter that will be a teaching moment.
Next up is Washington in a revisit to the Georgia Dome on New Year's Eve day.
