I had a bad feeling about this game before it was played yesterday afternoon.
The Huskies scoring first didn't make me feel any better.
But that was Washington's only score in the game, and as usual the Tide defense provided a stalwart effort in the win, limiting the impressive Husky offense to only 197 total net yards.
Washington has one heck of a defense, so it took Alabama a while to get its stuff together. If you would have told me that Ridley caught only one pass in the game and Stewart caught zero passes, I would have been sure that the Tide lost the game.
Bo Scarbrough had a school bowl record in rushing yards with 180 net yards. He had two outstanding TD runs, one of which was for 68 yards.
The lack of offense in the passing game is major concern, however, as the Tide readies itself to take on Clemson on Monday, Jan. 9.
Clemson looked really good against Ohio State.
