Derrick Henry ties single-season touchdown record at Alabama
It didn’t take long for Derrick Henry to make the record books Saturday.
Henry scored touchdowns on Alabama’s first two possessions against Charleston Southern, scoring from 17 yards out on its first drive and from 2 yards out on the second. The second TD gave him 21 on the season, tying him with Trent Richardson, who scored 21 in 2011.
Henry’s 21 touchdowns lead the nation this year. After outplaying LSU’s Leonard Fournette in Week 10, Henry emerged as the leading candidate for the Heisman Trophy. Saturday’s effort certainly is helping his case.
Henry carried nine times for 68 yards in the first half.
