Bill Connelly argues that Alabama's defense is 'as good as it's been in several years'
Despite a close call with Texas in Week 2 where the Tide escaped with a 1-point win, Alabama has rolled to a No. 1 ranking.
The close win at Texas and subsequent wins at Arkansas, Louisiana-Monroe and Vanderbilt were due in large part to significant efforts from the Alabama defense.
Alabama’s defense leads the conference in rush defense, outscoring opponents at home 173-10. The defensive line is loaded with upperclassmen, a huge advantage for the Tide. In their last contest, Alabama held Arkansas to under 4 yards per rush and less than 6 yards per pass.
For analyst Bill Connelly, Alabama’s defense is “as good as it’s been in several years.”
