When Alabama LB Mack Wilson delivered this devastating hit on Texas A&M WR Speedy Noil, many fans posted on social media wondering why it wasn’t targeting.

On Monday, Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban explained why Wilson wasn’t penalized.

“It was a great hit,” Saban told media members, per AL.com. “I know some people made something about the fact that it was targeting. But it was not an unprotected player. The guy is running with the ball.”
