One other item was released Tuesday: McClain Named Nagurski National Defensive Player of the Week. Here is the official release from UA.
TUSCALOOSA â€“ Alabama junior linebacker Rolando McClain was named the Bronko Nagurski Award National Defensive Player of the Week Tuesday afternoon, following his 12-tackle performance in the Tideâ€™s 38-20 win at Kentucky Saturday in Lexington.
McClain, the Tideâ€™s defensive leader, stepped up in the absence of the injured Dontâ€™a Hightower and led the Tide with 12 tackles (8 solo) in the win. He also added one interception, one forced fumble and one pass break-up in the win.
His forced fumble led to a 45-yard fumble return for a touchdown by Courtney Upshaw that gave the Tide a 21-6 halftime lead. He added a 21-yard interception return in the third quarter that set up Mark Ingramâ€™s second touchdown run of the game two plays later that pushed the lead to 28-6. He later tipped a pass to teammate Eryk Anders for an interception that resulted in a third quarter field goal and a 31-6 Crimson Tide lead.
The Alabama defense forced four turnovers (came into the game with four on the season) and McClain played a direct role in three of those turnovers. Alabama ranks 2nd nationally in total defense, 4th in scoring defense and 8th in rush defense.
The Kentucky game marked McClainâ€™s seventh career double-digit tackle game for the Crimson Tide and his second this season. He also had 10 tackles in the Tideâ€™s win over Florida International on Sept. 12. McClain leads team with 35 total tackles and is 2nd with 4.5 tackles for loss this season.
TUESDAY PRACTICE: Alabama practiced for two hours in full pads at the Thomas-Drew Practice Facility on Tuesday afternoon in preparation for Saturdayâ€™s SEC road game at Mississippi.
Senior linebacker Cory Reamer talked about working hard this week preparing for Mississippiâ€™s running attack.
â€œOle Miss is a great team,â€ Reamer said following Tuesdayâ€™s practice. â€œThey are a top-25 team and top tier team. They have two, three great running backs. They have a guy that can make explosive plays whenever he wants too in number 22 (Dexter McCluster). We know that. Itâ€™s something we are going to be prepared for and we are going to have to work extra hard this week on stopping the run because itâ€™s something they are very good at.â€
Alabama meets Mississippi on Saturday, Oct. 10 in a nationally televised game by CBS Sports. Kickoff is set for 2:30 p.m. (CDT) with Craig Bolerjack and Steve Beuerlein calling the action. The game will also be aired on the Crimson Tide Sports Network with Eli Gold, Phil Savage and Barry Krauss.
