Highlights include A.J. McCarron’s touchdown throw to DeAndrew White who made an amazing catch in the back of the end zone, and another superb catch for a touchdown as DeAndrew White splits Vanderbilt defenders to grab the ball and fall into the end zone for a second touchdown.
White ended the game with three catches for 58 yards and two touchdowns.
DeAndrew White’s play was a topic in Nick Saban’s postgame press conference. Saban said, “Well you know, we have been waiting for DeAndrew to have the type of game that would help him develop some confidence as a player. He’s a very explosive guy and has great speed and certainly would be a good addition to our group of receivers and complement them very well. He did a nice job tonight, but he is a guy that has played really well in practice that hasn’t had any production or opportunities in games and I think as a young player, maybe this game will be something he can build on and develop some confidence. He did a really nice job.”
