Bama at its best riding tailback duo

By  | 

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Mississippi defensive tackle Jerrell
Powe says Alabama's offense got "exposed" as a one-dimensional

He says South Carolina forced the eighth-ranked Crimson Tide
away from relying on tailbacks Mark Ingram and Trent Richardson and
"really couldn't get anything going" after that.

The Rebels would like to execute the same strategy in Saturday
night's game.

Alabama had to resort to passing after the Gamecocks jumped out
to an early lead. Ingram was held to 41 yards on 11 carries. And
Richardson didn't even see that much action, logging six runs for
23 yards.

Tide coach Nick Saban says the priority was trying to catch up
not make sure his star backs got their carries. That might be a
bigger priority if injured receiver Julio Jones can't play.
