Mark Barron has always had a nose for the ball at Alabama. That knack for being in the right place at the right time helped the Crimson Tide top Penn State 27-11 on Saturday.
Now, Barron is being honored for his big day against the Nittany Lions, winning SEC Defensive Player of the Week. Barron had an interception and a fumble recovery in Alabama's 16-point win.
Barron also had a team-high seven tackles against Penn State. The interception was the 11th of his career, which ranks 11th in school history.
