T.J. Yeldon made school history last Saturday night. Yeldon became the first Alabama freshman to rush for more than 100 yards in his debut, when he rattled off 111 yards and a score against Michigan.
And, he wasn't alone. Yeldon, Eddie Lacy, Jalston Fowler and Dee Hart combined for 232 rushing yards and two touchdowns. In fact, Yeldon doesn't even start, coming in to give Lacy a breather.
Head Coach Nick Saban says he wasn't surprised by the performance of his ground game, and he expects to see more of that type of production in the future.
"Hopefully, we will get Eddie more and more healthy, and he and T.J. can continue to develop into a really good tandem with some other guys being able to contribute as well," Saban said.
Alabama will host Western Kentucky at 2:30 p.m. on Saturday night on WTVY.
