Tennessee VS Alabama football One of the biggest games of the 2022 college football season featured an SEC showdown for the ages between the No. 3 Alabama Crimson Tide and the No. 6 Tennessee Volunteers.
Tennessee defeated Alabama 52-49 thanks to a game-winning 40-yard field goal by Chase McGrath, ending a 15-game losing streak.
The 52 points scored by the Vols were the highest Alabama has given up since losing to Sewanee in 1907. (54).
It was also the first time since a 1999 game between then-No. 20 Michigan State and then-No. 3 Purdue that Nick Saban’s squad allowed at least 52 points, in both his collegiate and professional head coaching careers.
A wide range of college football fans voiced their opinions on the historic game.
Outside of a few giveaways, the defence had trouble stopping Hendon Hooker and company:
Alabama was very much aware of the beat with which the Vols offense works before Saturday. It was discussed more than once consistently. However, realizing about it frequently didn’t make any difference.
The Dark red Tide attempted to impede Tennessee’s speedy offense. Flicker, and the Vols had previously ran a few plays. That speedy rhythm kept Alabama from influencing Whore, and the Vols offense rolled early. Tennessee had proactively scored three scores toward the principal quarter’s end.
Whore and the beneficiaries kept on tracking down weaknesses in inclusion, and Alabama battled to track down ways of disturbing a normally perfect pocket for Prostitute. That prompted a lot of hostile accomplishment for the Vols.
Alabama at last halted the draining and had a couple of great plays as the game advanced. There were two or three fourth-down stops and DeMarcco Hellams turned into the principal protector to block Prostitute in around 11 months. Dallas Turner likewise recuperated a mishandle for a score.
In any case, the safeguard couldn’t quit surrendering plays late, specifically to Jalin Hyatt. He cooked the Ruby Tide optional.
Then Tennessee drove down the field in the last moment, finishing with the game-dominating field objective.
Alabama falls behind quickly due to infractions and poor discipline:
Alabama was very much aware of the rhythm with which the Vols offense works before Saturday. It was discussed over and over consistently. However, realizing about it frequently didn’t make any difference.
The Ruby Tide attempted to hinder Tennessee’s speedy offense. Squint, and the Vols had previously ran a few plays. That speedy rhythm kept Alabama from influencing Whore, and the Vols offense rolled early. Tennessee had previously scored three scores toward the primary quarter’s end.
It nearly became senseless how Alabama was tracking down ways of getting punished on one first quarter drive.
To begin with, there was hanging on the opening shot return. Tennessee had recently taken a 14-7 lead and the Dark red Tide expected to answer. On the principal hostile play, another holding punishment. Before Alabama could run another play, the Red Tide had a premature move. The drive just deteriorated from that point. Blend the punishments in with a Traeshon-Holden drop, and James Burnip before long needed to dropkick out of Alabama’s end zone.
The Red Tide arrived at seven punishments for the game by Burnips’ dropkick. Over five minutes actually stayed in the main quarter. In the principal half alone, Alabama had nine punishments for 71 yards.
Those impeded an Alabama group that previously had a sufficient issue confronting a gifted Tennessee group in a threatening Neyland Arena.
To the extent that mix-ups go, none were more glaring than Robinson’s dropkick bring botch back. Not long after the turnover, the Vols took a 28-10 lead with 11:41 left in the main half.
Bryce Young’s shoulder is more than fine
Young suffered a recent injury? He didn’t appear to be a player who had recently suffered a shoulder injury.
He was back to his old tricks: prolonging plays, making opponents miss, and putting the ball into small spaces.
His third-quarter drive, which enabled Alabama to take the game’s first lead, was a masterpiece. Young was the driving force behind a 12-play, 75-yard drive made possible by his incredible throws and Houdini-like movements. Nothing short of amazing was the ball made to tight end Cameron Latu near the right sideline.
Jahmyr Gibbs continues to be a gamer
The player after Young you would like to have the ball in a crucial situation is Gibbs.
He was still using his previous tactics, occasionally freezing defenders. He demonstrated clutch play when scoring as well. By the end of the third quarter, he had scored three touchdowns on the ground.
Gibbs continued his streak of 100-plus yard rushing days, as he emerged as the top non-Young player in the Alabama offence.
