Intensity rises as Gators come to UA | The Crimson White

"I just look at it like there is a lot of my boys there," Richardson said. "I’m from Florida and there are a lot of boys I played with there. I wish the best of luck to them, but we got to play on Saturday. They are my defender and I’ve got to go hard on them."

"Marcell did practice today, and did fine. He didn’t have any issues," Saban said. "He probably wasn’t 100 percent, but I think made enough progress to think that he’ll be better tomorrow and have a pretty good chance to play in the game."

Dareus was asked if he had any injuries during the Texas game other than those previously known.

"I had rolled my right ankle during the game and had a deep thigh bruise in my right thigh," Dareus said. "I had a hyper extended left knee and...I hyper extended  my elbow a little bit."

Tide defense on 38-game streak | TideSports.com

For 38 consecutive games, University of Alabama opponents have failed to post a 100-yard rusher, and as the streak continues the list of talented rushers grows more and more impressive. The Crimson Tide will hope to add Florida's Jeff Demps to the pile, so to speak, when No. 1 Alabama hosts the seventh-ranked Gators at 7 p.m. Saturday on CBS.

"They have really, really good players, is what we see," UF coach Urban Meyer said of Alabama's run defense. "Obviously well-coached, but, I mean, like, really good players who are fundamentally sound and play hard."

"We’ll play with the same mentality that we always play with, that we’re going to go get the football," said Jenkins, whose seven passes defended ties him for the SEC lead along with Brown. "Nobody has to do anything extra. We just have to play our game, play sound and play together."

The Heavy Package has been a hefty success so far. The Gators used it to effectively stuff Poole and the Vols’ power game, limiting UT to a mere 29 yards rushing.

Alabama is constantly in the opposition's cross-hairs and with Arkansas last week, Florida this week and South Carolina next week, this is truly a gauntlet that the Crimson Tide must go through. They passed their first test on the road last week and if this game were taking place in Gainesville, the Gators might have pulled off an upset. In Tuscaloosa though, the safe play is to go with the hometown team. Until they actually lose, it is tough to go against the Tide.

"We're starting to find ourselves as an offense, and we're just going to keep building off that," Brantley said.

The three biggest building blocks for the future — and especially Saturday's game at top-ranked Alabama — are receivers Andre Debose and Carl Moore and all-purpose back Trey Burton. All three played key roles against the Wildcats and helped the offense expand beyond a steady dose of Demps left, right and up the middle.

Students speculate on how long Tide’s football winning streak can last | The Crimson White

"After being spoiled my freshman year with an undefeated season and a national championship, I was upset as I watched the game on Saturday and thought that we might lose our first game," said Morgan Butler, a sophomore majoring in business. "I was so proud that my team pulled through, as always."
