Alabama DL Dalvin Tomlinson Excited for First Home Game
After a 46-point victory in week one, the Alabama football team returns home for its first game inside Bryant-Denny Stadium in 2016.
The Crimson Tide will host defending C-USA champions Western Kentucky, and senior Dalvin Tomlinson is excited to kickoff his final year in Tuscaloosa.
"I feel like it's going to be a big game because it's our first home game after a national championship," Tomlinson said.
The Hilltoppers will bring a fast-paced, explosive offense to town. Quarterback Mike White through for more than 500 yards in week one, which lead the nation. The Alabama defense showed it could create a lot of pressure and make it difficult for quarterbacks last week against USC. The goal will be the same on Saturday.
"If we can affect early on, we'll have a better chance of being more successful throughout the whole game."
The defense proved that last week, and there's been plenty of praise heaped on that group after allowing just six points to Southern Cal. But Tomlinson says the team doesn't pay any attention to the media because their focused on correcting mistakes.
"As people are praising us, we've seen the bad things we've done throughout the whole game and we feel like we need to get better and better every week."
