Subscribe to Tide 102.9 on
Alabama running back Bo Scarbrough might not have the numbers many people expected him to have this season, but he’s part of a group that makes up the ninth best rushing attack in the country.
The junior is third on the team with 416 rushing yards and tied for second with seven rushing touchdowns. He and Damien Harris have been the primary running backs through the season, but every at the position has contributed to the team’s success.
“We want everyone to do their jobs and do it right in the running back room,” Scarbrough said. “We’re happy to see someone have success back there. And it’s kind of like a brother thing. When you see another brother doing good, you congratulate him.”
A total of seven different players have scored rushing touchdowns for Alabama this season and that explosive playmaking ability is why the Tide leads the conference in 84 long rushing plays on the season.
“You can have Josh (Jacobs), Najee (Harris), Damien (Harris), anyone of those guys can pop it at anytime. When they’re in the game, we’re at the edge of our seat hoping that they can get the job done.”
The running game will be important again on Saturday against a Mississippi State team that is third in the conference against the run. That game will kickoff at 6:00 p.m. on ESPN.
