VIDEO: Levi Wallace Talks Defense Ahead of Vanderbilt Game
Not only did he record his first interception against Florida State, but Wallace also leads the team in passes broken up (5). His performance thus far has actually graded out higher than any other cornerback in the SEC according to Pro Football Focus.
Although he's played well individually, there has been a little concern about the defense after allowing nearly 400 yards to Colorado State. It's something the players have actually pointed out, including Wallace.
"I think we just need to focus more on being a complete defense, not just one aspect but the whole defense," Wallace said.
Alabama's passing defense currently ranks 9th in the conference, but it leads the SEC with five turnovers.
"We just want to focus every week on being the best secondary we can be. Not only in the SEC, but nationally. Just doing a good job limiting team's passing yards."
The Crimson Tide will face a talented backfield this weekend against Vanderbilt. Quarterback Kyle Shurmur has the 6th-best passer rating in the country while running back Ralph Webb is the school's all-time leading rusher.
