CTSN’s Chris Stewart Recaps Alabama’s 49-10 Dismantling of Tennessee [Audio]
The Alabama Crimson Tide passed another road block on their journey to a national championship with a 49-10 throttling of Tennessee.
Crimson Tide Sports Network sideline reporter Chris Stewart stepped Inside the Locker Room to share his thoughts on the Crimson Tide’s 10th straight win over the Volunteers and this weekend’s pivotal matchup with Texas A&M.
Among many bright spots for the Crimson Tide was the play of running back Bo Scarbrough. The sophomore from Tuscaloosa rushed for 109 yards on just five carries including an 85-yard scoring run in the fourth quarter.
Stewart touched on Scarbrough’s performance Saturday and his potential of being a key contributor in Alabama’s offense down the road.
“He’s the guy that as he develops more confidence in himself, and in what he’s doing and what Alabama’s trying to get done, is capable of being the most dangerous weapon between the tackles running the football.” Stewart said.
Saturday’s win at Tennessee improved Alabama’s road record to 35-6 under Nick Saban. Stewart relayed how the team enjoys playing the role of the enemy on the visiting team’s home field.
“Alabama’s ability to thrive on being the mortal enemy of everybody when they walk into the stadium, that’s a badge of honor. As much as the win gave that team a lot of pride, the fact that those final seconds at Neyland Stadium ticked down and there wasn’t nothing but crimson left in it is really something that they enjoyed as much as the win itself.” Stewart said.
Transitioning to Saturday’s big game with Texas A&M at Bryant Denny Stadium, Stewart discussed the challenge that Alabama has in putting Tennessee in the rear-view mirror and focusing on a quality Texas A&M football team.
The Crimson Tide Sports Network sideline reporter also highlighted the impact that transfer quarterback Trevor Knight could make for the Aggies Saturday afternoon.
Alabama hosts undefeated Texas A&M at 2:30 PM on CBS.
