Alabama All Day: The Screen Game

New, 25 comments

Throughout the first half, one of the few areas in which Florida had found serious success was in bringing a blitz from the corner. Alabama patiently took its lumps and then, with four minutes left in the first half, made the Gators pay.

A corner blitzer creeps in pre-snap (top of the screen).

Ingram stays in to pick up the blitzing corner...

Alabama_03_medium

Bama's linemen start to release upfield and you know what's coming...

Yup, Ingram lets the corner fly right by and turns to receive the screen. Two Bama linemen converge on the one Gator still in position to make a play.

McElroy easily finds Ingram, who races upfield for 69 yards, the lone Florida linebacker smothered by two blockers.
