3 superlatives from Alabama’s 59-3 stomping of New Mexico State

·2 min read

It wasn’t the most anticipated matchup of the season for the Tide, but Alabama handled their business defeating New Mexico State 59-3.

With the win, Alabama improves to 9-1 on the season and will play its final home game of the season next week against Arkansas.

Each week we usually look at what we learned from that week’s contest, this week I decided to change things up a little bit. This week let’s look at three superlatives from Alabama’s dominating win.

Fans have waited all season for the Alabama running backs to create some explosive runs and today, Brian Robinson Jr. delivered.

Robinson finished the contest with 99 yards rushing and two touchdowns on just nine carries.

Next …Jamo dominates…

I know it’s New Mexico State, but Jameson Williams continued his dominating play today. Better known around Tuscaloosa as Jamo, Williams finished the contest with six catches for 158 yards and three touchdowns.

Finally …injury scares…

On an otherwise positive day in Tuscaloosa, the Crimson Tide did have a few injury scares in the matchup with New Mexico State.

JoJo Earle and Roydell Williams both went down with what appear to be serious lower leg injuries. DeMarcco Hellams left the game with a thigh bruise but his injury doesn’t look to be as significant as Earle’s and Williams’.

The injury to Williams could prove to be pivotal as Alabama is already thin at the running back position with the injury to Jase McClellan earlier in the season.
