South Carolina’s defense was helpless to stop Alabama RB Najee Harris after he caught a second-quarter pass from Tua Tagovailoa.

Harris shedded multiple South Carolina defenders on the way to the end zone after a 42-yard catch and run on fourth down. Oh, he hurdled a guy too.

Harris, a junior, was a five-star recruit out of high school in 2017. But he hasn’t been Alabama’s feature back since 2019 because the Tide had the likes of Damien Harris and Josh Jacobs in the backfield as well. Yeah, he was Alabama’s No. 3 back in 2018. That’s depth that’s as unfair as the moves that Harris put on those South Carolina defenders.
