According to Nick Jones of BamaHammer.com, Alabama’s front seven on defense may be the best that Nick Saban has ever had with speed rushers and run stoppers. However, if there is a way that the Tide can be exploited, he believes it’s on the corners. Nick Marshall threw for 456 yards as Auburn put up 44 points against Bama in the Iron Bowl.
While Amari Cooper had 224 yards on 13 grabs, Sammie Coates hauled in a couple of touchdowns and 206 yards on five catches. So, perhaps Bud Sasser could be Maty Mauk’s go to guy on Saturday? However, we also know the importance of Missouri being able to run the football and while Jones claims the front seven for the Tide is remarkable, they’ve given up 676 rushing yards combined in the last four games, an average of 169 per game, against opponents, Tennessee, LSU, Mississippi State and Auburn.
