Sacks – Adrian Hubbard, 6“I’m extremely impressed with both (offensive and defensive) lines of Alabama. They are extremely skilled across the board. What makes them very difficult to defend is that they have a great playmaker on the perimeter (Cooper), where you can throw the ball down the field. Everyone talks about their great offensive line, but their (running) backs are physical. It’s going to be a tremendous challenge for our football team. They are constructed the right way.”

— Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly
