T.J. Yeldon absolutely dominated the Crimson Tide's stat line. Alabama rushed as a team for 231 yards, and Yeldon was responsible for 111 of those yards. He showed quickness, vision and balance unlike any seen in recent memory from a freshman.
Yeldon also scored a touchdown in his Tide debut.
Yeldon's Overall Grade: A+
Jalston Fowler came in second to Yeldon in total yardage with 67 on the ground. Though he didn't hit paydirt in this particular game, he did ding the Wolverines for a huge 18-yard gain.
Fowler's Overall Grade: A+
Eddie Lacy had 35 yards and found the end zone once. Though he landed far short of Yeldon's yardage total, it has to be taken into account that Michigan had prepared for Lacy, whereas Yeldon was most likely ignored during Michigan's prep time.
He is better than his stat line showed against Michigan. At this point in the season, the voters may want to consider handing out three Heisman trophies sculpted to one-third the size of the usual trophy.
Lacy's Overall Grade: A
Dee Hart carried the ball the same number of times as Lacy, though he only gained a modest 19 yards. Hart is a valuable asset to this team, and he will likely have his opportunity to shine before the season is over.
Hart's Overall Grade: A-
