Alabama corner Dry Kirkpatrick is well on his way to shutdown status. Quarterbacks are avoiding him like the plague.
On the other side however Alabama has trouble.
Regular starter Dequan Menzie hasn't been healthy all fall and he was having more trouble against Penn State.
In marches true freshman Demarcus Milliner, the No. 1 high school corner last year. Milliner, however, has been banged-up much of the fall as well.
Penn State went after him big time last Saturday and Milliner showed his youth and re-tweaked his hammy.
Phelon Jones came in to finish the game. Overall, Alabama is very unsettled at corner—will Duke be able to take advantage?
