In the last 12 quarters, the Crimson Tide has allowed nine points, including a shutout against Ole Miss.
While nice, linebacker C.J. Mosley said that isn’t one of the team’s goals.
“That’s great to have but when we go in every week and every day in practice that’s not like (our), (we are) not really looking at stats,” Mosley said. “Kind of making sure we practicing the right way, doing things the right way, executing our plan the right way. At the end of the day if we do that, we’ll have stats like that.”
The Tide allowed two field goals to Colorado State and one to Georgia State.
• Denzel Devall: Tide outside linebacker Denzel Devall (knee) has continued to practice with a brace on his left knee. Devall ran well in drills and has progressed throughout the week.
Alabama coach Nick Saban said Devall should play on Saturday.
“He’s doing well. He’s moving around fast,” Mosley said. “He was full go (Wednesday). He’s going to still protect his knee but at the end of the day he should be ready for Saturday.”
• LSU 2003 championship celebration: Saban confirmed he was invited to the reunion of LSU’s 2003 BCS National Championship Game, but won’t be able to attend because of the Tide’s game against Kentucky.
“I would absolutely go,” Saban said. “I have a tremendous amount of respect for all the players that were on the team and what they accomplished. I was really proud to be a part of it.”
Saban says he sent the team a video message for them to watch in private because “it’s nothing that anybody needs to know publicly.”
“That being our first national championship team and a bunch of guys that came to LSU at that time when we weren’t really good, you even have more sort of love in your heart for them for believing and trusting in the program and coming and doing all the hard work and proving what you needed to do to be the best,” Saban said. “I’m actually sorry I can’t be there. I’d love to see all those guys. I wish them all well.”
