Former Alabama OL Mike Johnson Reflect on Cody’s Blocked FG in 2009
There are moments in Alabama's history that are simply unforgettable. From the goal line stand against Penn State to more recently Tua Tagovailoa's pass to DeVonta Smith to win the national championship last season.
But one play in Crimson Tide history kick started the dynasty we see today under Nick Saban and that was the Terrance Cody block against the Tennessee Volunteers in 2009.
The Crimson Tide kicked off that season with No.7 Virginia Tech and rolled through their schedule ahead of the Third Saturday of October and with the game on the line with the Volunteers kicking the field goal to win the game, Cody blocked his second kick of the game and the Crimson Tide defeated the Volunteers 12-10.
They would go on to go undefeated and defeated the Texas Longhorns in the national championship game to win their first championship of the Nick Saban era.
Former Alabama offensive lineman and two time All-American Mike Johnson joined The Game with Ryan Fowler to reflect on Cody's blocked field goal that kicked off the Alabama dynasty under Nick Saban, evaluates Alabama's season through seven games, Alabama's offensive line, and the tradition of smoking cigars after a Volunteers victory.
