Jahmyr Gibbs Plays His Best Game of the Season
The Crimson Tide faced the Arkansas Razorbacks on Saturday, and Jahmyr Gibbs dominated.
Gibbs, a transfer running back from Georgia Tech, had 206 rushing yards with two big touchdowns and 18 rushing attempts, averaging 11.4 yards per attempt, making him the first 200 yard rusher in one game since Brian Robinson, Jr. in the SEC Championship Game in 2021.
Gibbs doubled his rushing yards from the season in a single game. Throughout the season, he’s only had 172 rushing yards and no touchdowns.
His first touchdown of the game occurred early in the fourth quarter. Gibbs blitzed through the tough Razorback defense to score a 72 yard touchdown. Later in the fourth quarter, Gibbs scored a 76 yard touchdown to end the game and secure the win.
Prior to these touchdowns, the Razorbacks cut the large deficit to 28-23. Gibbs’ touchdowns allowed the Crimson Tide to gain a more comfortable lead, which resulted in Alabama’s 49-26 win.
Nick Saban mentioned in his post-game press conference that Jahmyr Gibbs "does a great job at pressing the hole."
"He gets the defense to commit, gets the linebackers to commit, makes a quick cut and has a quick burst through the hole. He's really really good at that," Saban said.
Alabama will face Texas A&M next Saturday at Bryant-Denny Stadium at 7 p.m. CST where we will hopefully witness Gibbs continue to dominate.
