Tennessee's rushing frustrates Alabama

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- While most everyone around the country is in a mini-state of shock looking at the 6-6 halftime score in the Alabama-Tennessee game, it's interesting to note that it's Tennessee's running game that really has Alabama upset.

Tennessee, which owns the SEC's worst rushing attack (89 yards per game), had 61 rushing yards at the half. To put that in perspective, Alabama had allowed just 84 total rushing yards in its first three SEC games. Alabama also entered the game allowing just 1.5 yards per rush.

I'm sure Nick Saban had a less-than-happy message for his front seven in the locker room.
