Tide turns to Ingram

PASADENA, Calif. -- Finally, a Mark Ingram sighting.

We didn’t see much of the Heisman Trophy winner during the first part of the first quarter. Alabama called five passes and got nothing.

Alabama started feeding Ingram to close the quarter and he delivered in his usual tackle-breaking fashion.

Watching him run through Texas defenders was another reminder of why he’s the best after-contact runner in the country.

I’d look for a lot more of Ingram as this game wears on.
