Alabama searching for 'alpha dogs' on defensive line

Over the last two springs, Alabama football's calling card, its defensive line, has lost a considerable amount of talent to the NFL draft. Four D-linemen have been selected in the first or second round of the draft since 2016, and another, Da'Ron Payne, is expected to go in the top 20 picks in less than three weeks.

The Crimson Tide lost in game one's pitcher's duel 1-0, but came back to win 5-1 in the second game. “Overall, I’m excited to have won consecutive SEC series against ranked teams,” Alabama coach Brad Bohannon said in a press release. “Now, we have to carry that momentum into our midweek game on Tuesday.”
