The going only gets tougher for Alabama’s normally explosive offense. The Crimson Tide was held out of the end zone for the first 59 minutes and 36 seconds by Auburn. Heisman Trophy front-runner Bryce Young and the fourth-ranked Crimson Tide are gearing up to face No. 1 Georgia and the nation’s top defense Saturday in the Southeastern Conference Championship game.

If he can’t play, that leaves Trey Sanders as the Tide’s only healthy scholarship running back.
