Thanks to Alabama defensive back Ronnie Harrison’s pick in the first quarter of Saturday night’s game against LSU, the Crimson Tide extends its interception streak to nine games.
The grab happened on the first play of the Tigers’ third drive and was LSU quarterback Danny Etling’s second interception this season. Harrison returned it 6 yards. By the end of the first quarter, Etling completed 5 of his 10 passes for 26 yards, and LSU trailed by a touchdown.
So far this season, Alabama has stolen at least one pass from every opponent it has played. The most snags in one game has been two, coming against Florida State, Colorado State and Ole Miss. That was Harrison’s third. He’s now tied with fellow defensive back Levi Wallace and linebacker Mack Wilson for the lead.
Also for the Crimson Tide, defensive backs Minkah Fitzpatrick, Hootie Jones and Anthony Averett have one interception each.
