Derrick Henry sets Alabama record with fourth-quarter TD
Derrick Henry appeared to fall short of history by one foot.
The Alabama running back entered Saturday night’s game against Arkansas tied for the school’s all-time record with at least one rushing touchdown in 10 straight games.
But with less than three minutes remaining in the Crimson Tide’s 27-14 win, the junior still had not crossed the goal line after falling one foot short on a 15-yard run.
Perhaps sensing potential history — but more likely just sticking to the gameplan — offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin went right back to Henry on the next play, and the back easily crossed the line for his 11th straight game with a rushing touchdown.
