When SEC fans complain about how playing Alabama isn’t a fair fight, this is exactly what they’re talking about.
In one of the more underrated plays from a college football Saturday that was full of drama, a true freshman defensive lineman reminded everyone why Alabama is considered the biggest, fastest and deepest team in the country.
The Crimson Tide was in the midst of a blowout 51-3 win at Bryant-Denny Stadium when Davis decided to show off his strength on a fourth-down attempt by the Mississippi State offense.
Watch as he bull rushes Mississippi State OL Darryl Williams, pushes him all the way to Bulldogs QB Damian Williams and then casually tosses him aside to record the sack:

Davis is a 6-foot-7, 315-pound true freshman out of Meridian, Mississippi. He was considered the No. 11 defensive tackle and No. 84 overall player in the 2016 recruiting class according to the 247Sports composite rankings.
This highlight serves as a not-so-subtle reminder that Nick Saban has a talent pipeline that continues to bring imposing players on both sides of the ball to Tuscaloosa. As long as the four-time national champion is in charge of the Crimson Tide program, the rest of the SEC West is going to have a hard time making a visit to Atlanta for the SEC Championship game.
