Former Alabama running back Mark Ingram wasn’t known for his long runs in Tuscaloosa.
But on Sunday, the former Heisman Trophy winner and current New Orleans Saints running back ran for a career-long 75-yard touchdown against the San Francisco 49ers to give the Saints a 28-10 lead in the second quarter.
Watch the long run below. Warning, there’s some expletive language:

In three years in Tuscaloosa, Ingram ran for over 3,000 yards, including 1,658 yards during his sophomore campaign in 2009 — the year Ingram won the Heisman Trophy. However, those numbers haven’t carried over to the NFL, where Ingram has just over 3,000 yards in six seasons.
Entering Sunday’s game, Ingram has run for 339 yards and one touchdown on 89 carries this season.
Ingram isn’t the only former Alabama running back making noise in the NFL on Sunday. Earlier in the day, another former Tide back and current Miami Dolphins player Kenyan Drake ran back a kickoff for the game-winning touchdown against the New York Jets.
