Last season the Alabama Crimson Tide averaged 444.5 yards per game. Six of the team’s 14 games were against teams in the top 15. They passed for over 3,000 and rushed for over 3,000. Known for their traditionally staunch defense, the Tide had some prolific offensive numbers.

There was only one game where Alabama did not have a 100-yard rusher nor 200 yards from quarterback AJ McCarron. They were held to a season-low 310 yards and it was at home to an unranked team. It was a team who the year before allowed two 100-yard rushers and 389 rushing yards total along with 226 passing yards to Alabama. That team lost just one defensive starter from 2012. That team is Ole Miss.
