Trent Richardson dodged three Ole Miss tackles in the backfield, and then raced 76 yards for a score. But around the 20 yard-line, Richardson got cornered. While waiting for blockers, Richardson hit a Rebels’ DB with the stutter-step – it was like a Tyreke Evans crossover – and the defender fell to the ground. I’ll refrain from mentioning the defender by name because I feel bad for him. It’s got to be the filthiest move by a running back this season.
Richardson finished the game with 198 yards and four TDs.
This play wasn’t relevant to the outcome (Bama rolled, 52-7), and it wasn’t on a big stage (ESPN2), but the incredible footwork reminded me of Cam Newton’s touchdown run against LSU last year.
