At halftime Saturday in Bryant-Denny Stadium, The Citadel and No. 1 Alabama were tied, 10-10.
That’s not a typo.
The Bulldogs, members of the Division I Football Championship Subdivision and the Southern Conference, made the 500-mile trip from Charleston to Tuscaloosa and had the Tide on the ropes at home.
Five different players ran the ball for The Citadel in the opening 30 minutes of play, including Dante Smith, who became the first player to score against Alabama in the month of November. The Bulldogs didn’t throw a single pass in the first two quarters.
Bulldogs players weren’t the only ones having fun. The Citadel’s Twitter account might be having the best performance of the day.
After Alabama boasted about “No score November,” The Citadel responded, and then took a shot at both Mississippi State and LSU.
The Tide fumbled the kickoff to start the second half, and the Bulldogs failed to take the lead, missing a 45-yard field goal.
Alabama marched 72 yards down the field, scoring in five plays to re-take the lead.
If The Citadel is unable to keep it close, it was fun while it lasted.1, Alabamaamp039s, Citadel, entering, expense, fun, halftime, Tied, Twitter
