Score is 14-0 Alabama late in the 1Q. ND has punted the ball back to Alabama. On first down, Yeldon cutback on a zone run for 7 yards. It's 2nd & 3 at the AL 28.

Here's the video link:

Forward to 26:56 if the direct link doesn't work.

Pre-snap read:


The play: once again, it's a play-action fake with a McCarron rollout right.

Norwood runs a medium out and the H-back Johnson (31) releases from the backfield and goes underneath. Both seem open.


McCarron goes to Norwood. It's a shorter route and completion than the last big play, but Jackson misses the tackle and Norwood goes for an extra 12+ yards after the catch.

Jackson actually covered well until the cut, then he got turned around, and also flubbed the tackle badly.


This one isn't a blown read so much as poor technique and a lapse in fundamentals, I think.

Jackson is 0-2.
