In the Alabama Crimson Tide’s annual A-Day game Saturday, freshman running back T.J. Yeldon proved Alabama still has some talent in the backfield after the departure of Trent Richardson.
In front of a crowd of 78,562 fans, Yeldon helped the White team defeat the Crimson team 24-15 by leading all running backs with 88 rushing yards. He made numerous big runs and averaged 5.5 yards per carry. Yeldon showed some catching ability as well, hauling in a game-high 91 receiving yards and a touchdown. For his performance, Yeldon was awarded with Dixie Howell Most Valuable Player of the Game award.
