TUSCALOOSA, Ala. - Sophomore place-kicker Adam Griffith continued to watch honors roll in for his performance against West Virginia, while Alabama donned full pads for the first time this week as they focus in on the game plan for Florida Atlantic.
Griffith, from Calhoun, Ga., was named one of the Lou Groza Collegiate Place-Kicker Award's "Stars of the Week" and the SEC Special Teams Player of the Week following his 4-for-4 performance against the Mountaineers. He connected on field goals of 47, 41, 27 and 45 yards with three extra points to score 15 points for the Tide. He also became the first Alabama kicker to connect on three field goals of 40 or more yards since 1993.
The Crimson Tide makes its first appearance on the SEC Network Saturday at 11 a.m. Dave Neal and Andre Ware will have the call with Laura Rutledge on the sidelines.
