TUSCALOOSA, Ala. - Alabama linebacker C.J. Mosley got his senior season started in the right way last weekend against Virginia Tech with seven tackles as the Crimson Tide limited Virginia Tech to 212 yards in a 35-10 victory at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta.

Mosley is a candidate for the Bednarik Award, the Butkus Award, the Lott Trophy, the Bronko Nagurski Trophy, the Lombardi Award and the Walter Camp Award. He was a consensus All-American in 2012 after registering 107 tackles and leading the nation's No. 1 defense.

Against Virginia Tech, Mosley's Tide defense allowed just 212 yards, including a mere 59 yards in the air. Tech got 77 of those yards (36 percent of the total yards allowed) on one busted play. In Mosley's 41 games at the Captsone, the Alabama defense has allowed an average of 10.5 points and 232.2 yards per game.
