For an unprecedented fourth time this season, a Crimson Tide player was named the Pontiac Game Changing Performance Winner.
Roman Harper's forced fumble against Tennessee garnered 72 percent of the vote making him the third Tide player to win the award this season.
Tyrone Prothro's acrobatic catch in Alabama's 30-21 win over Southern Miss was the first recipient and Keith Brown's catch and run in the Tide's 37-14 win over South Carolina was the second winner. Prothro and Croyle hooked up again on the Tide's first play from scrimmage in Alabama's 31-3 win over Florida to gain the third award of the season.
As a result of the award, Pontiac will donate $5,000 to the University of Alabama's general scholarship fund in Harper's name. Pontiac has now donated a total of $20,000 to the Alabama general scholarship fund this season.
