Ingram’s Heisman Moment – 2009 Mississippi State-Alabama Game

By

The 2009 Alabama/Mississippi State was your typical game. The Tide was on their way to their 13th national championship, but the Bulldogs still had upset on their minds.

A few years prior, the Bulldogs had won three straight over the Tide,so pulling the upset had to be on the mind on every Alabama senior who remembers being there when the Dawgs upset the Tide in 2006, so it was important that the Tide came out strong and ended strong.

With no score in the first quarter, the flood gates opened up for the Tide so to speak with a Greg McElroy 45 yard bomb to Darius Hanks and a one-yard run by Mark Ingram to take a 14-0 lead.

A field, another long touchdown pass from McElroy and a finally a 70-touchdown run by Ingram would be all she wrote for the Bulldogs as Bama would win,31-3. Ingram would end up with two touchdowns and 149 yards rushing as he continued his Heisman campaign.

His 70-yard touchdown run was considered by some as his Heisman moment.
