Bilo's Quick Peach Bowl Recap

Alabama 24, Washington 7

Alabama used a crushing defensive effort to crush Washington's hopes of playing for a national title next Monday, and the Tide will be once again in that spot after beating Washington in Atlanta. After finishing the 1st quarter tied at 7, Alabama rolled off 17 unanswered points to pick up the win.
Bo Scarbrough led the way on offense for Alabama, as he rushed for 180 yards on just 19 carries, and scored both Tide offensive TDs. His 180 yards rushing were an Alabama bowl record.
Alabama was purely dominant on defense, as Washington picked up 68 yards on their very first possession, and were then held to just 126 yards for the rest of the day.
Ryan Andserson's 4th quarter pick 6 sealed the win for Alabama, and was the 15th defensive score of the season for the Crimson Tide.
Alabama will now play in the title game for the 5th time in 8 seasons, and sets up a rematch of last season's title game with Clemson, who beat Ohio State in the Fiesta Bowl.
Jake Browning was picked twice in the loss for the Huskies, and he has now been picked 6 times in his last 5 games, after only being picked 3 times in his previous games dating to the start of the 2016 season.
The Huskies were held to just 1.9 yards per carry, and 3.9 yards per pass attempt.
Myles Gaskin, the leading rusher for the Huskies, was held to just 34 yards on 10 carries, and Browning finished just 20/38 passing for 150 yards.

2017 Openers: Alabama vs. Florida State @ Atlanta (9/2); Washington at Rutgers (9/1)
