He's baaaack! Alabama linebacker C.J. Mosley had been one of the Crimson Tide players of the week, as selected by the coaching staff, in Bama's first six games. In a win over Tennessee in which he was the leading tackler and had a pass interception to set up a touchdown, he was not a player of the game.
