Five Alabama players were recognized by the coaching staff for their outstanding performances following Saturday’s game against Texas A&M. Amari Cooper and Eddie Lacy were named players of the week on offense while John Fulton and C.J. Mosley represented the defense. On special teams, Cody Mandell was selected.   Cooper recorded a game-high 136 yards on six catches with one touchdown. His 54-yard score in the fourth quarter pulled the Crimson Tide within five at 29-24. He also had a 50-yard catch in the fourth quarter. Cooper leads the team with 38 receptions, 608 yards and six touchdowns. Lacy totaled 127 yards on the day, including 92 on the ground on 16 carries. He had four receptions for 35 yards. Lacy is Alabama’s top rusher through 10 games with 771 yards and also leads the team with nine rushing touchdowns. Mosley led all players with 14 total tackles, including nine solo stops. He had a sack for an eight-yard loss at the Texas A&M 1-yard line that eventually led to a punt and a Crimson Tide field goal. He leads the team with 83 tackles on the season and is tied for the lead with four sacks. Fulton got the start at cornerback and responded with five tackles (four solo) and a career-high four pass break-ups. After a tough start, Alabama’s defense settled in to hold the Aggies to nine points over the final three quarters of play.   On special teams, Mandell averaged 56.5 yards on four punts. He had two kicks of 60 yards and two others of 54 and 52 yards, respectively. Mandell ranks 14th nationally in punting with a season average of 44 yards.
