Watch Alabama’s defense come up huge with a pick-six against Washington | FOX Sports

Alabama’s offense was struggling to score in the first half of the Peach Bowl on Saturday, so the Crimson Tide defense stepped up – scoring its 11th TD of the season.

Washington QB Jake Browning was under pressure and scrambling late in the second quarter when he tried to throw the ball away – but threw it into the arms of linebacker Ryan Anderson. Anderson then took it 26 yards to the end zone.

That pick-six gave Bama a 17-7 lead heading into halftime, as well as 17 unanswered points. And it ended an impressive streak for Browning – at a most inopportune time and location for the Huskies.

Jake Browning just threw his first INT in 104 pass attempts and it was a costly one.
