Bo Scarbrough rumbles for 68-yard touchdown in Peach Bowl

  Bo Scarbrough opened up a 24-7 Alabama lead in the fourth quarter on his long touchdown run.

Alabama running back Bo Scarbrough brought back memories of another famous running back named Bo when he scored a physical 68-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter of Saturday's Peach Bowl against Washington.

The bruising back, coming in at 6-2, 228 pounds, took the handoff to the left, shook off two would-be tacklers at the line of scrimmage and bursted free down the left sideline for a game-breaking score. He finished the play by cutting back to the middle of the field to elude the last Huskies defender standing.

The touchdown finished off a 98-yard drive that broke open a 24-7 lead for undefeated Alabama, who won by that score to clinch a spot in the College Football Playoff title game for the second-straight year. It also added to a career-high total for the talented sophomore.

Scarbrough finished with 180 yards and two touchdowns on 19 carries. That passes his previous high mark he set earlier this season against Tennessee.
