Tailback tandem shines in Tide spring game

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP)—Alabama found the best way to make sure Mark Ingram and Trent Richardson had enough chances to carry the ball in the spring game was to split them up.

The impressive tailback tandem each turned in big plays for opposing sides in the Crimson Tide’s spring game on Saturday. When Richardson wasn’t catching a 28-yard touchdown pass, Ingram was racing 60 yards to set up a score. They pretty much picked up where they left off in rushing for 100-plus yards apiece in the national championship game win over Texas.
