  Najee Harris just did a Najee Harris thing when he hurdled Notre Dame's cornerback Nick McCloud -- leaving a socially distant stadium in slack-jawed disbelief. Almost everyone was stunned. Almost. "That's what he do on the regular," Alabama's DeVonta Smith practically said with a shrug after the game. "That's just something that we see normally." The 53-yard run set up Alabama's second touchdown in a 31-14 win over Notre Dame. It didn't end with seven points since Harris was chased down short of the goal line but it was his longest run of the season. Smith is right. Harris has been hurdling players since high school, first showing it in an Alabama jersey at his first A-Day in 2017.

"For a big guy, it's pretty amazing that he can do that," said Nick Saban, who added he'd still rather Harris not do the hurdling. "He's kind of got a great feel when a guy is going to try to cut him, which a lot of guys, smaller DBs, all try to cut tackle, bigger backs. When he sees that head go down, man, he'll go over top of them in a heartbeat. It's been very effective for him." - Birmingham News
