SEC won’t suspend Alabama’s Dial for hit on Murray
Question of the Day
BIRMINGHAM, ALA. (AP) - The Southeastern Conference won’t suspend Alabama defensive end Quinton Dial for a hit on Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray.
The league said in a statement Friday that it had reviewed video of that play and others in the SEC championship game and that the two schools would handle any punishments internally.
Dial leveled Murray during a second-quarter interception return. He was not penalized on the play.
The SEC statement says the conference is satisfied with actions taken by the schools. The Crimson Tide will play Notre Dame for the national title on Jan. 7 in Miami.
Coach Nick Saban typically doesn’t disclose any internal punishments.
Dial has played in all but one game and has 21 tackles, including 4 1/2 behind the line of scrimmage.
