The Vaunted Alabama Defense

Yes, Bama has a good defense ... that was apparent Monday night, but as I was doing a little research about who they played this year, I found this interesting: only one team, Arkansas, was ranked in the Top 30 for total offense. They came in 29th.

Here are the rest of their opponents and respected rankings for Total Offense:

Kent State #119 North Texas #96 Penn State #95 Auburn #100 Vandy #98

Miss. State #85 LSU #73 South Carolina #75 Ole Miss #114 Tenn #104 CORRECTION ADDED: Florida #105

The only opponent that I didn't include was Georgia Southern.

So, I am wondering if Bama's defense is as good as advertised or if they caught a break playing a bunch of team with inept offenses, Arkansas, excluded

How would Bama's defense have fared in the Big 12 or Pac 12? Would they have an answer for RGIII or OSU? Would Tech had given them a run for their money?
