Day 6: Who has the best special teams?

WSFA 12 News is teaming with our Raycom sister station KLTV in Tyler, Texas to debate the biggest 11 points entering the BCS Championship game on January 7th...and each day, we will present a new debate point.

WSFA 12 News/Alabama is represented by Sports Director Jeff Shearer. KLTV/Texas is represented by Sports Director Ryan Peterson.

Day #6: Who has the best special teams?

Ryan says... The Texas special teams are truly special. The Longhorns don't have a weakness.  Texas is 4th in the nation in kick return average.  They've returned three kicks for touchdowns.  The kicking game is even better.  Texas kicker Hunter Lawrence is one of the best in the country.  He's 9 for 11 outside of 40 yards.  Lawrence drilled a clutch kick to beat Nebraska in the Big 12 title game.

Jeff says...Two words: Javier Arenas.  Dude's unbelievable.  If Texas is smart, they'll kick it away from him every time.  He's a game-changer.  One of greatest punt returners in SEC history.  Bama's kicker, Leigh Tiffin, is a first-team All-American.  One place where the Tide is vulnerable: kick returns.  From this season's  first game until now, seasoned Tide fans hold their breath on every kickoff.
