After every win, Will Muschamp always hands out awards, or Players of the Day honors, to different position groups but one group was missing from this week’s run down.

Muschamp didn’t award a defensive lineman of the day after a 41-7 win over Vanderbilt, expressing disappointment in the group’s inability to hold steady in the run game.

The frustration stemmed from the play of Zacch Pickens and Jabari Ellis, who struggled at times to clog up the middle and limit some of Vanderbilt’s explosive plays in the run game.

“We gave up 3.75 a carry and gave up four big run plays. I thought we played high and soft up front,” Muschamp said. “We didn’t disengage; we didn’t get off blocks. We better get that corrected before Saturday. We have to play better pad level and do a better job disengaging and getting off blocks.”
