On this date in Crimson Tide history: 

October 19, 1935: Playing with a broken bone in his left leg, Paul Bryant starred in Alabama's 25-0 win at Tennessee. The Atlanta newspapers doubting the story of the injury requested to review x-rays, which indeed revealed a broken fibula, before using the account of Bryant's handicap in its features on the game. Alabama's first touchdown came on a pass to Bryant who then lateralled to Riley Smith. A key block by Bryant after the pitch to Smith enabled him to score.

Crimson Tide quote of the day

Oct. 19: "It was just one little bone." – Paul W. “Bear” Bryant on playing with a fractured leg against Tennessee in 1935.
