  • BCS National Championship

    BCS National Championship
    In this game, Alabama played Texas in the championship and Alabama would go ahead and win. Julio did not do that much during this game he had only 23 receiving yards while on the other sideline the top receiver had about 130 receiving yards. This is because Alabama relied heavily on the run game. Although Julio did not do that well he could get the scouts attention for his blocking skills and how maybe he can run routes.
