Five-star QB Emory Jones


The Tide answered quickly, taking just a minute and 18 seconds off the clock, after senior wide receiver, Robert Foster, took Hurts' short pass through the entire CSU defense for a 52-yard touchdown.

But in one moment Saturday, as Foster darted across the field, weaving between Colorado State defenders on a 58-yard catch-and-run touchdown a minute before halftime, all those feelings were expunged.

Hurts finished the game 12-of-17 for 248 yards and two scores through the air, and a game-high 103 yards on the ground on 11 carries to lead the Alabama offense.

Colorado State, which had two fourth-quarter touchdowns, cut it to 17-10 briefly. "That allowed them to keep the ball".

Colorado State assembled a 12-play, 55-yard drive early in the second quarter and pulled within 17-3 on a 27-yard Wyatt Bryan field goal with 10:34 left in the half. Alabama appeared to go three-and-out with its first possession of the third quarter, but the Rams were flagged for an illegal substitution, and theTide capitalized with a 14-play, 88-yard drive that culminated with a 9-yard Scarbrough run to go up 31-10.

Crimson Tide defenders were not happy with Saturday's performance, as the Rams racked up 391 yards, had almost 34 minutes of possession time and converted 10 of 17 third-down opportunities into first downs.

A 46-yard field goal from Andy Pappanastos seemed to signify the rout was on, as Colorado State had just 11 yards of offense in the first quarter, while Bama had produced 216.

"I was really proud of the effort our football team gave tonight", Bobo said. "If we would have gotten out to a better start, it might have been a different story". We had a chance before the half to go down one score, 17-10, but they get an explosive play right before the half which wasn't good.

On the next defensive series, Alabama senior safety Hootie Jones camped under another long pass from Stevens at the Tide 24-yard-line for a second interception, returning it 65 yards to the Rams 11-yard-line in the third quarter.

Evans wasn't alone in his absence, with fellow injured linebackers Anfernee Jennings (ankle) and Dylan Moses (unknown) both sitting out Saturday's game. Nick Saban's team really doesn't need the help, but it has proven it can take advantage through the years.

"We have a lot of work to do", Saban said.

Colorado State: off next weekend before traveling to Hawaii.
