No surprise, Alabama beat Colorado State...but it wasn't a complete slaughter. 31-6. I was expecting a much higher Alabama score. Well fought, Rams. You played a big school without being TOTALLy humiliated...
It was a classic hangover game, but Alabama hung in there and made the plays they needed to make. They were never in danger of losing the game, but they weren't running away with it, either. Bama took until the 4th quarter to convert their first 3rd down out of 10 attempts. But on the bright side, they racked up the yards, converting for a first down 6 times on 1st or 2nd down... that means lots of big plays. So they're capable of delivering a beatdown, they just weren't executing yesterday.
They have got to play better against SEC opponents from here on out.
