Crimson Chronicles (2013 game summaries) Week 1 #19 Alabama 59 Oklahoma State 17 Alabama started off the season with a HUGE statement. We're back! Bama stomped OK ST, 59-17. Bama started off strong as Trent Richardson practically had his way with the defense, only to fumble on the opponents 30. OK ST then picked up a few 1st downs, only to settle for a long FG try. The FG was just short, but long enough for RB J. White to return it 105 yards for the 1st score of the game. It was essentially over after that. OK ST broke a 50+ yard run for a TD to tie it on the next drive. Then, the flood gates opened. Richardson scored on a 13 yard TD pass and rushed for another 3 scores while amassing 160+ yards on the ground. RB Jamel White had a 105 yard FG return for a TD, a rushing TD, and nearly 70 yards on the ground. 3rd string RB E. Rogers added another score and CB J. Allen returned a kickoff for a TD. SR QB AJ McCarron went down eary...and often. He appears to be having hip issues. He missed a total of 2 quarter and realy wasn't that impressive when he was out there, going 7-13 for 130 yards. SO QB Danny Quinn came in for the injured McCarron and went 6-7 for 140 yards and a TD. The defense was a bit weak at times. They gave up nearly 100 yards on the ground and over 200 yards through the air, including a late TD pass. The Bama D did come up with an INT and 6 sack, 2 of which came from MLB McMahan, who had 10 tackles as well. This game got ugly so quick that Bama never had to worry about their passing attack. They were diving late in the game, keeping the clock running and the score somewhat respectable.
