    Alabama Routs Georgia State
    Tide Rolls 52-10

    Tuscaloosa, AL- The Crimson Tide's new coach faced off against an old one in his debut. And Coach Trey's squad dominated Bill Curry's GSU team from the opening quarter and never looked back.

    TJ Yeldon set a new career high for rushing yards with 200 on 28 attempts and 2 TD's, but he didn't get rolling until the second half. AJ McCarron led the offense in the first half and went 16/21 for 231 yards 2 TD's and 2 interceptions. Neither of the interceptions were his fault, the first Kenny Bell watched a pass carom off his hands and directly to a GSU defender. And the second was tipped at the line of scrimmage and floated to a GSU LB. Unfortunately, both occured in the redzone, or the score would have been more lopsided.

    The Tide's defense played well all game holding the Panthers (Cougars? IDK) to 196 yards of total offense and keeping them scoreless until 1:12 left in the second quarter. The GSU kickoff was returned by Cyrus Jones for a 94 yard score. GSU attempted to score on their next posession, and threw three straight incompletions and gave Alabama the ball back with just under :30 left in the first half. McCarron found a wide open Kenny Bell on the second play of the drive for a 51 yard score. And just like that a tenuous 14-7 halftime lead became an insurmountable 28-7 lead for Alabama.

    The Tide used 2 backup QB's and both went 2/2, but Blake Sims recorded a rare 2/2 for 0 yards stat line. RS Freshman Alec Morris was 2/2 for 28 yards. TE Brian Vogler and Kenny Bell were the stars in the passing game. Voger caught 6 balls for 74 yards, and Bell caught 4 for 109 and a TD.

    Alabama has a tough game against last season's spoiler Texas A&M next week in College Station.
