    Tough game to open the season vs top 10 Stanford on the road. We debuted freshman at QB and RB and the mistakes we're tough to overcome. True Freshman QB J.J. Williams started out very nice going 6-6 but two turnovers before half kept Stanford right in the game, while HB Eric Rust showed he can be a workhorse it took him awhile to adjust to the speed of the game. Ultimately he would finish with 125 yards and 2 TDs in goal line situations. On defense this was maybe the best game we've ever played. Held them to 20 points and they only really hurt us with their TE who seemed to be the size of most tackles. We didn't get much pressure but we we're constantly right around the ball making tackles and TFL. Our next game will be against Defending National Champion Virginia in 2 Weeks so we for sure have some things to tighten up on but we feel better than we did .

    UVA Tops Bama 42-31

    The Alabama-UVA game lived up to the hype. The #1 Crimson Tide brought their big, fast, athletic, and well-coached squad out to face the 2-time defending national champs of UVA. Alabama took the kickoff and struggled running the ball on the first play and threw an incomplete pass on the next. On a huge third and long from their own 22, Alabama’s Freshman QB threw a bullet on the post route to veteran WR Amari Cooper who left everyone in the dust with his 78 yard TD reception. This was exactly the start Alabama was looking for. UVA responded by leaning on their two offensive leaders. Kyle Dockins busted through the defense on a 15 yard run, and Watford had completions of 15 and 13 yards on the drive. It was capped off by a 1 yard TD run by Dockins. After a 3rd down sack, UVAs Dockins broke tackles and twisted his way into the endzone on a 12 yard TD run up the middle, ending the 1st quarter at a 14-7 lead for UVA.

    Alabama did not wait long to respond, with Ingram dropping a perfect pass into WR Black’s hands on a corner route. UVA responded again with a 12 yard rush on the reverse option to A-Back Eric Singleton, after a long methodical drive. Alabama was much more patient on their next drive, with the goal of working the clock down and keeping UVA from having an opportunity to score any points before the half. They were stopped just short on a 3rd and 2 inside the UVA 20 and they decided take the points and end the first half with a score of 21-17 in favor of UVA.

    The third quarter was when this game got very interesting. UVA took the kickoff and drove down the field relying heavily on the power running of Kyle Dockins to eventually score on a 3 yard run. UVAs defense then came up with a much-needed and hard to find stop of the Crimson Tide offense. Just when it looked like UVA would be able to pull away, Alabama’s DE Jonathon Allen made a great play. As Watford was pitching the ball to A-Back Tiquan Mizzell, Allen stuck out his paw and knocked the ball down allowing his teammate to jump on it and keep Alabama alive. The offense responded 2 plays later with a TD pass from Ingram to Black, who are coming together to make a nice passing duo early in this season. UVA was then shut down on offense and forced to punt from their own 6 yard line. The punt ended up being a complete field-changing, momentum-saving 91 yard bomb that stuck Alabama inside their own 10 yard line. With the score at 28-24 in UVAs favor, Alabama had the ball with their first chance to take the lead since the opening possession. Two plays later, with the last play of the 3rd quarter, UVAs middle linebacker came up big, picking off the inside slant route and giving UVA the ball with excellent field possession.

    After the interception, the fourth quarter started with all the momentum in UVAs favor. A big throw from Watford down the middle to the slot post route on a long 3rd down pretty much sealed this one, as they were able to punch the ball in a few plays later. A holding penalty on the next drive that negated a big run led to an interception by CB CJ Moore on the next play and really let UVA comfortably end this one after one more homerun by Kyle Dockins, who went 85 yards straight up the gut on a tired and likely disappointed Alabama defense. The game consisted of one more interception by UVAs freshman CB Rob Moore, the first of his career, a fumble by A-Back Singleton that was recovered by Alabama, as well as one last TD by WR Amari Cooper who had a nice game despite the loss. The final score of 42-31 went in UVAs favor after a hard-fought game on both sides.

    POG:
    UVA- B-Back Kyle Dockins 23 ATT 236 YDS 5 TD
    Alabama- WR Amari Cooper 7 REC 160 YDS 2 TD

    Good Game hornfaninbama I had a good time hanging out during this one. Best of luck this season, looking forward to playing you again in the future.

    (AP) Fort Worth - The Arkansas Razorbacks overcame 3 Rafe Peavey INTs to win in dramatic fashion 28-24 on Alex Collins 6 yard TD plunge with 12 seconds left in the 4th qtr. The defensive battle turned into an offensive shootout as the two teams combined to score 28 points in the last 3 minutes of the game. The Razorbacks moved to 1-0 as they prepare for their next game with a conference opener against Georgia.
