Alabama's Jalen Hurts talk about victory over Colorado State

Alabama's Jalen Hurts talk about victory over Colorado State

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.

After Clemson forced a three-and-out to open the game, Bryant moved the Tigers 79 yards in 10 plays, taking care of the last eight himself to stake Clemson to a 7-0 lead. Scarbrough outcarried fellow Crimson Tide running back Damien Harris 12 to 11 on the day. Alabama, now 3-0, will play the first of seven straight games against Southeastern Conference foes this week when the Crimson Tide visit Vanderbilt, which also is 3-0.

The start to the game was the nightmare Colorado State hoped to avoid, with Jalen Hurts hitting big plays with his legs and arm as the Tide rolled out to a 17-0 lead with 5:13 still remaining in the first quarter.

Moses became the fifth Alabama linebacker to miss time this season with an injury, joining outside linebackers Christian Miller (bicep) and Terrell Lewis (elbow), who are out for the season after undergoing surgeries last week. "We came here to do one thing and that was to win the ball game, but I'm proud of our effort and how hard they played".

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. Nick Stevens completed 21 of 38 passes for 247 yards.

Daniil Kvyat did improve on his second run, but only by enough to take 13th ahead of the second Force India of Esteban Ocon. Renault's Jolyon Palmer will start ahead of the Mexican after missing out on Q3 by the smallest of margins.

Alabama's sophomore quarterback had 351 yards of total offense and three scores, including a 27-yard touchdown run to start the scoring, and a career-long 78-yard touchdown strike to Ridley to cap the Tide's first two offensive series.

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 put in its second-team offense for much of the fourth quarter before reinserting its first team grouping for the final 1:46 of the game. Saban said Forristall will have an MRI on Sunday.

"I was really proud of the effort our football team gave tonight", Bobo said.

In the fourth quarter, the Tide added to its lead when Pappanastos netted his second field goal of the night, this time from 43 yards out, capping an eight play 65-yard drive with 14:51 left in the game. Colorado State gets a trip to Hawaii next week.
