Hurts and No 1 Alabama outlast Colorado State 41-23

READY TO GO

"That was pathetic. We were on the field entirely too long".

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. The Rams also added 144 rushing yards, the most the Tide has allowed since Clemson rolled up 145 in the 2015 national championship game.

Hurts' efforts allowed backup quarterback Tua Tagovailoa to get into the game, completing one of his four pass attempts but for no yards. "We can not turn the ball over against a good football team and expect to win". The Tide was also without five-star freshman Dylan Moses, who didn't dress with an unspecified issue, and preseason starters Christian Miller (bicep) and Terrell Lewis (elbow), who underwent season-ending surgeries last week. "I don't care who you are, what team you are, that creates some issues and some problems".

"We have to go out there and play our game like all the other games".

"My ability to kick this way so far really has a lot to do with the fact that we just have a really good operation going", the fifth-year senior from Montgomery said. "If we would have gotten out to a better start, it might have been a different story".

"But we've got to get the guys that we have better and we're going to work hard to do that, and we're going to take the things that they did well and build on it and try to make corrections on things that they didn't do".

On its first possession of the second half, Alabama pounded Colorado State with its running game and a few quick passes. Rudolph completed 23 of 32 passes for 497 yards and the five scores before being pulled in the middle of the third quarter with the Cowboys (3-0) in full command.

Again on each of these plays, the Rams are releasing linemen downfield onto the linebackers off the defensive line very quickly and getting away with it. Linebacker Mack Wilson, No. 30, is repeatedly caught trying to read flow flat footed.

Jalen Hurts' first touchdown pass against Colorado State came right on time to Calvin Ridley.

"They made plays that we normally would make but didn't make", Alabama head coach Nick Saban said. "Busted a coverage and gave them a 50 yard play".

After Alabama missed a 52-yard field goal to open the second quarter, Colorado State drove down the field in 12 plays, setting up a 27-yard field goal that trimmed the Tide lead to 17-3 with 10:34 left in the half.

"We make all types of jokes every time somebody gets a turnover and doesn't score", the senior safety said. Yet Colorado State converted multiple third downs on the ground and overall showed a knack for doing some damage to the Tide on some standard running plays.

Colorado State had two promising second-half drives end with interceptions, with the second returned 65 yards by Hootie Jones to set up a touchdown. Both interceptions occurred deep in Alabama territory.

Jalen Hurts and Alabama scored in a hurry, then did it again - and again.

But it seems that some of those concerns are valid, especially in light of the perhaps Pyrrhic victory that the season opener against Florida State proved to be with all of its injuries. "We could never get off the field".
