"The first two possessions (of the second half) we drive down the field and turn the ball over, which really killed us", CSU coach Mike Bobo said. The Crimson Tide certainly lived up to the hype, jumping out to an early 14-0 at Bryant-Denny Stadium Saturday and scoring three times before the Rams were even able to record a first down.
Jalen Hurts made a gun symbol with hands, blowing off the barrels before tucking them back into their imaginary holsters.
Colorado State's high-powered offense took its shots against the Alabama defense and at times found success, including a pair of lengthy scoring drives in the second quarter. The drive was set up by an interception from safety Ronnie Harrison.
Hurts finished the game 12-of-17 for 248 yards and two scores through the air, and a game-high 103 yards on the ground on 11 carries to lead the Alabama offense. "We certainly tried to play some other players, but we didn't do a very good job functionally and really kind of let them back in the game". After owning the first quarter, Alabama managed just 85 second-quarter yards compared to 155 by the Rams.
The Tide led the Rams 24-10 at halftime, amassing 301 total yards of offense in the first half.
After missing his first two tries from 40 yards-plus this season, Tide redshirt senior Andy Pappanastos connected on both his attempts from long range Saturday, including a career-long 46-yard field goal to put the Tide up 17-0 with 5:13 left in the first quarter.

Alabama flirted with the idea of utilizing senior middle linebacker Rashaan Evans (groin) against Colorado State, but opted instead to give the veteran one more game's rest.
CSU added a touchdown with 9:53 left in the on the clock on a five-yard run on fourth down, to make it 41-17.
After Alabama's defense forced a quick three-and-out, Hurts hit Calvin Ridley on a slant and Ridley did the rest, outrunning everyone for a 78-yard touchdown to make it 14-0 with 8:56 left in the first quarter. Sophomore tight end Miller Forristall had a 12-yard reception midway through the third quarter but suffered a knee injury that Saban believes is a torn ACL.
Alabama returns to action Saturday, Sept. 23, with its SEC opener against Vanderbilt in Nashville, Tenn. Colorado State gets a trip to Hawaii next week.
