Jalston Fowler Injury status: Fowler is to undergo surgery and will likely be out for the season, according to Nick Saban. (via al.com)

This is a big hit for the Tide. While Eddie Lacy and T.J. Yeldon are still a lethal duo, Fowler's presence on the field will be sorely missed. Prayers are with him for a full and speedy recovery.

Alabama 35, Western Kentucky 0 — FINAL SCORE.

Alabama looked flat on both sides of the ball as soon as they came back from the halftime locker room. The first half looked good for the Tide, with three turnovers forced and the offense clicking on all cylinders.

After halftime, though, it seemed that Western Kentucky had to get two first downs just to make the 'Bama D aware that there was a football game being played.

If the Tide plays the first half of Week 2 against Arkansas for 60 minutes, it will be a great game with a probable win in Fayetteville.
