Alabama vs. Virginia Tech: Live Score, Analysis and Results

Alabama 35, Virginia Tech 10 – Final

Top-ranked Alabama survived a sluggish offensive performance, and boosted by a strong effort from the defense and special teams, the Tide cruised to a 35-10 win in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Classic in Atlanta.

Junior receiver Christion Jones returned a punt 72 yards for a score and took a kickoff 94 yards for a touchdown in the first half. Additionally, Tide safety Vinnie Sunseri picked off Virginia Tech quarterback Logan Thomas and returned it 38 yards for a score in the second quarter.

Despite the convincing victory, the Tide still have a number of questions to answer before heading to face Texas A&M in two weeks.

Alabama will have next weekend off before heading to face Texas A&M on Sept. 14, in one of the season’s most anticipated showdowns. Virginia Tech will host Western Carolina next weekend.
