Colorado State 6, Alabama 31 – Final

Top-ranked Alabama survived a sluggish overall effort in its 31-6 win over Colorado State.

Up 17-6 early in the fourth quarter, and one play after a replay awarded the Tide a fumble deep in Colorado State territory, AJ McCarron hit DeAndrew White for a 30-yard touchdown pass to seal the victory.

The Tide’s offense struggled, but the special teams unit blocked a punt that was returned for a score, and the defense held the Rams out of the end zone when they threatened to score twice in the third quarter.

Alabama improves to 3-0 and will face No. 23 Ole Miss next weekend. Colorado State drops to 1-3 and will host UTEP.
