Told y'all Georgia State and the points was a good idea.— Barrett Sallee (@BarrettSallee) October 5, 2013
It appears Georgia State is going to cover the 54-point spread.
Dee Hart has seen the field a lot today for Alabama. The sophomore running back just had a nice 31-yard punt return.
He has also carried the ball four times so far.
Georgia State appears content to try to get on the positive side of the rushing total.
The Panthers have a new quarterback in the game in Ben McLane.
Even though it is not a lot of penalties, Nick Saban is not going to be happy about how many mistakes the Crimson Tide have made since the starters left the game.
The story of this game is the domination of Alabama up front. The Crimson Tide have been men among boys along the line of scrimmage.
Alabama has been able to run the football at will, while holding Georgia State to three yards rushing on 17 attempts so far.
Alabama forces a quick three-and-out, and the Crimson Tide will get the ball back once again.

End of 3rd Quarter: Alabama 45, Georgia State 0
Alabama is moving the ball, even without A.J. McCarron in the game.
The Crimson Tide are knocking on the door once again.
Quarterback Blake Sims is putting up numbers similar to McCarron's.
So far he has completed 11 of 13 passes for 119 yards and a touchdown.
Penalties are starting to kill the Panthers. Georgia State's drive here begins at its own 5.
Touchdown Alabama: Alabama 45, Georgia State 3—Mid 3rd Quarter
Blake Sims hits Chris Black with a 10-yard throw and catch. He broke a tackle at the 5 and took it into the house for another Alabama touchdown.
The touchdown completed a 10-play, 68-yard drive for the Crimson Tide.
The difference from A.J. McCarron to Blake Sims is remarkable. The offense runs so much more smoothly when McCarron is in the game.
Since Sims has entered, Alabama has committed its only two penalties of the game.
It is still easy to see that Sims has a wealth of potential.

The Panthers are finally on the board on their opening drive of the second half, as kicker Will Lutz boots through a 53-yard field goal to complete a nice 46-yard drive that lasted nearly four minutes.
C.J. Mosley is back. Take a breath.— Michael Casagrande (@ByCasagrande) October 5, 2013
It does not appear to be anything serious, as he is now back in the game.
Mosley is without question the most experienced player on defense for the Crimson Tide. He is the one player they can not afford to lose.
C.J. Mosley took a real shot on the play. Slow getting up.— Michael Casagrande (@ByCasagrande) October 5, 2013
C.J. Mosley ran off the field with an apparent injury.
