The No.1 Alabama Crimson Tide proves itself once again. The Tide is up 21 points on the No. 7 Florida Gators at the half of tonight’s match up. The Tide has more than doubled the Gators in first downs and total yardage. Alabama is an SEC powerhouse and will be for years to come. The Florida-Alabama game is just another validation.


Florida does not have much to brag about. Wide Receiver Cal Moore is the most dominate player as of the half. Moore has just two catches for 28 yards. Field goal kicker, Chas Henry, made the only points for the Gators. The Gators capitalized on the mistake of Alabama punter, Cody Mandell to get the field goal. Henry put the Gators on the board before the half in hopes of giving some momentum back to this lackluster Florida team.

Alabama’s Heisman, Mark Ingram, has 8 carries for 27 yards and two touchdowns. Enough said.



Field Goal: 39 yards, Chas Henry; seven play five (3)


Field Goal:28 yards, Jeremy Shelley; 10 play drive (3)

Touchdown: Mark Ingram; 9 play drive (10)

Touchdown: Mark Ingram; 8 play drive (17)

Touchdown: Michael Williams; 2 play drive (24)

* All extra points good by Jeremy Shelley.

The second half is just underway and the Tide is expected to beat Florida by a higher deficit than last year’s SEC championship contest. The Gators will suffer their first loss of the season and drop in rank by early Sunday morning.
