Alabama Vs. Michigan State, Capital One Bowl: Julio Jones Scores, Tide Routing Spartans 28-0

Thanks to the seemingly unstoppable Alabama offense and the feckless Michigan State defense, the Capital One Bowl is turning into a rout. For the fourth time, the Tide received possession, and for the fourth time, they scored. Late in the second quarter, they hold a 28-0 lead.

Wide receiver Julio Jones became the third Alabama player of the day to rush for a touchdown. Jones galloped 35 yards for the score, thanks in part to an impressive block by none other than his quarterback, Greg McElroy.

Alabama now has 255 total yards against Michigan State's 60. The Tide are clicking on all facets of their game: McElroy is allowed enough time to find open receivers, Mark Ingram and Julio Jones are evading tackles for big gains, and the defense is suffocating Spartan quarterback Kirk Cousins. With about two minutes remaining in the second quarter, Michigan State is punting yet again, and they're giving no indication that they can turn this affair into a competitive one.
