Florida had an opportunity to apply some serious pressure, reaching the red zone toward the end of the first quarter, but Andre Debose couldn't quite haul in his second touchdown of the young night. Caleb Sturgis connected on his fourth straight field goal to make it 10-3.
For the second week in a row, a Marquis Maze kick return meant big things for the Tide. After last week's winding, 83-yard return, Maze pitched in a 70-yarder that set up a Trent Richardson touchdown dive like FOREVER later. Along the way, A.J. McCarron had to call the second red zone time out of Alabama's evening.
