Alabama Vs. Penn State Halftime Score: Crimson Tide Takes Comfortable Lead To Break

At the moment, Beaver Stadium is unhappy valley. Alabama has come in and, after an early Penn State field goal, run up a 17-3 halftime lead.

The Tide has scored a pair of touchdowns on a pass from A.J. McCarron -- whose numbers are better than they were in the season opener against Kent State -- to Michael Williams and a three-yard rush by Trent Richardson. Overall, Bama has gained 171 yards to Penn State's 92.

The Penn State quarterback rotation, meanwhile, continues to struggle. Rob Bolden and Matthew McGloin are a combined 5-of-17 for 43 yards, which works out to an average of 2.5 yards per pass attempt. Silas Redd has 46 yards on 14 carries, but the long run of the day for Penn State remains eight yards. And the Nittany Lions have just one drive of more than 21 yards -- the 54-yard drive that ended in a field goal.
