Michigan Vs. Alabama Final Score: Crimson Tide Rolls The Wolverines, 41-14

It was never a contest at Cowboys Stadium on Saturday night, where the Alabama Crimson Tide took apart the Michigan Wolverines 41-14.

Despite a bevy of new starters on defense, Alabama was dominating throughout a game that never lived up to it's hype. The Crimson Tide picked up right where they left off by beating a Big Ten team that many felt could be a dark-horse to make a run at the National Championship.

Nick Saban had to be thrilled with his squad's rushing attack, which totaled 226 yards, 111 of them courtesy of T.J. Yeldon on just 11 carries. Yeldon, a freshman who was thought to simply be a backup to Eddie Lacy, proved very valuable on the evening with a touchdown as well.

A.J. McCarron wasn't overpowering but certainly was successful, amassing 199 yards and two touchdowns through the air.

Things weren't so rosy for Denard Robinson. The Heisman hopeful endured a miserable night completing just 11-of-26 passes for 200 yards, including two interceptions and a touchdown. He also rushed for 27 yards.
