The Alabama Crimson Tide dominated the Michigan Wolverines from the start, scoring on four straight drives to help get themselves up 31-0 early in the first half. A.J. McCarron managed the game well, throwing two touchdowns early to start the Alabama scoring.
McCarron completed only 11 passes, but did throw for 195 yards for about 9.5 yards per attempt and the first two Crimson Tide scores. McCarron found Kenny Bell for two catches for 26 yards on his first touchdown drive, setting up a short two yard touchdown throw to Michael Williams. McCarron's most highlight-worthy throw was a 51 yard touchdown shot down the right sideline to DeAndrew White to put Alabama up 14-0.
The Alabama run game and defense took over from there. T.J. Yeldon piled up 111 rushing yards on 11 carries and had a fourth quarter touchdown to cap off the scoring. The Crimson Tide defense then forced three turnovers, including two critical interceptions thrown by Michigan's Denard Robinson. One of Robinson's interceptions was thrown right to Alabama's C.J. Mosley for a touchdown return, and the other set up an Eddie Lacey touchdown run.
Robinson threw two touchdowns after that, but it was too little, too late for Michigan. Here are the highlights of the game courtesy of ESPN.
