Alabama Vs. Michigan State, Capital One Bowl: Greg McElroy Finds Marquiz Maze For TD, 'Bama Leads 35-0

We're in the second half of the Capital One Bowl, and nothing has changed. Michigan State can't accomplish anything offensively, while Alabama uses every opportunity it gets to score a touchdown.

The Spartans received possession to open the third quarter, but the Tide continued to neutralize running back Edwin Baker and pressure quarterback Kirk Cousins, and Alabama forced a three-and-out.

Upon receiving the punt, the Alabama offense continued to move down the field unabated. Mark Ingram broke through for a 14-yard run, and quarterback Greg McElroy found receiver Marquiz Maze for a 37-yard touchdown strike.

Alabama has scored a touchdown in all five of its possessions on Saturday. McElroy has completed 12 of 15 passes for 208 yards, five Tide players have rushed for a combined 135 yards, and the defense has effectively neutralized the Spartans' heralded running game. Alabama looks unstoppable.
