Hurts leads No. 1 Alabama past Fresno State

Hurts then kept a zone-read handoff and followed a pulling lead block from Hentges down the right side of the field before muscling his way across the corner pylon for the 55-yard score 39 seconds into the game. He kept on a zone read and sprinted for a touchdown, stepping out of a last-gasp tackle attempt at the 15.

"That can be a big momentum changer, coming out fast.", Hurts said.

For the second week in a row Alabama did not turn over the football and compared to six punts in week one, Alabama only punted three times against Fresno State. Hentges said it was his first touchdown since his senior year at Helias High School in Jefferson City, Missouri. Whatever you or I think of Hurts as a passer is only relevant to what he's asked to do inside the Tide's offense to give it the best chance of winning.

The cliched "week one to week two" adage suggests Alabama will show its most improvement Saturday, unwelcome news for a rebuilding Bulldogs program under first-year coach Jeff Tedford.

Alabama CB Anthony Averett vs. Fresno State WR KeeSean Johnson - Much like Ridley at Alabama, Johnson is the Bulldogs' No. 1 target, made evident again after Johnson pulled in a team-high seven receptions for 120 yards (an average of 17 yards per reception) in last Saturday's 66-0 drubbing of Incarnate Word.

He says, "Boy, it's so much harder than I thought it would be". By sunrise, though, the public still hadn't heard from her. This is really tough. "I had no idea". "It's real.

While I'd like to see Alabama display a more polished aerial attack, I'll give Daboll credit for not trying to make Hurts fit into a box that he simply doesn't feel comfortable being in and remembering that the objective of the game is to win, not put up big passing yards. "We need to move forward in terms of what we need to do to continue to try to improve and become a better team". UA quarterbacks haven't thrown an interception, and the Crimson Tide recovered its lone fumble. The interception led to a Pappanastos 22-yard field goal, pushing the Tide lead to 34-3 with 7:08 left in the game.

The first-ranked Alabama Crimson Tide are a force to be reckoned with. Early in the second quarter, freshman quarterback Tua Tagovailoa got the opportunity to come in and play with the first-team offense. The fan favorite Tagovailoa finished 6 of 9 for 64 yards with a 16-yard touchdown pass to fellow freshman Henry Ruggs III with 2:41 remaining.

With several players out with injuries, including four linebackers, four different players made their first career starts Saturday, including senior cornerback and former walk-on Levi Wallace. It has to happen sooner or later, but will this be the week that an Alabama opponent finally gets a takeaway?

Saban said Tagovailoa had a solid game, but still has room to improve.

After a Fresno State three-and-out, Alabama started its second drive of the game on its own 38-yard line.
