Alabama Beats San Jose State Soundly in 2010 Season Opener


No. 1 Alabama cruises past San Jose State 48-3 ! It had it all...from a one handed Julio Jones TD snatch to several TD jaunts by Trent Richardson and Eddie Lacy ran for 177 yards and 4 TDS (2 each) combined with Lacy carrying for a team leading 111 yards. McElroy connected on 13-of-15 passes for 218 yards, while McCarron finished 9-of-15 for 116 yards.

Personally.. I did not get to see this game due to a "honey-do job that required 8 hours under the house in the nasty crawl space, but I did catch what could of it on the radio. If you did not see it either, you will certainly need to see the highlight reels below on video…. Especially the Julio Jones one handed circus catch. There were a few snags in the game where mistakes were made, like a Eddie Lacy fumble going into the end zone that resulted in a touchback for San Jose State. Julio Jones had an easy wide open catch that he dropped in the open field, but I believe that the one hander made up for the miss. I would like to see him straighten out that issue however in the rest of the season. Marquis Maze made a long 48 yard TD catch.

The defense played awesome in only allowing 175 yards of total offense for SJSU and Robert Lester snatching a INT. Two native Alabamians on San Jose State's roster were largely responsible for the Spartans' only score of the day as SJSU went down the field 67 yards in eight plays on its first drive. Tuscaloosa native, Junior Brandon Rutley, ran 3 times on the drive, including a 32-yard scamper to the Alabama 47. After 5 more plays, redshirt freshman Harrison Waid, born in Huntsville, placed the Spartans on the scoreboard with a 31-yard field goal to cut the deficit to 7-3. However, that was the last of the scoring from SJSU. The rest of the day Alabama's D only allowed 108 yards.

If you, like me, did not see the game, then these highlights below will help satisfy the craving to see the Tide in action possibly. Looking forward to the meat of the schedule starting with Penn State next week after eating a cupcake first!
