Latest Alabama Football News – as They Beat Tennessee 45-7

As a sports blogger I try to only write recaps about events I watch. I watched parts of the Alabama Crimson Tide versus Tennessee Volunteers football game. I run a computer repair business so sometimes I miss parts of sporting events.

Anyways, this game was seven to nothing when I had to leave. When I returned Alabama was in control twenty one to nothing. Soon afterwards they jumped to a twenty eight to nothing lead.

Alabama has a perfect record so far this year with eight wins and no losses. Tennesse has three wins and four losses. This was the one hundredth meeting between these two institutions.

Alabama gained two hundred seventy two yards rushing. Tennessee Volunteers had to punt on their first five possessions. They finally ended a scoring drought in the second quarter.

Alabama Crimson Tide scored in every quarter. Ironically enough it was Alabama’s defense that scored this teams first touchdown in twelve quarters. Daniel Bituli ran back an interception ninety seven yards for the only score Tennesse could muster.

Latest Alabama football news is that the Crimson Tide have won eleven straight meetings against Tennessee. Alabama dominated this game in every statistical category. They had tirty five to seven first downs.

Alabama gained six hundred and five total yards on offense to Tennessee’s one hundred and eight yards. Alabama outrushed the Volunteers two hundred seventy two to sixty four yards. The Crimson Tide threw three hundred thirty two passing yards compared to Tennessee’s forty four yards.

One of the few stastics that favored Tennessee was turnovers. You see actually Alabama turned the ball over twice to Tenneessee’s one turnover. This mattered very little as Alabama rolled to their eighth win this year.

Up next, the Tennessee Volunteers play the University of Kentucky wildcats, while Alabama Crimson Tide play Louisiana State University Tigers.

Arizona State scored all of their points in the first half. They were able to shutdown and hold off the University of Washington. The Huskies did not score until less than six minutes remained in the fourth quarter.

They would not possess the ball on offense again. Neither team turned the ball over. Washington punted the ball seven times, while Arizona State punted six times.
