We're making fewer mental errors. "We've practiced better as the season has gone on". Tagovailoa and the Crimson Tide went into the locker room at half time up 21-0. Plus, they held Mississippi State's offense to only 169 yards and six first downs.

Vanderbilt had led all game until Missouri running backs Damarea Crockett and Larry Rountree III fueled a 99-yard drive to start the fourth quarter. Georgia is no stranger to the Crimson Tide benefiting from questionable officiating.

Miles Sanders ran for 159 yards and a touchdown on 23 carries, and McSorley completed 19 of 25 passes for 160 yards and a TD while matching Todd Blackledge's victory total from 1980-82.

Among the top story lines in college football this season is the eye-popping numbers that the Alabama offense is putting up during their undefeated season and reign as No. 1. The line gave up four sacks and were constantly under pressure as Mississippi State had a solid game plan which was not to allow Tua Tagovailoa to sit in the pocket and pick them apart all day. "We need to do a better job of protecting our quarterback so people don't get a chance to hit him".

(11) UCF 35, Navy 24: McKenzie Milton threw two touchdown passes and ran for a score, helping the Knights extend the nation's longest winning streak to 22 games with a win over the Midshipmen in Orlando, Florida.

Feleipe Franks silenced the home crowd twice after touchdown runs, seemingly sending a message after getting benched last week and booed earlier in the game, and Florida rallied to beat SC to end a two-game losing streak. The Alabama football defense was so good.it did not matter the Crimson Tide offense was ineffective in the second half.

Both McDougal and Daniels/Clifford have filed lawsuits to break their non-disclosure agreements and speak about the affairs. Cohen told prosecutors that as Trump discussed the payment to Daniels, he told him, "Get it done", the newspaper reported.

Tagovailoa started the fourth quarter on a stationary bike after getting his right knee checked out in the medical tent following a low hit. Of its 150 yards in the first quarter, 83 came on the ground.

The game was Tagovailoa's worst of the season, though he's set a ridiculously high bar. "I never thought I'd ever be in position to say that you get style points but the way our system is, that may be the way it is". "Josh was a demon running it on a couple of those runs".

For the second week in a row Saban was forced to call upon his third-string man, however, this time he was given a taller order.

"I'm not complaining about it", Saban said.

Saban also updated the status of starting left guard Deonte Brown, who left the game in the first quarter and was replaced by Lester Cotton.

Sure, Alabama still has the Iron Bowl with the arch rival Auburn Tigers let on the slate, plus a cupcake game versus the The Citadel before that.
