  Alabama's 31-29 win over Florida continued some impressive streaks for the Crimson Tide. With eight straight wins over the Gators, Alabama tied its record for the second-longest winning streak by any team against Florida. The Crimson Tide last accomplished that feat from 1964-86. Alabama also won its 32nd straight against an SEC Eastern Division opponent. 'Bama has won 43 straight games when scoring a touchdown on its first offensive series. - AP College Football

  Bryce Young's first collegiate road start was a rousing success, a three-touchdown performance that helped top-ranked Alabama hold off No. 11 Florida 31-29. The defending national champion Crimson Tide stopped a 2-point conversion with 3:10 left and extended its winning streak to 17, making it 32 in a row against teams from the SEC's Eastern Division. The Gators have dropped eight straight in the series and fell to 0-5 against No. 1-ranked teams at Florida Field. This one was closer than oddsmakers and just about everyone else expected, with 14 1/2-point underdog Florida having a chance to tie the game in the closing minutes despite playing without dynamic backup quarterback Anthony Richardson. - AP College Football

  Bryce Young's first collegiate road start was a rousing success, a three-touchdown performance that helped top-ranked Alabama hold off No. 11 Florida 31-29 in the Southeastern Conference opener for both teams Saturday. The defending national champion Crimson Tide stopped a 2-point conversion with 3:10 left and extended its winning streak to 17, making it 32 in a row against teams from the SEC's Eastern Division. The Gators (2-1, 0-1 SEC) have now dropped eight straight in the series and fell to 0-5 against No. 1-ranked teams at Florida Field.

This one was closer than oddsmakers and just about everyone else expected, with 14 1/2-point underdog Florida having a chance to tie the game in the closing minutes despite playing without dynamic backup quarterback Anthony Richardson. Coach Dan Mullen held Richardson out as a precaution because of a strained right hamstring and said he would only be available in case of an emergency. That never became the case even though the Gators trailed 21-3 at the end of the first quarter. Young built the lead with TD passes to Jase McClellan, Jaheel Billingsley and Brian Johnson. The Gators rallied and were in position to tie late. Dameon Pierce capped a 75-yard drive with a 17-yard run that made it 31-29. But fellow running back Malik Davis failed to get the 3 yards needed on the 2-point conversion. - Alabama Football/AP College Football

  Nick Saban thinks it might be time for a reckoning like his father used to deliver with a pounding of his hand on the dinner table. Sure, Bryce Young threw three touchdown passes and Jase McClellan scored three times to help fuel No. 1 Alabama to a 48-14 rout of FCS Mercer on Saturday. But it was still a performance that left plenty for the Crimson Tide coach to scowl about and harp on, just as Nick Sr. did at times with his various tasks and chores. Better to learn the lessons from two lopsided wins. "If you didn't do any of those things right, you were going to do it again," Saban said. "We might need a little of that somewhere along the line." The Tide (2-0) started sluggishly on offense in what amounted to a warmup game before the Southeastern Conference opener at No. 13 Florida, but potentially more notably had star linebacker Will Anderson Jr. leave with a right knee injury. Saban said Anderson was questionable against the Gators.

Asked to evaluate his offense's first few possessions, Saban said "we stopped ourselves" on four first-half possessions with penalties and dropped passes. "Well, what'd you think? I mean, it's kind of a loaded question, isn't it?" the coach responded to a reporter. "I mean, if it stinks it stinks. It smells bad for everybody. Smell bad for you? Yeah. What do you want me to do, make excuses for them?" Special teams struck before Young and the offense. Chris Braswell blocked a punt, which McClellan scooped up for a 33-yard touchdown, and the expected rout was on against the Bears (1-1). It just took eight minutes and change. - Alabama/AP College Football

  Alabama cornerbacks Josh Jobe and Jalyn Armour-Davis didn't start the game with Mercer on Saturday. Jobe was spotted in street clothes for the top-ranked Crimson Tide's home debut against the FCS team. It wasn't clear why the pair weren't available. Neither went through pre-game warmups. Freshman Kool-Aid McKinstry, one of Alabama's top recruits in the latest class, started opposite junior Marcus Banks. An Alabama spokesman said coach Nick Saban would address their status after the game. - AP College Football

  09/06/21 - Christopher AllenrSr/2022, Alabama, 6-3, 242 (DS#5 OLB) + More +

  Alabama outside linebacker Chris Allen has a fractured foot and could be out for the rest of the season, coach Nick Saban said Monday. Allen was hurt on a sack of Miami quarterback D'Eriq King early in the second quarter of the top-ranked Crimson Tide's 44-13 opening victory on Saturday, forcing a fumble on the play. Saban said the injury will require surgery. "He's most likely out for the year," Saban said. Drew Sanders, a five-star recruit in the 2020 class, replaced him and had six tackles. Sanders, who is expected to start in Allen's place, had nine tackles in 11 games last season. Allen gave Alabama a formidable pass rushing duo at outside linebacker opposite Will Anderson Jr. He led the Southeastern Conference with 13 tackles for loss last season and had six sacks in his first year as a starter. - AP College Football

  09/04/21 - Bryce YoungSo/2024, Alabama, 6-0, 194 (DS#1 QB) + More +

  Bryce Young didn't take long to prove he's the man to lead No. 1 Alabama in its quest for another national title. Young became the first Crimson Tide quarterback to throw four touchdown passes in his starting debut and the defending champions romped past No. 14 Miami 44-13 in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game on Saturday. After sending another batch of stars off to the NFL, it looks like Nick Saban's team simply reloaded for another run at the title.

Young, a sophomore from Southern California, completed 27 of 38 passes for 344 yards - a performance that even managed to please his demanding coach. "I thought Bryce did really, really well," Saban said. "The poise he played with, the command he had. He kind of took what the defense gave him and really directed the offense in a positive way." Young opened with a 37-yard touchdown pass to John Metchie, hooked up with tight end Cameron Latu on a pair of scoring plays and buried the Hurricanes with a 94-yard TD strike to Jameson Williams early in the third quarter. "He did a great job of getting the ball to the right guy at the right time in the right place," Saban said of Young. Before Young, Mac Jones and Joe Namath had been the only quarterbacks to throw three TD passes in their first starts for Alabama. "There was a lot of anticipation," Young said. "It was definitely fun to be out there with my guys." - Alabama/AP College Football

  09/02/21 - LaBryan RayrSr/2022, Alabama, 6-4, 285 (DS#7 DE) + More +

  Alabama football seems to be getting more and more healthy as the season arrives. During the SEC teleconference Wednesday, coach Nick Saban said defensive lineman LaBryan Ray and offensive tackle Kendall Randolph will be available for the game Saturday against Miami. "Both guys have been battling some injuries," Saban said. "I think both will be ready to play in the game. We're very encouraged how they were doing, how they've been doing and the progress that they're making." The news on Ray is especially significant, considering Saban said at the beginning of preseason practices that Ray was dealing with a significant groin injury that happened toward the end of the summer. - Montgomery Advertiser

  Asked again about Jahleel Billingsley, Saban said, "We're just trying to get Jahleel to be a very responsible, disciplined person as well as a responsible, disciplined player. [He] certainly is a very talented guy, and we have high hopes for how he can contribute to the team. How that happens is sort of up to him, and his choice." Billingsley was listed as the co-backup along with Major Tennison at tight end on Monday's depth chart. Later that day, Billingsley tweeted, "Come on now I'm the 3rd option" with a crying emoji before deleting that tweet. - Birmingham News

  Bryce Young has never started a college football game, and he's attempted just 22 passes in his career. Yet, Alabama's starting quarterback is listed among the favorites to win the Heisman Trophy. Young and Clemson's DJ Uiagalelei, a fellow first-year starting quarterback, each have 11-to-1 odds by BetMGM to win the Heisman. Oklahoma quarterback Spencer Rattler is the Heisman favorite, with 6.5-to-1 odds. Young's place among the Heisman favorites makes sense when you figure he's the starting quarterback for the team favored to win the national championship. But if recent history is a guide, the Heisman winner won't be listed among the preseason favorites. - Montgomery Advertiser

  Alabama sophomore outside linebacker Quandarrius Robinson has been suspended indefinitely as he faces a DUI charge. Robinson was involved in a three-car collision in Tuscaloosa late Saturday night. Nobody was injured but Robinson was taken to jail, police said. "He'll get evaluation and also go through the protocols that we have for any alcohol or drug-related issue," coach Nick Saban said Monday. A Jackson-Olin High School product, Robinson was the No. 65 overall prospect in the 2020 recruiting class but didn't appear in a game as a freshman last season. Robinson was not listed on the two-deep depth chart released Monday. - Birmingham News
