Uawjm9ynziweuwrkceas

The Tigers moved the ball on their next three possessions - a 36-yard march that ended in a missed Greg Huegel field goal, a 41-yarder that led to a made field goal, and then a 90-yard touchdown drive punctuated by a 79-yard dagger from Bryant to Ray Ray McCloud, handing Clemson a 16-7 lead with 4:06 to play in the half.

Hurts passed for 248 yards and completed 12-of-17 passes.

Alabama outgained Colorado State 216-11 in total yardage during the first quarter.

Colorado State football went into Tuscaloosa, Ala. knowing that a matchup with No. 1 Alabama would likely be the toughest competition they faced all season. Bo Scarbrough ran for a nine-yard score and Damien Harris ran for a five-yard touchdown.

As he did last week, Jalen Hurts opened things with his legs.

Hurts set the tone early, breaking a 14-yard gain on a draw on Alabama's first play from scrimmage.

President Trump won't withdraw from Paris climate deal
In June, Trump announced he would leave the agreement , saying he was doing so because "I am fighting every day for the people of this country".

Following a Colorado State three-and-out, the Crimson Tide needed just four plays to go 95 yards and score its second touchdown of the game when Hurts found Ridley streaking down the field for a 78-yard touchdown, giving Alabama the 14-0 lead with 8:56 remaining in the opening quarter.

As Alabama's offense went cold, Colorado State began finding success in the second quarter.

CSU (2-2) managed to make the game 17-10 with 2:18 left in the first half.

The score and long drive seemed to wake up Alabama's offense.

Alabama entered the half with a 24-10 lead. Alabama LBs Rashaan Evans (groin), Anfernee Jennings (ankle) and Dylan Moses were all held out of the game on Saturday.

Alabama returns to action Saturday, Sept. 23, with its SEC opener against Vanderbilt in Nashville, Tenn. Colorado State gets a trip to Hawaii next week.
