College football scores 2012 are making headlines as Alabama beat Michigan 41-14 in Saturday game. Here are video highlights
Alabama played their hearts out last night as they completely overwhelmed Michigan in a very important match winning it with a very high margin of 41-14. To be true, when the match began no one expected the team that is playing without many players who had helped it excel in the last season to do so brilliantly.
From the word go they went for offensive and it paid off richly for the team. Though Michigan tried to take a leaf out from their opponents and started attacking Alabama it was not only very late, but also their attack lacked the lethality that was part of Alabama’s.
Beating a top ten team is always difficult and even for 2nd highest ranked team in the tournament it was expected to be a difficult task. But at the end it looked like a cakewalk as Alabama romped home without much of a resistance from their opponents.
Alabama coach Nick Saban is going gaga over the outstanding performance that his young team gave in their opening match of the tournament. He predicts his detractors to wait a little and see how his young boys are able to once again do the magic as they did in the last season. Others cannot dare differ with him as with last night’s performance it seems that the last season hasn’t really ended.
Milliner was over the moon after the win and said, “I think we came out in the first game and established the kind of identity we’re going to have on this team…On defense, we were aggressive. On offense, we came out and attacked.” On the other hand Alabama coach Saban was filled with pride when he said, “This team had a challenge of trying to create an identity for themselves in terms of how they competed and how they played. And I think they took a step in that direction…But, that is something that happens over time and happens with consistency and performance.”
But it will still be too early to write off the eighth ranked Michigan as they have lots of time to come out of the humiliating defeat at the hands of Alabama. But to make a comeback they need to play a better game and not the sort of game they came up with Saturday night.
