The Crimson Tide countered CSU's second-quarter surge with a 52-yard touchdown pass from Hurts to Robert Foster with 1:00 left in the half that made it 24-10.
After Alabama missed a 52-yard field goal to open the second quarter, Colorado State drove down the field in 12 plays, setting up a 27-yard field goal that trimmed the Tide lead to 17-3 with 10:34 left in the half. "I expect them to make a play and they did a good job of doing that".
Finding themselves up just a single score with two minutes remaining in the half, Alabama quickly went to work, taking only three plays to add yet another offensive touchdown.
Saban liked Hurts' first two games, but sought improvement from the quarterback and the teammates around him.

Rushing defense: B - Despite allowing CSU quarterback Nick Stevens to score a 5-yard rushing touchdown in the fourth quarter Saturday, the Tide defense was particularly stingy on the ground, holding Rams running back Dalyn Dawkins to 59 yards on 10 carries for the game. On their next possession, the Rams were even better, marching 85 yards in 11 plays and pulling within 17-10 on a 4-yard touchdown pass from Nick Stevens to Warren Jackson.
On the following CSU drive, the Rams possessed the ball at the UA 48-yard line before attempting a deep pass down the right side that found Jones for an interception.
A 46-yard field goal from Andy Pappanastos seemed to signify the rout was on, as Colorado State had just 11 yards of offense in the first quarter, while Bama had produced 216. They make you earn everything, especially offensively.
Passing offense: A - Once again Hurts managed to find success through the air for the second straight game, finishing with 248 yards on 12 of 17 passing and two touchdowns before being pulled in favor of freshman Tua Tagovailoa late in the third quarter. He got that against Colorado State.

Ridley has at least one reception in all 33 games of his Crimson Tide career, which is the third-longest streak in the Bowl Subdivision.
