12 September 2017, 12:50 | Gina Pena

Alabama only needed two plays to score the first touchdown of the game after returning Fresno State's opening kickoff to the UA 27-yard line.

15 - Alabama has won its last 15 consecutive home openers at Bryant-Denny Stadium, including all 10 under head coach Nick Saban, who is 19-2 all time in home opening games over four stops as a head coach. Alabama's offense only got stronger from there on its way to a 41-10 victory over the Bulldogs. ".He was very efficient throwing the ball".

"I couldn't say what the most hard thing was, because everything they really did, they did well. Hopefully, we'll gain a bit more rhythm in some other areas". After a Cusick punt, the Tide brought Hurts back into the game and added a touchdown late in the half. History has shown the Bulldogs simply can't match talent for talent with teams from the SEC Expect Alabama's offense to come out firing following a somewhat disappointing showing against Florida State. Hurts led the team on the ground with 154 yards and two touchdowns. He hit receivers in tight coverage and made defenders pay with his legs. He ended the game having completed six of nine passes for 64-yards, including a 16-yard touchdown pass to Henry Ruggs III in fourth quarter against the Bulldogs.

- Da'Mari Scott matched his career-high with 171 all-purpose yards as he also had 171 all-purpose yards against Utah in 2015.

Alabama's second touchdown marked personal landmark for one Alabama player.

Womack played at right tackle for the Tide and helped pave the way for an offense that racked up 305 yards rushing and 497 total yards of offense Saturday. A week after only connecting with Calvin Ridley and running backs through the air, he completed throws to four different receivers plus two tight ends. "But at the same time, we've got to not ask players to do things they're not ready to do".

"But it wasn't a flawless game - I wasn't 100 percent (passing), we had some mistakes offensively, special teams and defensively (we) had some mistakes I'm sure", Hurts said.

"He obviously will learn from it, took a sack when he shouldn't take a sack", Saban said.

Saban gave the true freshman a drive in the first half. After a late-season appearance at tailback previous year against Hawaii, Hokit solidified his goal-line rushing role entering this season and made the most of it last week with two touchdowns on four rushing attempts. "Sometimes you can come out slow in games like these, and we just wanted to come out fast".

In Fayetteville, Ark., Darius Anderson ran for a career-high 106 yards and a touchdown and Texas Christian's defense dominated once again in a victory over Arkansas (1-1). With 231 yards of total offense in the first half, Hurts surpassed 4,000 yards of total offense in his Alabama career.

"He did a great job today. Like I said, defensively we beat ourselves with the minor mistakes that we had". Running back Josh Jacobs, who was expected to be a key contributor, has missed both games this season due to a lingering hamstring injury.

Alabama converted on a pair of field goals between the third and fourth quarters to take a 34-3 lead.

"It wasn't a flawless game", Hurts said. We had some mistakes offensively.We want to be the best we can be. "It's not about personal stats, about (any single) individual, it's about playing to the standard".
