Alabama 14, Virginia Tech 0--End of 1st quarter

Summary

Virginia Tech got the ball to start the game and a lackluster three-and-out forced a punt fro AJ Hughes. Hughes booted a decent punt, but Christion Jones returned it 72 yards for a touchdown, putting Alabama up 7-0 before AJ McCarron even took the field. The Hokies moved the ball for a first down on the next possession, but had to punt again. The defense's first outing ended with a solid tackle-for-loss by Jack Tyler on 3 and 1 to force an Alabama punt.

Alabama's T.J. Yeldon from three yards out after a 5-minute 49 yard drive to put Alabama up with 1:48 to play in the first quarter. After the ensuing kickoff, Trey Edmunds took the ball 77 yards from scrimmage for a touchdown to cut the lead in half.
