It took a while for the Crimson Tide's execution to match their zeal—they led just 14--7 at halftime—but touchdown runs of 56 and two yards by 6'3", 242-pound junior Derrick Henry in the third quarter opened up a 21-point lead. Bama held Badgers rushers to 40 yards on 21 carries and won 35--17.

The wobbly strike to Mathews (inset) came from freshman Tanner Mangum, who took over after star QB Taysom Hill broke his right foot. (Hill is out for the season.) Mangum completed 7 of 11 passes for 111 yards. PHOTODAVID G.
