This Week in Colleg Football: Vol 7 – How do you win by 42 points and say that team played with class? Alabama displayed class and somewhat of a conscious when they beat Georgia State by only 45-3 this past weekend.  The reason for this observation is you have to consider they were favored by 55 points with the over/under was 59 points, and the Tide stepped off the gas in the third quarter and did not score the rest of the game.  Crimson Tide HC Nick Saban pulled QB AJ McCarron after McCarron was nearly perfect, going 15 for 16 for 166 yards and 4 touchdowns, but his back up, Jr. QB Blake Sims was almost as flawless going 14 for 18 for 130 yards and a TD.  The Tide had 7 different runners have at least one carry, as they rushed for 181 yards on 30 carries and a TD.  Defensively they held Georgia State to 175 total yards (160 yards passing and 15 rushing) and got one interception. Alabama could have done what Louisville, Florida State and others did two weeks ago and win by 70, instead
