next, the home opener on espn2. and that visit to oxford. the last couple times, rebels have gotten them. that's a game on the 17th. and then, saban's alma mater, kentucky. back-to-back road games against arkansas and tennessee. visit lsu. circle that one, november 5th, though, the tigers a little bit deflated already, with a loss. >> kirk: before we watched any games being played, i had alabama winning the west and getting to atlanta, winning the s.e.c. championship and getting into the playoff. actually getting to the national title. you look at that schedule, after what we've watched this -- it's only week one, but after what we've watched -- i mean, they -- they look really good. they look like they're going to just kind of continue to take off where they were last year and potentially -- i think they're going to be as good, if not better defensively, because i they they're going to be faster. i think some of the secondary guys are a year older and wiser.
jalen hurts is potentially an x factor, with what he can do in running this offense. his ability to throw and run. they have four running backs that they can use. the line's only going to get better week after week. they're going to be a tough out. >> chris: burnett takes a turn at punt returner. he's got a little room. that's out near midfield. what do you make of the s.e.c.? there were certainly some lows. >> kirk: well, arkansas came back and won that, by a point. >> chris: mississippi state missing that chip shot at the end. >> kirk: georgia, that's a great win over north carolina. wisconsin outplayed lsu most of that game and deserved to win. west virginia ends up beating missouri. florida with a win. a&m in overtime that was a great win over ucla. it's not -- that doesn't include the tennessee/appalachian state gait game on thursday night, which
wasn't a strong performance by the s.e.c. >> chris: auburn's defense doing a strong job against clemson, but still down by ten against the clemson tigers. and then you have ole miss against florida state, underdogs the game monday. usc with a toughest rated schedule in the country, says the fpi. we're going to see them up on the farm in palo alto. the conference opener. they play the three toughest teams from the north division. two of them on the road. that is a rough, rough road. and the home finale against notre dame. >> kirk: when you include alabama in the nine games they play in the pac-12, they're going to end up playing one of the toughest schedules in the country. that's why it was so important, chris, to come into this game, for clay helton to get his team to hit some adversity and fight through it. not let this game get away g you because there's so much more for them to accomplish this year than just playing alabama and
they missed out on that opportunity after competing early in the game, obviously, this thing has gotten away. >> chris: dominique davis gets a turn. this will not be, apparently, the worst loss in usc history. that was back in '66, a 51-0 loss to notre dame, but it is one of the worst, and mercifully, for them, it's in the final minute. the ford wrapup coming up after the game with cassidy hubhubbar. what's the headline going to be, hurts so good, for the offensive line? or all about the defense? >> kirk: i would think you got to talk about the freshman quarterback, i mean, the defense is a staple and they looked great tonight, but jalen hurts, and some of the plays that he came up with, probably got to be a big story, don't you think? >> chris: quarterback keeper. and darnold dives ahead. s.e.c., or, usc struck first and
then, the s.e.c. and alabama punched back in a big way. saban will still have work to do, he'll tell you, lots of improvement is needed, but jalen hurts, his debut, the true freshman, spectacular. and lane kiffin calling plays against his former school, enjoyed just about every minute of this. 52-6, the final in arlington.
>> chris: big debut for jalen hurts. tide defense holding the trojans to just 194 yards. let's get saban's reaction down with samantha. >> samantha: coach, big night for your freshman quarterback that didn't even start the game. so, do you think jalen did enough tonight to earn that role, to be the guy for you? >> well, you know, he did a nice job tonight. i'm not sure we don't have a couple guys that can play quarterback, and i said, whatever the decision we made tonight was for now, so, it's for now.
it was for now. we started another guy, he come in and played well. you know, if we can build with that, then we'll do that. but i think the focus for our team, our quarterbacks and everybody else, needs to be on improvement. i thought we played sloppy at times, made a lot of big plays, but we have to be more consistent in our execution. especially on offense. so, we got a lot of work to do. >> samantha: i know at halftime you talked to me about blocking. is that the main concern offensively? >> we didn't get started very well. we couldn't run the ball. we didn't control the line of scrimmage in the beginning of the game. one first down in the first quarter. so, you know, i know it looks like, 52-6, everybody's happy, i'm happy we won the game. i think southern cal has a good team. but i also think we have a lot of work to do. >> samantha: bama fans are happy to hear that. coach, congratulations. you can enjoy it a little bit, though. >> chris: we knew he'd be a tough grader. 12 yards given up after the first quarter. yes, they got off to a slow
start. ran for 242, throwing for 223. >> kirk: they were sloppy tonight. a lot of work to do. clean some things up. they won 52-6, but in reality, first game, they were slow out of the gate. trying to figure out if blake barnett was going be the guy. they finally went to hurts and took advantage of some opportunities. the game flipped. and just like that, went from being a close game, sc playing with some passion, to alabama taking control of the game up 17-3 and really that was it. >> chris: the reason why saban is guarded, it was one game. we're not sure what sc was going to be. they lost six games a year ago. they had high hopes. this may not look -- >> kirk: he's going to down play it, of course. and he's got ole miss in two weeks. a team that he's lost to two straight years. that's the laser focus right now. >> chris: alabama a little slow out of the gate and then began throwing hay makers and it was pretty much all over very, very
early in the third quarter. tide looking very much like a number one-ranked team. tonight's game here was produced by bill minnow. next saturday, saturday night football will be at the bristol motor speedway, as virginia tech takes on tennessee. that's a wrap for now, but the ford wrapup show is coming up next, so, let's go to cassidy hubbarth right now for that. thanks, chris. welcome to the ford wrapup. the 2016 college football season certainly knows how to make a good first impression. and if you are into upsets, then, it's certainly living up to the title as the greatest opening weekend ever. ever ever? ever ever. that is, unless, you're an lsu fan. brandon harris, with one of his two interceptions. this one, in the final minute. and to make matters worse -- oh. josh bouta getting ejected

action news delaware valleys leading news program with metrologist melissa magee, jeff skversky and walter perez. ♪ preparations underway at the jersey shore as hermine closes in on the coast. those who are staying are fortifying their homes and businesses, many of those who are leaving have already done so packing up their stuff and hitting the roads heavy winds and high waves are what is to come i'm walter perez and the big story is hermine pushing up
the atlantic coast with a swipe at the jersey shore and 6abc over atlantic city you can see the angry waves and winds strong enough to shake our camera but 24 hours from now it will likely look worse and winds could tomorrow 60 miles per hour with driving range and flooding across the area and team coverage up and down the coast and we are in ocean city new jersey and bob brooks in rehoboth and adam joseph and melissa magee are tracking the path and strength of the storm and where we begin with melissa. >> walter this is a storm we are tracking through the rest of our holiday weekend and early next week, the very latest with hermine, it's off the coast of the carolinas and moved off the coast earlier today and now it's sitting in the open waters of the atlantic here. you notice the heaviest precipitation is also off shore but the winds right now sustained at 70 miles per hour. something to keep in mind as this is out over the atlantic is that it is entering the gulf
stream, the current water temperature is 85 degrees so we do expect some strengthening and intensification with the storm as we get into the second half of our holiday weekend into the day on monday. the latest stats have it at 235 east of norfolk virginia and majority of the day this is jogging due east and now starting to see the turn to the north and east but the national hurricane center still feels like this will take that northwesterly left hook as we get into late sunday and into monday and at that point we do expect this to strengthen to hurricane status with winds at 75 miles per hour. the problem however it sits and spins and meanders in monday, tuesday and wednesday of next week. so we have to take precaution with a tropical storm warning sea side heights to cape may and delaware and delaware beach as well and tropical conditions and
at the coast we will see the worst of the storm and bring in metrologist adam joseph with the latest on that. not flooding because of a driving rain which you typically get with tropical-type features it's the storm surge and the rounds of high tide with this. dangerous flooding due to waves near 15 feet that will really start to swell up as we get into sunday and monday and a storm surge now expected 3-5 feet above the ground meaning standing at the water's end expect a rise in that water by 3-5 feet during the times of high tide. right now this is showing the circulation with the wave heights, again didn't look bad today and chop but not terrific and that is 30 foot swells starting to develop and pivots to the west and the wall of water as the storm moves to the north and west will move with it and what is when the worst of the flooding is expected. so minor flooding with the present high tide right now. sunday morning it goes to moderate, 10-11 but the two high
tides of major concern with major flooding will be on sunday night 10-11 p.m. monday morning 10:30 to 11:30 and backs off as the storm weakens monday night. take away at the shore life threatening flooding and direct quotes from the national hurricane center move those cars to high ground, expect power outages of tropical storm force and obey local authorities if they end up doing mandatory evacuations during the day tomorrow and metrologist melissa magee comes back she will talk about inland locations that is not going to be that bad of a weekend. >> love to keep an eye on it for sure and thank you and move on to the jersey shore and christie is live in ocean city, christie. >> walter on a tip saturday night particularly labor day weekend this boardwalk would be parked with people instead it
looks much like a ghost town and no mandatory evacuation here but the ocean is closed to swimmers. right now we have the ocean closed. not letting anyone due to the swim of the tropical storm/hurricane. >> the winds are blustery and the waves rocky and hermine is coming, have you guys spotted anyone in the water? >> little kids bringing boogie boards out. >> rapid response team is on call for water rescue ahead of the storm, so far there have been none. >> little better. >> i disagree and rough and coming from the north, we are surprised but yes i think high tide is going to be bad. >> the impact will be felt sunday into monday meaning. >> church and i'm out of here. >> how were you originally >> until monday. >> last unofficial weekend of summer and typically brings 10 100,000 people to the area. >> day trippers do not come and
people who rented say they will leave early friday and not stay friday and saturday and people coming saturday say they will wait until monday but we will rebound. >> it was packed before the day so in other words no so we managed to empty it out. >> businesses like the hardware bare the storms of before. >> 62 we had five tides and this is sandy. >> while there is no mandatory evacuation they want residents to be smart and stay out of the water. now the ocean remains closed to similarers for the remainder of the holiday weekend and seen people walking past us on the boardwalk heading to the beach and that is okay, you can watch on the sand but do not go in the water, reporting live in ocean city christie with action six news walter. >> move down the shore to rehoboth and bob brooks and bob many people down there heading out of town early.
>> walter good evening that is right, a lot of people not even sticking around to see how this plays out and we have been down here all day and throughout we have seen the intensity get stronger and wednesdays pick up and rains at certain point and of course the storm surge, the ocean, really coming closer into the boardwalk here. the waves you can see them crashing out there, just getting big and that has prompted officials down here as well to shut the beach down. as hermine gets closer the waves higher crashing with more force, the winds stronger, businesses along the rehoboth boardwalk are beginning to sand bag the doors and the family is h the weekend. >> up in the room all day. >> wanted to come out and see the growing waves but don't plan on staying out long. >> with the kids we will head in a while. >> beach patrol shut things down. >> not allowing any swimming and not allowing anybody to go down
on to the beach. >> but once their shift ended at 5:30 people went out to the end of the water and that is something beach patrol doesn't like to see. >> all it takes is a wave to knock a little kid down and i've seen it and get sucked out like an escalator and that cost them their life. >> sussex officials asking everyone to take the storm seriously. >> we need to be prepared for. we need to you know we need to be making preparations for the possibility of a long duration event one in which we may see a lot of low lying communities flooded. >> with the path uncertain many people could be seen stuck in traffic getting out of town, for those who stay you are being told to avoid the water. >> it's understandable that people have a curiosity with nature especially when it gets like this but they need to have a very healthy respect for nature. >> back out live another look at those waves out there man they are just getting bigger by the moment and again the biggest
message from officials down here is just avoid the beach altogether during the day it was closed but after beach patrol shut things down people went out there. i did see little kids going right up to that water and that is what beach patrol doesn't want to see, live at rehoboth six bob brooks 6abc action news walter. >> we will continue to follow the track of hermine through the night an and tune in to 6abc at 6:00 a.m. and metrologist chris will have the models and hall and han will anchor the coverage of the storm and begins at 6:00 a.m. only on 6abc. a bomb shell today from the eagles front office after just one season and one week before the season opener quarterback sam bradford has been trades to the minnesota vikings and action news sports director ducis rodgers told us what the birds got in return. >> our plan wasn't to trade sam
