hurt you around the edge, sets up the blockers and goes inside. the guy refuses to go down. catches the ball on the extreme pass well and literally such a weapon for alabama. they do not have a julio jones but very balanced. one of the weapons no one talks about is michael williams, their tight end, number 89. >> verne: three catch tonight and as a blocker very effective. there's mccarron fires to rich aren'tson and trent richardson's inside the 40 yard line before being tackled by jonathan bostic. >> gary: mccarron just looks comfortable out there. this is not an easy place to play but he does not appear at all he's nervous or has happy feet just looks like what nick saban thought about him last year he's the real deal and the
next heir to play quarterback for alabama. >> verne: and in saban's world, high praise is he manages the game well. >> gary: he does. >> verne: yep. that's how saban referred to his effort last week. disciplined effort. third down at the 35 and let's check in back in new york once again here's tim. >> verne, case mccoy and david ash split time between iowa state and this is ash finding jackson shipley for the touchdown and texas handles iowa state and gets revenge for last year's loss, 27-14. back to you. >> verne: thank you, tim. third down, 3. here the 11th play of the drive. nick saban turns 60 at the end of the this month. how about that.
richardson. >> gary: look at that. >> verne: very good night. touchdown. >> gary: oh, my. >> gary: i thought maybe jaye howard had a chance for him but i tell you, josh evans number 24 had no idea what he was coming up to tackle. he was coming up full speed and a train passed him full speed. >> verne: mccarron will hold. carson tinker snaps it back. richardson a 5-yard touchdown run tonight and tacked on 36 on that one. >> gary: i tell you, warmack did a good job on the play. offensive line blocks down, down and warmack makes the block inside and a delay draw and watch warmack, oh, look at that.
fits exactly with the linebacker and then bam, he's supposed to be a big back and a first down back and he's a game-breaking back also. >> verne: he's got 155 yards on the ground tonight. ♪ well, that kickin' coney's gonna smack you right ♪ ♪ punch you in the mouth, don't put up a fight ♪ ♪ hot crispy onions from way out west ♪ ♪ dog nabbit' hot dabbit that chili's the best ♪ ♪ cool your sizzle with a bacon & blue ♪ ♪ i done reachin' for my hatchet, let's split it in two ♪ ♪ mean blue cheese, you say "please please please" ♪ ♪ that blt'll bring ya to your knees ♪ [ male announcer ] the new kickin' coney and bacon & blue dog. giddy up. get your premium beef hot dog on for just a dollar ninety-nine. this is how you sonic.
geico. cadillac. and by rage. >> verne: aerial cover of the sec on cbs sports provided by southwest airlines. the place is starting to empty out now as alabama as extended its lead to 21. 31-10. trent richardson, i think we should reopen the heisman conversation. >> gary: no doubt. if they go undefeated and he's footing numbers like this undefeated team the two quarterback and a running back with the south carolina loss you might have to look at this guy here in the middle of it. >> verne: played two years behind a heisman winner, mark ingram. and really a young man delightful in conversation. here's the quick taken by solomon patton.
driven out of bounds. monday the only thing these two girls have in common is they're broke. see why "two broke girls" is tv's number one new show after "how i met your mother." only, cbs. the intent of alabama was to negate the running game and goodness have they done that. demps with three carries for four yards. rainey fewer than that. first down 10. jeff driskel on in place of the injured john brantley and sacked by ed stinson, number 49. >> gary: i think florida has to think about next week. they need to get their quarterback ready for lsu and
see chapman limping off and they'll go on the road and this will likely be their quarterback for lsu and they need some positive for him in the rest theft game. easy throws. >> verne: there's one. and from the 36 yard line, jordan reed. that's just a really difficult schedule facing the gators. it was with brantley in there and alabama tonight. first time in history they have played back to back regular season games against two top three teams. lsu a big win over kentucky today. >> gary: and back to back to back. you played three national champions from the s.e.c., b alabama, lsu and south carolina. >> verne: personal foul. face mask on the tackle and take another look at the end of play.
oh, yeah. midfield at the 49. driskel, nick gentry this time, number 58. >> gary: there's a guy i never talk enough about. nick gentry every time i watch him play and i go why didn't you mention number 58. he's a gamer. he's not a super star but makes plays throughout the whole game. >> verne: and was an important part of one of the key plays tonight and it led to the interception by upshaw and the subsequent return for a t.d. five sacks now for the crimson tide. kirkpatrick is coming and a fumble taken by alabama. >> gary: oh, my goodness. >> verne: yep.
nico johnson number 35. so the crimson tide is surging now. >> gary: yeah, this is -- i thought florida might have a chance to win this game if they did everything right and dempson-rainey played in the game and the worse happened and it gets kicked to nico johnson. everything's gone wrong. the first play and quarterback injured and no running games they still have to play october and the rest of the schedule. horsepower luxury car with a manual transmission? because there are those who still believe in the power of a firm handshake. the cadillac cts-v. manual or automatic, that's entirely up to you.

the power to make your world come alive. only on at&t. >> verne: well, here's an as-if addition to the game as if they needed another injury the florida gators with the end of the play with driskel. >> gary: he got didn't he? is that upshaw again >> verne: he might have been and he's on the bench getting tape. let's go to tracy. >> tracy: they're taping up his left ankle and no one is warming up on the sideline and we expect him to finish this one out. >> verne: thank you. look at the rushing yards
tonight. wow. richardson, wildcat. >> gary: first of the year. >> verne: yes. josh g. willis. first down. >> gary: you know what this kind of reminds me of now is how nick saban used mark ingram a couple years back when he won his heisman against south carolina. remember that? he had all those carries. the team was close to 250 yards in that football game and i think saban now is showing the rest of the people especially lsu be ready for this too by the way. remember, we got this too. >> verne: richardson's career high now with 167 earlier against north texas earlier in year. marquis maze and the direct snap to richardson. he adds to the total.
>> gary: do you want to go back to the one play they think kind of broke this thing open in the second half for alabama. the third and 9 throw from mccarron to maze on the sideline. that was probably the only pressure packed play for mccarron the whole football game and he came through. >> verne: the starting offensive line still in there. >> gary: oh, yeah, you're not taking them out as long as number 3's in there. >> verne: mccarron lined up wide to the top of the screen and the wildcat again and marquis maze. here's richardson. >> gary: pretty impressive isn't it? >> verne: is it really, really is. >> gary: i think this is probably going to be the last series for richardson in the football game and there's the last carry. >> verne: there you go.
>> gary: nicely done there by nick saban. >> verne: a career high 189 yards on 20 carries. >> gary: the career high. >> verne: eddie lacy has taken his place. lacy with a career high and season high of 162 and look at him, touchdown, alabama. and you said two weeks ago thunder and thunder. >> gary: thunder and thunder. you can't talk enough about how -- one of the things that will muschamp told us and i think he learned it from nick saban. we recruit great players and we coach hard if you're not ready you don't come to alabama or florida. i've been to those practices. it's tough.

>>: alabama 38-10 that's swamp has been drained of fans tonight. now time for the play of the game presented by napa auto parts with the call here's eli gold of the alabama radio network. >> lee in the shotgun, wanders to either side, brantley has time and now breaks down and throws, intercepted, bama. courtney upshaw down the sideline, 20, 15, 10, 5, 48 yards on the pick six. thank you, very much. touchdown, alabama! >> verne: thank you, very much, eli gold. good to hear your voice on the broadcast. >> gary: a little bit of an inside job from last week. >> verne: it was last week. we introduced eli and he never made air. he's an old, dear friend. a very treasured personality in
the state of alabama. and so 38-10 here with 8:45 to go. case foster will kick it off. solomon patton. fumbled again. >> gary: yep. >> verne: florida got it. >> gary: we thought perhaps doing our homework before the game that kickoffs could be an important part of this football game. we thought we were right until the quarterback went down. >> verne: exactly.
and look at this. richardson and lacy, 213 and demps and rainey, 25 yards. >> gary: last year in the sec championship 629 yards rushing by alabama, 172 yards running by florida. can't win. >> verne: here's rainey. d and another visit with tim brando. >> a big night for wisconsin. all wisconsin. the 15-yard touchdown run the fourth of the night and 30 carries, 151 yards that's badgers roll and notre dame doing the same to purdue. by the way, verne, i call eli trouble up turn four gold. back to you. [laughter] >> verne: a little nascar reference to eli gold. you bet, tim. second down under 8:00 to go. handoff right side. >> gary: verne, i feel a little
bad. when that fumble play at the end of the half i go who, florida caught a big break there and if you remember ironically it might be the break of the year for florida because as in no quarterback. it could be the worse break of all time. something you think you catch a break on ironically you lose your only veteran quarterback. >> verne: and brantley -- >> gary: changes the whole dynamic. >> verne: for the season, yes, a absolu absolutely. >> gary: if he's out for any extended period of time it will. >> verne: number 49 makes the tackle. >> gary: you wonder what charlie weis will do. i can't win with this so i'll go to a wildcat with trey burton and try to come up with something different next week. >> verne: now charlie weis known
for his fiery personality and very interesting, we've enjoyed chatting with him the last couple of weeks and he said i'm -- i coach hard during the week but i'm very calm during the game. we saw that with john brantley and sadly gary said it looks like brantley's going to be out for a while and weis said the his biggest challenge was to instill confidence in driskel. >> gary: kirby smart recruited him to alabama. boy, discouraging. it's going to be discouraging and will muschamp will have a job in front of him. he doesn't have a lot of head coaching experience he'll have to fall back on everything he's learned on his career to handle the situation arising right now to be the head coach for the
florida gators. >> verne: the sophomore is in at running back now. goes right. and look at him power his way out across the 35. 36. >> gary: got to say something about d.j. fluker the big right tackle for alabama. florida felt they could attack fluker and believed he wasn't quick enough. now i've watched him all game, he's handled the job. he may not be at the level you want as a number one draft pick but he's greatly improved from where he was last year and handled the florida speed all night tonight. >> verne: second down now and under 6:00 to play. breaks the tackle, first down, alabama. what's in front of alabama now.
>> gary: who do they lose to, right? you can't believe vanderbilt's going to beat them. >> verne: i don't think. >> gary: ole miss is not up to it. now tennessee do they have hunter back? maybe. and they got the the other they're not losing that one. >> verne: and what's the game. >> gary: the one with lsu. that might be on their schedule until the last game. how about the at auburn game again. that thing always turns out funny. >> verne: yes, it does and jason hunter from tennessee is out for the year so they're going to miss him. it's like flying with one wing. >> gary: right. >> verne: phillip sims is in at quarterback replacing mccarron and the entire offensive line left and there's a decent contingent of alabama fans behind the crimson tide bench and none of them have left i promise you >> gary: and to highlight the job by the offensive line they've produced running yards, 232 but also remember this, no
sackses in this football game. not one sack given up by this alabama football team. second down. not this time. fowler dropped all the way back to the 40. there's john michael boswell is in there and there's barrett jones on the right. barrett jones a delightful, calls himself a nerd. plays the violin. >> gary: he's a nerd first-round draft pick >> verne: yes, he is and a wonderful young man. his brother is on the field, a freshman and harrison jones they got on the field together last week and in the huddle harrison said what are you doing here he said coach put me in and he said get the guy over there.
fowler. quanjo and here's mccarron. how do you assess his night. >> gary: everything the coaches said about him he's come through. he hasn't disappointed them all and i think alabama fans can rest easy they have a quarterback. he may not play every game but he has the potential to be a winning quarterback and take them to where they want to go. that's the only one play. sec championship and the winner of that game usually plays for the national championship. >> verne: robert clark if not call for the fair catch and
kirkpatrick takes him down. 40-yard punt nothing on the return and clark lids to the bench and the player of the game, 181 yards, two touchdowns on the ground and also caught a couple and he just continues to impress. he had a modest start to the season against kansas state. >> gary: now i know you don't do this any more but you got to wonder if alabama doesn't take one period every day now at practice and prepare for lsu. >> verne: you think. >> gary: i don't see how they lose to those teams. >> verne: mike gillislee number 23 and jeff driskel is back on the field having had his ankle taped. longest run of the game the 31-yard scamper. nice pass complete to reed and then here's where he went down,
tweaked his ankle and it was wrapped and he's back on the field. final 2:15 to go. on the 33. freshman linebacker out of ohio is the tackle. a quick reference to the georgia bulldogs. >> gary: they won today. and they're alive. beat south carolina and that's a team they needed to lose because they lost to them. >> verne: lost their first two of the season, boise state and south carolina. >> gary: south carolina still has a tie-breaker but -- >> verne: yep. >> gary: life. >> verne: third down.
gillislee. fourth down. that's vinnie sunserri and his brother the starting quarterback for pittsburgh made the start last night and their dad is an assistant coach on the staff, sal sunserri and ironically sal sunserri was on the staff at louisiana state in 2000 and chose to depart and created the opening ultimately filled by will muschamp. connect the dots. let's update you now on the east. 2-1, florida, south carolina and georgia, vandy, 1-1, tennessee,
0-1. out of conference win today. >> gary: i like georgia. i really do. if i had to pick a team now consider brantley's injury if it's as serious as it appears i think georgia's in the driver's seattle. >> verne: driver's seat? do you ya? >> gary: well, they can crash. >> verne: 40 guys turning left. >> gary: well, after the first play of seven points and then the drop pass over to the outside that's been the end of it. >> verne: here's phillip sims takes a knee. 38-10. >> gary: there's nothing tougher than to watch the visiting team take a knee on your field. >> verne: long night will get even longer for will muschamp and the florida gators. they drop to 4-1 and lose for
the eighth time in the swamp to the alabama crimson tide. the last one here against alabama in 2006 and they also won once in '91. nick saban now 3-1 in the swamp. will muschamp first meeting as a head coach against the man who gave him a huge continue at lsu. a.j. mccarron managed the game well. trent richardson rushed for 181. alabama rolls. 38-10. so for gary danielson and tracy wolfson i'm verne lundquist. so long from gainesville with
