MIAMI, FL (WSFA) -
Football players for the #2 ranked Alabama Crimson Tide ran onto the field at Sun Life Stadium in Miami and thoroughly dominated their opponent, the #1 ranked Notre Dame Fighting Irish, in the first half of the game.
At the half, Coach Nick Saban and his team of athletes denied the Irish a single trip to the end zone, all while racking up 28 points of their own.
"I think we played well offensively. We're controlling the line of scrimmage. We're running the ball and we've got good balance and that's what we want to have," Saban said at the half. "Defensively we're doing a pretty good job. They've hit a couple of plays on us, but we've just got to play 60 minutes in the game. This game's not over and our players got to understand that."
The Tide's Eddie Lacy was the first to put numbers on the board via a 20 yard play into the end zone. The scoring drive was five plays for 82 yards. It took 2:57 seconds to complete.
Lacy's touchdown was only the third rushing TD the undefeated Notre Dame team has allowed all season. Lacy's score is also notable in that it was the earliest opening score in the national championship game since Ohio's Ted Ginn returned the opening kickoff for a score playing against Florida in 2007.
Alabama then jumped out to a 14-0 lead with a strong running attack. Quarterback AJ McCarron put up a three yard touchdown pass. The score would be the last for the first quarter.
The Tide continued to dominate in the second quarter rolling up its third unanswered touchdown via a one year TD from T.J. Yeldon.
The Notre Dame defense fought but was unable to stop the rolling Tide.
The Tide's fourth touchdown, a pass from McCarron to Lacy, put the score at 28-0 shortly before halftime, the crowd loudly cheering "SEC".
