Alabama tacked on its third win of the season before starting Southeastern Conference action.
The Crimson Tide got a 63-7 victory over Louisiana-Monroe, despite its offense going stale in the first quarter.
Alabama had a 35-7 lead at halftime, but it scored 21 points off its defense and special teams. Bill O’Brien had two offensive touchdown drives, including one before halftime. Alabama needs to grow in some more areas, but it developed a few things of dominant football against the Warhawks. The Tide now hosts Vanderbilt on Saturday at 6:30 p.m. CT.
Below are the grades in six areas of Alabama’s performance versus ULM.
