TUSCALOOSA, Ala. Saucony Grid 9000 Mint . -- It was a sputtering, inconsistent, and rather mundane performance for No. 1 Alabama. Or at least, thats how it seemed a week after a big-game roller coaster ride. AJ McCarron passed for 258 yards and threw a 30-yard touchdown to DeAndrew White in the fourth quarter to lift Alabama to a 31-6 victory over Colorado State on Saturday night. Two fourth-quarter touchdowns, one on special teams and another on fourth down, helped keep the final score from being close for the Tide (3-0). "I felt like as a whole, we didnt really execute to our full abilities," Alabama linebacker C.J. Mosley said. "Thats not an SEC opponent that we just played and the win really wasnt what it should have been. So I felt like we kind of got away with a win. We didnt dominate that win." Offensive lineman Kellen Williams described the postgame mood as "pretty sombre," even after the 25-point win. Kenyan Drake set up one touchdown with a blocked punt returned 15 yards by Dillon Lee and scored on a 3-yard touchdown run for the Tide, which led just 17-6 heading to the fourth. Alabama managed only one offensive touchdown and no third-down conversions in the first three quarters a week after winning a 49-42 shootout over Texas A&M. Coached by former Tide offensive co-ordinator Jim McElwain, the Rams (1-3) nursed hopes for a monumental upset into the fourth quarter before allowing two touchdowns. Trey DePriest stripped the ball from quarterback Garrett Grayson and recovered the fumble early in the quarter. "We challenged our guys to come in here and go toe-to-toe," said McElwain, who was part of two Tide national championship teams from 2008-11. "I think the guys on the other sideline have earned some respect for Colorado State Rams and how hard we played the game." The next play after the fumble, McCarron laced a perfect strike to White in the end zone and restless Alabama fans had something to cheer about. The Tide was without several key players, including receivers Amari Cooper (toe) and Kevin Norwood, guard Anthony Steen (headache), cornerback Deion Belue (turf toe) and safety Jarrick Williams (eye). This was a sandwich game between Southeastern Conference showdowns, and the nearly 40-point favourites played like it offensively. No. 21 Mississippi visits Bryant-Denny Stadium next week. McCarron completed 20 of 26 passes but also was intercepted on an ill-advised throw. T.J. Yeldon ran seven times for 49 yards while Christion Jones caught nine passes for 90 yards. Yeldon was held out of the first quarter after getting flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct against Texas A&M. He apologized in a statement Monday for making the "money" and double throat slash gestures after a touchdown. He had a 38-yard run on his first carry midway through the second quarter but the running game produced only 66 yards on 21 carries. That was the fewest rushing yards by the Tide since South Carolina held them to 36 yards on Oct. 9, 2010. "Offensively, we couldnt run the ball with any consistency or effectiveness," Alabama coach Nick Saban said. "Even though we did a pretty good job passing, it had to be four or five times that we moved the ball down the field and got just outside the red zone, and we had something happen like throw an interception, miss a field goal, make a field goal, get sacked. Just too many negative plays." Greyson completed 24 of 38 passes for 228 yards for the Rams, who managed just 51 yards on the ground. Rashard Higgins had seven catches for 71 yards and Joe Hansley gained 82 on six receptions. Alabama failed on all six third-down attempts through three quarters and finished 2 of 10. The Tide outgained Colorado State 338-279 in total yards after running up 568 yards a week ago. Alabama continued to find other ways to score. Lees return early in the second quarter was the Tides fifth non-offensive touchdown. Alabama backup quarterback Blake Sims hit Chris Black for a 14-yard touchdown pass to add to the lead with 1:13 left. It was Blacks first career catch. McCarron was in for most of the series against a team led by his former position coach and Saban assistant. McElwains Rams didnt reach Alabama territory until midway through the third quarter and then did it two straight drives. The Tide defence did come up with stops both times. Jared Roberts kicked field goals of 45 and 31 yards to cut the Tides lead to 17-6. Landon Collins pulled Grayson down on a keeper on third down to force the second kick.

Barkley was not named in either Sam Allardyce or Gareth Southgates England squads for the 2018 World Cup Qualifiers against Slovakia, Malta and Slovenia.The 22-year-olds performances at Everton have also come under scrutiny and he was dropped for the 1-1 draw with Manchester City in October. He obviously has had it really good for two years since Roberto Martinez came here and saw him as the focal point of his team, Barry, 35, told Sky Sports.But being left out of the England squad and dropped at Everton for the first time, thats the time you need to have a little word with him to keep him going.When things are going well its easy to keep going, so Ross needed a few words from a few of the experienced players to keep his head up at a time like this.While Barkley has had an inconsistent start to the season, Barry has impressed for the Toffees, with manager Ronald Koeman recently calling him the best player he has managed.Speaking ahead of Evertons Super Sunday clash with West Ham, live on Sky Sports, Barry says there are no hiding places under Koeman. Everton were beaten 2-1 by Burnley last time out He is making things really clear, players know exactly what they are doing at the start of the week and there is a clear structure, he said.There are no hidding places. Saucony NÅ‘i FutócipÅ‘. If you are not reaching the levels you will get found out. Hes not messed about, he has told players how it is.If he is thinking something and players are not doing it he is letting them know. For me thats all a player wants, what a manager is thinking, nothing being hidden.Having started the season with four wins from their opening five Premier League matches, Evertons form has dipped lately.The Toffees have not won since September 17, and Barry is eager to snap the barren run against the Hammers.Its not a fantastic start because there are a couple of games where we would have liked to have picked up points and we didnt, he said. When you are on a run of games in the Premier League it only takes one game sometimes to give a team a little bit of self-doubt, and we got affected a bit when we ended that runBut at the same time thats what we are looking to get back on. Its a huge game against West Ham in front of our own fans for the first time in a while, if we can get three point thats the sort of run we want to start again.Its times like this experienced players like myself need to keep going and reassuring the boys we are good team and the quicker we get back to winning ways the better for everyone.You can watch Premier League football, Englands tour of Bangladesh and lots more on Sky Sports.
