The No. 2 Crimson Tide scored on drives of 82, 61 and 80 yards against the top-ranked and undefeated Irish in its first three drives of the game. They added a 71-yard scoring drive with 31 seconds left in the half to take a dominating 28-0 lead.
One of the biggest hits of the game on Alabama’s quarterback A.J. McCarron came from his own teammate Barrett Jones.
The two teammates disagreed on a play call and had to call a timeout to get it cleared up. McCarron got in his lineman’s face and Jones pushed him some three yards back, a feat that Notre Dame could never do throughout the game.
Notre Dame couldn’t stop Alabama’s running game. Crimson Tide runners Eddie Lacy and T.J. Yeldon both ran for more than 100 yards.
Alabama has now won three national titles in the last four years, which had some calling them a dynasty.
“You can call us whatever you want but this is was a total team effort,” McCarron said after the game.
