Alabama takes win at opener over Virginia Tech
Alabama took a 35-10 win over Virginia Tech on Saturday night’s season opening game.
Though Alabama’s offensive line was unsteady, thanks to Vinnie Sunseri and Christion Jones, the team pulled through with winning their opener, CBS Sports reported.
Sunseri, the team’s safety, scored 21 points, including a touchdown after intercepting a play, while Jones made a 94-yard kickoff and a 72-yard punt return.
Despite the win, Alabama head coach Nick Saban believes that the offensive line needs more work, for future games.
“We have too good of skilled players not to give them more opportunities to make plays in the game,” Saban told CBS Sports. “I’m not going to single out young guys. I think the entire group needs to do a better job.”
Virginia Tech’s head coach Frank Beamer spoke about the school’s team performance in the game.
“The points that we gave them, that shouldn’t happen in a ballgame,” Virginia Tech’s head coach Frank Beamer said to AL.com. “Those were critical there. But I firmly believe that what was wrong tonight can be corrected and we can be a good football team.”
