No. 1 Alabama rolls past Georgia State, 45-3

(Continued)

Alabama scored three touchdowns in the first quarter, capping it with DeAndrew White's one-handed grab for an 11-yard scoring catch one play after the Tide recovered a fumbled punt return.

Backup tailback Kenyan Drake added a 23-yard catch on a swing pass early in the second quarter. He bounced off a defender near the line of scrimmage and dove into end zone.

Starter T.J. Yeldon ran for 28 yards on the game's first play and finished with six carries for 51 yards.

Drake finished with five carries for 40 yards. Freshman Derrick Henry gained 50 yards on five carries.

Alabama freshman defensive end A'Shawn Robinson made his first career start in place of Jeoffrey Pagan (shoulder), and plenty of other youngsters and reserves saw significant action.
