Alabama passes first test in win over FSU

FSU's Deondre Francois suffers late leg injury vs Alabama; severity unknown

Last season, Francois threw for 3,350 yards with 20 touchdowns. Francois didn't appear able to put any weight on his left foot as he was carried off the field.

Coach Jimbo Fisher said he didn't immediately know the extent of the injury.

Hurts completed 10 of 18 passes for 96 yards and carried 15 times for 55 yards.

Alabama head coach Nick Saban speaks to players against Florida State during the first half of an NCAA football game, Saturday, Sept. 2, 2017, in Atlanta.

Texas recovery could cost $180 bn: Governor
Many areas of Texas were still battling floodwaters from swollen rivers that were expected to remain for a week or more. He said Harvey could ultimately cost more, considering the greater magnitude of Harvey compared to Katrina.

Alabama (1-0) limited the Seminoles (0-1) to just 65 total yards in the second half, including just 16 rushing yards on 14 second-half carries and kept Florida State on its own side of the field for almost all of final 30 minutes of action.

Right after that, FSU fumbles the kickoff return right after FSU's defense held Bama to a field goal and gave Bama great field position again and proceeded to score on the very first play after that miscue.

Harrison, who grew up in Tallahassee, tweeted after the game that the hit was not intentional and hoped that Francois would make a quick recovery.

Alabama answered with a 53-yard bomb from Hurts to Ridley later in the second quarter and led 10-7 at halftime when Minkah Fitzpatrick blocked a 37-yard field-goal attempt by FSU's Ricky Aguayo in the closing seconds.

"We beat a great team, Florida State came out relentless, (but) I think we played with great consistency", Alabama junior defensive tackle Da'Ron Payne said.

Francois threw for 210 yards, but had two costly interceptions that contributed to the Seminoles 24-7 loss to Alabama.

As Alabama's offense sputtered, the Tide's defense and special teams stepped up to deliver a two-touchdown lead. The Crimson Tide managed only three points after the Harris blocked punt put them inside Florida State's red zone.

Fisher said Blackman would likely be the starter next week against Louisiana-Monroe, if Francois isn't available. Even after a heartbreaking, last-second loss to Clemson in the national championship game, Saban and the Crimson Tide showed that they didn't lose a step during the offseason. Francois stayed on the turf after clutching his left knee.
