TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Alabama's special teams and defense are providing a bailout whenever the offense isn't racking up points.
The top-ranked Crimson Tide has scored just about every which way this season - returning a punt, a kick, a blocked punt and two interceptions for touchdowns.
That knack helped Alabama (3-0) beat No. 10 Texas A&M and create more lopsided scores against Virginia Tech and Colorado State, games when the offense stalled at times.
The Tide managed its fifth non-offensive touchdown when Kenyan Drake smothered a Colorado State punt Saturday night and Dillon Lee scooped and scored from 15 yards out. Two fourth-quarter touchdowns helped Bama ease home with a 31-6 win.
Linebacker C.J. Mosley says the players ``want our special teams to make plays and put points on the board.''
