The Tide sure did roll.

Alabama proved unstoppable from the outset of the BCS championship game Monday night. The Crimson Tide mounted touchdown drives of 82, 61 and 80 yards on their first three possessions and went on to beat Notre Dame 42-14.

The lightning-quick start gave the Tide a 21-0 lead one play into the second quarter, and they built it by blowing the Fighting Irish off the ball.

Alabama dominated with an offensive line that includes three All-Americas -- first-teamers Barrett Jones at center and Chance Warmack at left guard, and second-teamer D.J. Fluker at right tackle. They created gaping holes against a team ranked fourth in nation in run defense, and neutralized Heisman Trophy finalist Manti Te'o, who became no factor.
