Hurts, No. 1 Alabama outlast Colorado State, 41-23

Jalen Hurts and Alabama scored in a hurry, then did it again — and again.

The top-ranked Crimson Tide raced to a lead Saturday night, lost a chunk of it, then outlasted Colorado State 41-23 Saturday night.

Hurts passed for 248 yards and two long touchdowns and rushed for 103 yards for the Tide (3-0) in his best all-around game of the season.

He ran for a 27-yard touchdown and hit on a career-long 78-yard scoring pass to Calvin Ridley and a 52-yarder to Robert Foster.

Foster's catch and run came after Colorado State scored 10 straight points.

"I think it was huge, because they had gotten the momentum in the game," Tide coach Nick Saban said....
