Alabama Rallies to Beat VaTech 34-24

No. 5 Alabama overcame a 98-yard kickoff return,
two costly turnovers and several silly penalties, finally wearing
down No. 7 Virginia Tech in the final quarter for a 34-24 victory
Saturday night.

It was another rousing start of a season at the Georgia Dome for
the Crimson Tide, which began a national title run here last season
by thumping Clemson.

Mark Ingram rushed for 150 yards and finished off Virginia Tech
with two fourth-quarter touchdowns. Greg McElroy threw for 230
yards in his debut as Alabama's starting quarterback, taking quite
a beating but standing tall at the end.

Alabama held a staggering 498-155 edge in total yards, but this
one wasn't decided until the final quarter.
