ATLANTA -- The scoreboard read the way everyone pretty much expected it to. It showed an SEC team trouncing another almost helpless victim from the ACC. But Alabama's 35-10 win didn't feel like the blow out that the scoreboards inside the Georgia Dome indicated.

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- Nick Saban didn't like the idea of doing it, but he did his duties and released a depth chart. "If I were you, I wouldn't make to much of the depth chart we released," Alabama's head coach warned during Monday's news conference.
