College football has been back for a few days, but there's nothing like a Saturday afternoon showdown.
Alabama and Miami are two of the most storied programs in college football, and with two giants facing each other for the first time since the 1993 Sugar Bowl, this matchup was sure to be a treat. However, the Week 1 shellacking was anything but sweet for the Hurricanes.
There's no place like home -- er, Atlanta -- for the Crimson Tide.

Alabama entered the matchup with a 14-game win streak in Atlanta since losing the 2008 SEC championship game in the city.
Scoring was not an issue for Crimson Tide tight end Cameron Latu, or the rest of the team. Alabama has now scored 30-plus points in 27 straight games, which is the second-longest streak in the AP poll era.

Sophomore Bryce Young didn't waste any time getting comfortable in his new role as starting quarterback.
