TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - AJ McCarron passed for 258 yards and threw a 30-yard touchdown to DeAndrew White in the fourth quarter to lift No. 1 Alabama to a 31-6 victory over Colorado State on Saturday night.
   
Kenyan Drake set up one touchdown with a blocked punt and scored on a 3-yard touchdown run for the Crimson Tide (3-0), which sputtered at times.  Alabama managed only one offensive touchdown and no third-down conversions in the first three quarters a week after winning a 49-42 shootout over Texas A&M.
   
Coached by former Tide offensive coordinator Jim McElwain, the Rams (1-3) nursed hopes for a monumental upset into the fourth quarter before allowing two touchdowns. Trey DePriest stripped the ball from quarterback Garrett Grayson and recovered the fumble.
   
The next play McCarron laced a perfect strike to White in the end zone and restless Alabama fans got something to cheer about.
