Michigan Vs. Alabama: Wolverines Trail After 1st Quarter, 21-0

Michigan is going to have to climb out of a 21-0 hole if the Wolverines want a shot at winning their season opener against the defending BCS champion Alabama Crimson Tide at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington.

Alabama wasted no time getting on the scoreboard in this one, jumping out to a 7-0 lead on a nine-play, 61-yard drive that took 4:22. Then a bit later on, it was A.J. McCarron hooking up with DeAndrew White for a 51-yard score and an Eddie Lacy nine-yard touchdown run.

Denard Robinson appeared to have injured himself trying to tackle Dee Milliner, who intercepted one of his passes toward the end of the quarter. Robinson leaned in with his right shoulder (his throwing shoulder), trying to keep Milliner from taking the interception back for a touchdown. Robinson came back into the game, but that shoulder will be worth keeping an eye on for the rest of the night.
