Alabama Vs. Michigan 2012 Final Score: Michigan Loses Season Opener, 41-14

The Wolverines were blown out in their season opener against defending BCS champion Alabama Crimson Tide on Saturday night by a final score of 41-14.

Alabama jumped on Michigan early with a 21-0 advantage after the first quarter. It didn't get much better for the Wolverines from there. However, Denard Robinson rushed for a six-yard touchdown in the second quarter, and Michigan saw the end zone one more time in the third quarter when Robinson connected with Devin Gardner for a 44-yard touchdown pass play.

Michigan and Alabama were about even in the passing game, but it was on the ground where the Tide dominated. Alabama recorded 231 yards compared to Michigan's feeble 68 yards rushing.
