Alabama was supposed to have one of the most dominating offenses in the SEC with the return of A.J. McCarron, T.J. Yeldon and Amari Cooper. However, that didn't happen last weekend.

McCarron finished with only 110 yards passing, while Yeldon had 75 yards on 17 carries. 

Had it not been for the two special-teams touchdowns and interception return for a touchdown, Alabama would have only won the game 14-10.

Alabama's offense was disappointing to say the least. The Crimson Tide mustered 206 yards of total offense. That's right, 206. That ranks them 113th in FBS.

Even with the win, that's not something to be proud of for the defending national champions.
