January 1, 2011

Alabama (10-3) destroyed Michigan State 49-7 in the Capital One Bowl as Mark Ingram and Eddie Lacy each rushed for 2 scores, Trent Richardson and Julio Jones each ran for 1 TD, and Greg McElroy tossed a TD pass Marquis Maze.

It was 49-0 before the Spartans (11-2) got on the board with under 6 minutes left in the game that resulted in their worst-ever bowl loss.

Alabama's 33rd bowl win broke a tie with USC for most bowl victories by any school in the country.

It was the first meeting ever between the two teams.

Alabama improved to 33-22-3 all-time in bowl games, but just 5-5 in its last 10 bowl trips. Michigan State fell to 7-14 in its bowl history after its 5th consecutive bowl loss. The Spartans are 2-9 in bowl games since 1993.

This was the 19th consecutive season that the Capital One Bowl has matched an SEC team with a Big Ten opponent and 'Bama's win gave the SEC a 10-9 edge in the series. The Big Ten has taken 6 of the last 7 games.

Alabama's only other appearance in this Orlando bowl game occurred at the end of the 1994 season when it downed Ohio State 24-17. Michigan State has only played in this game twice previously, the latest coming at the end of the 2008 season when it fell 24-12 to Georgia. The Spartans beat Florida 37-34 to end the 1999 season.
