If We Had A College Football Playoff - Quarterfinal Results - Thursday Night Game

Alabama vs Nebraska - in Orlando Florida - Site of the Capital One Bowl

Nebraska's Cinderella run come to a crashing halt within earshot of her Castle as Alabama ran roughshod on the Cornhuskers in Orlando on Thursday evening. Mark Ingram scored three touchdowns, including a 55-yarder on the Tide's first possession as Alabama moved to the Final Four with a 39-17 thrashing of Nebraska. The Huskers season comes to an end at 12-5. The Heisman trophy winner ran for 230 yards and 3 touchdowns on the night. Roy Helu, who has had some impressive performances in the tourney, tried to keep Alabama close. The Husker runner ran for 157 yards and two scores but 'Bama was just too much. The 'Bama pass defense limited Nebraska to just 7 completions on 27 attempts - and picked off a pair of passes in the win. Alabama led just 20-10 nearing the end of the third quarter, but a field goal from Leigh Tiffin and a 33-yard run from Ingram in a span of 1 minute and three seconds left little doubt. Trent Richardson also had a nice night for the Crimson Tide. He toted the ball 14 times for 81 yards and a second quarter touchdown. Greg McElroy was an efficient 11-of-14 for 102 yards in the win. Julio Jones caught four of those posses for 58 yards.
