McCarron faked a handoff to perfection, after Lacy and Yeldon had carried the ball down the field, and tossed a 2-yard TD pass to Michael Williams for a 7-0 lead.
Robinson overthrew two receivers before another Michigan punt, and McCarron hit DeAndrew White in stride streaking down the sideline for a 51-yard score. Cornerback Courtney Avery, in after starter Blake Countless sustained an early knee injury, slipped down on the play.
Then came Milliner's big shove that he got away with for a big play. With Roundtree on the ground and the ball in the air, Milliner caught the ball near midfield and returned it to the Michigan 17. Robinson helped make a touchdown-saving tackle, and appeared to grab his right shoulder then.
"I got a good jam," Milliner explained. "When I looked up, the ball was coming and I made a play on it."
Lacy, limited coming off an ankle sprain, broke two tackles on a hard-charging score that made it 21-0, still in the first quarter.
When Jeremy Shelley's 22-yard field goal made it 24-0 with 10 minutes left in the first half, the Crimson Tide had 233 total yards — 199 more than Michigan. It was 31-0 after Robinson inexplicably threw a pass right into Mosley's chest.
Alabama finished with 431 total yards, and Michigan had 269.
The crowd of 90,413 was the largest ever to see a college game at Cowboys Stadium, where the crowd was distinctly split by fans in crimson and those in maize.
At the end, the Alabama fans were chanting "S-E-C!, S-E-C!" and "Roll Tide!"
"It's a deflating loss, it should sting," Michigan safety Jordan Kovacs said. "But at the end of the day, you can't let Alabama beat you twice."
