TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- A look at the good and bad from No. 4 Alabama's 49-0 romp over Western Carolina at home on Saturday.

THREE UP
1. Confidence gained: After back-to-back subpar performances, Alabama needed a thorough win to get back on the right track. Western Carolina was outmanned and outgunned, but it didn't matter. The Crimson Tide jumped out to a big lead and never looked back, maintaining their dominance for the full 60 minutes even when they were down to the second and third string.
