MOBILE, Al (AP) - Coty Blanchard and Daryl Norris each threw second-half touchdown passes as Alabama claimed a 21-13 victory on Saturday in the Alabama-Mississippi All-Star Classic at Ladd-Peebles Stadium.

Blanchard, from Class 4A state champion Cherokee County, hit Maudrecas Humphrey of Class 6A champion Hoover for a 21-yard touchdown to put Alabama on top 7-3 late in the third quarter. Norris, from Daphne, hooked up with Murphys Solomon Patton – a University of Florida commitment - for a 50-yard score early in the fourth quarter.

Dale Trimble, of Gadsden City and Alabama's Most Valuable Player, returned an interception 36 yards for a touchdown moments after Pattons score to make it 21-3. The victory improved Alabama to 16-7 all-time in the game.
