TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Alabama center Ryan Kelly says the locker room was subdued after the defending national champions' season opener.


Never mind that the top-ranked Crimson Tide beat Virginia Tech 35-10.


Kelly said Tuesday night that players were disappointed because "we knew as a team afterward that we didn't make them quit."


The offense did sputter at times during the game, when three touchdowns came on special teams or an interception return. The Tide likely won't be able to afford such uneven offensive play in next week's grudge match at No. 7 Texas A&M.


Alabama has an extra week to prepare to face the only team to beat the Tide last season.


Coach Nick Saban says he gave wide receiver Kenny Bell a "personal day" from practice on Tuesday but expects him back.
