ATLANTA, Aug. 31 (UPI) -- Christion Jones returned a punt and a kickoff for scores and also grabbed a TD pass Saturday in No. 1 Alabama's 35-10 victory over Virginia Tech.

AJ McCarron needed to go just 10-of-24 through the air for 110 yards for the Crimson Tide (1-0), which opened their quest for a third straight national championship with a win in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Classic.

Alabama also got a touchdown on an interception return by defensive back Vinnie Sunseri in its first game since downing Notre Dame in last year's BCS national championship tilt.

Logan Thomas completed only 5-of-26 passes for 59 yards for the Hokies (0-1).
