Alabama's domination continues.
The No. 1 Crimson Tide cruised past Tennessee 44-13 Saturday night at Neyland Stadium.
A crowd that began as 102,455 was reduced to mostly Alabama fans after the Tide tacked on two big-play touchdowns in the fourth quarter.
Alabama (7-0, 4-0 SEC) ran its winning streak over Tennessee (3-4, 0-4 SEC) to six games.
The Vols' only touchdown was a 2-yard run by A.J. Johnson in the second quarter.
It was 30-10 o after three quarters.
The only score of the third quarter was AJ McCarron's second TD pass of the night to Amari Cooper. This one covered 42 yards and converted when Justin Coleman fell down at the critical moment.
A few minutes later, Tennessee threatened but Tyler Bray threw an end zone interception, picked off by Robert Lester to nix what could have been a 21-yard score to Alton Howard.
Alabama had another TD pass wiped out by a penalty and stuffed UT on fourth-and-1 at the Tide 33.
The second quarter was busy. A Tyler Bray interception set up Bama for T.J. Yeldon's 1-yard touchdown to make it 13-3. Then the Tide went 72 yards in four plays, the TD on a 1-yard toss from AJ McCarron to Michael Williams.
Down 20-3, Tennessee struck back with Johnson's 2-yard touchdown run to narrow it to 20-10.
The Tide tacked on a 34-yard Jeremy Shelley field goal.
Alabama struck first.
The Vols forced one three-and-out, but then a long punt return gave the Tide field position at the UT 47. McCarron passed 23 yards to wide-open Amari Cooper for the touchdown.
Tennessee mounted an 11-play drive but had to settle for Michael Palardy's 32-yard field goal.
