Top 25 roundup: No. 1 Alabama rolls past Tennessee
(TSX / STATS) -- TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- It took a little while for Alabama to flex its muscles against Tennessee, but the Crimson Tide eventually showed why they are the No. 1 team in the nation.
Alabama recorded nearly 500 more yards than the Volunteers and extended its winning streak over Tennessee to 11 with a 45-7 victory on Saturday afternoon at Bryant-Denny Stadium.
The Crimson Tide's stingy defense allowed only 108 total yards and held redshirt freshman quarterback Jarrett Guarantano, making his second career start, to 44 yards on 9-of-16 passing. He was intercepted once as Alabama held Tennessee's offense scoreless.
