TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — AJ McCarron threw three touchdown passes and Kenyan Drake rushed for 104 yards and two scores to lead No. 1 Alabama to a 52-0 victory over Arkansas on Saturday night.

The Crimson Tide (7-0, 4-0 Southeastern Conference) rolled to a 28-0 halftime lead and easily avoided catching the upset bug that struck other SEC powers. Alabama has won by the same margin over Arkansas two years running.

The Razorbacks (3-5, 0-4) have dropped five straight games and were coming off a 52-7 loss to No. 11 South Carolina.

Drake needed just eight carries to reach 100 yards for the second straight week. T.J. Yeldon had 88 yards and a touchdown on 12 carries.

McCarron was 15-of-21 passing for 180 yards in three quarters, including touchdowns of 4, 30 and 17 yards.

Arkansas' Brandon Allen completed 7 of 25 passes for 91 yards with two interceptions.
