Tide shuts down Vols

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — T.J. Yeldon scored on three 1-yard runs and AJ McCarron passed for 275 yards and two touchdowns to help Alabama win 45-10.

Landon Collins returned an interception 89 yards for another score for the Crimson Tide (8-0, 5-0 Southeastern Conference), which raced to a 35-0 halftime lead. Alabama has outscored its last six opponents 246-26.

The Volunteers (4-4, 1-3) dropped their seventh straight in the rivalry game, tying the most consecutive wins for either team. Coach Butch Jones turned to freshman quarterback Josh Dobbs in the second half in his first college action, replacing Justin Worley.

Worley was 8-of-15 passing for 120 yards and was intercepted twice.

No. 2 OREGON 42, No. 12 UCLA 14: Byron Marshall ran for 133 yards and three touchdowns and Oregon wore down UCLA’s stout defense.

Marcus Mariota threw for 230 yards and a score and De’Anthony Thomas returned from a three game absence to run in another for the Ducks (8-0, 5-0 Pac-12).

The Bruins (5-2, 2-2) went into halftime with the score knotted at 14 but were shutout by the Ducks in the second half.

Brett Hundley completed 13 of 19 passes for 64 yards and a touchdown but also threw two interceptions, including one early in the fourth quarter that led to an Oregon touchdown. He also ran for 64 yards and a score.

No. 3 FLORIDA STATE 49, NORTH CAROLINA STATE 17: Jameis Winston threw for 292 yards and three touchdowns and Florida State scored 35 points in the first quarter.

Winston completed 16-of-26 passes with one interception and left the game after the opening series of the second half.

Rashad Greene topped 100 yards receiving for the third consecutive game with eight receptions for 137 yards and a touchdown for the Seminoles (7-0, 5-0).

The Wolfpack upset the Seminoles in Raleigh, N.C., last season, but this year it was no contest as Florida State put on a show for its old coach. Hall of Famer Bobby Bowden was honored at Doak Campbell Stadium.
