TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Greg McElroy passed for a career-high
291 yards and three touchdowns and No. 3 Alabama opened
Southeastern Conference play with a 35-7 win over Arkansas on
The Crimson Tide (4-0, 1-0) picked on the Razorbacks' beleaguered defense with three huge plays and blocked a punt to win its 18th consecutive league opener dating to its 1992 national championship.
A relentless defense hounded Ryan Mallett and the nation's No. 2 offense. Mallett was just 12-for-35 for 161 yards for Arkansas
(1-2, 0-2) and threw his first interception.
Alabama romped against a team scorched for 52 points last week by Georgia. Trent Richardson broke four tackles for a 52-yard touchdown run, Julio Jones caught a 50-yard TD pass on a trick play and McElroy hit Marquis Maze for an 80-yarder.
