STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) - Mark Ingram rushed for 149 yards and
two touchdowns, Greg McElroy threw two long scoring passes and No.
3 Alabama improved to 10-0 for the second straight year with a 31-3
win over Mississippi State on Saturday night.
Mark Barron made his fifth and six interceptions of the season,
most in the Southeastern Conference, and helped the Crimson Tide
(7-0 SEC) smother the Bulldogs (4-6, 2-4).
The Alabama offense matched the defense big play for big play,
and did it without a turnover or penalty.
Ingram had a workmanlike night until midway through the fourth
quarter when he ripped off a 70-yard scoring run untouched. That
one-play drive came after McElroy hit Julio Jones with a 48-yard
touchdown pass on the previous drive, which also went for one play.
