TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Greg McElroy passed for two touchdowns
and rushed for another before sitting out most of the second half
Saturday in No. 4 Alabama's 53-7 victory over North Texas.
Mark Ingram ran for 91 yards and a TD on eight carries, and
scored on a 29-yard reception for the Crimson Tide (3-0) in its final pre-SEC tuneup before Arkansas visits. Freshman Trent Richardson ran for 87 yards and a touchdown and Terry Grant scored twice and gained 79 yards.
It was the highest-scoring game for Alabama since a 56-3 win
over Louisiana Tech in 1993, six head coaches ago.
Star receiver Julio Jones missed the game with a bruised right knee and the subs got plenty of action after 'Bama raced to a 30-0 halftime lead.
With starting quarterback Riley Dodge out with a separated
non-throwing shoulder, North Texas (1-2) was outgained 523-187.
