Richardson powers No. 2 Bama past Auburn, 42-14

AUBURN, Ala. — Trent Richardson rushed for a career-high 203 yards and AJ McCarron threw three first-half touchdown passes to lift No. 2 Alabama to a 42-14 victory over rival Auburn on Saturday.

The Crimson Tide (11-1, 7-1 Southeastern Conference) now must wait and see if its resume is good enough to secure a shot at a second national title in three years. No. 3 Oklahoma State and No. 1 LSU have big games remaining.

Richardson ran 27 times and caught a 5-yard touchdown pass in his final chance to impress Heisman Trophy voters. He had runs of 35 and 57 yards to set up second-half scores.

The Tide didn’t put Auburn (7-5, 4-4) away until Dee Milliner’s 35-yard interception return early in the fourth quarter. Alabama entered the quarter with a 309-44 advantage in total yards but also gave up touchdowns on a fumble recovery and a kick return.
