McCarron passes No. 2 Alabama past Vandy

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — AJ McCarron passed for career-highs of 237 yards and four touchdowns and No. 2 Alabama beat Vanderbilt 34-0 on Saturday night.

Trent Richardson rushed for 107 yards and a touchdown in his fifth straight 100-yard effort for the Crimson Tide (6-0, 3-0 Southeastern Conference).

The Commodores (3-2, 1-2) trailed by only seven points until the final minute of the opening half, then Alabama took over with four straight touchdown drives.

McCarron was 23 of 30 passing and didn’t add to Vandy’s national-best 14 interceptions before sitting out most of the fourth quarter. He hit DeAndrew White for touchdowns of 5 and 39 yards, the first scores of the receiver’s career.

Vanderbilt quarterback Jordan Rodgers replaced starter Larry Smith in the first half and played the rest of the way. Smith walked into the locker room but his status wasn’t immediately clear.
