Recap


Trent Richardson rushed for a career-high 183 yards and four touchdowns, and No. 3 Alabama scored 52 unanswered points to pound host Mississippi 52-7 on Saturday.

The Crimson Tide (7-0, 4-0 SEC West) have won 25 of the past 27 meetings dating to 1977. The margin of defeat was the largest for the Rebels since a 49-3 loss to Florida in 1981.

Mississippi (2-4, 0-3) managed only 141 total yards - 72 on a touchdown drive to open the game, marking the 36th time in Nick Saban's 61-game tenure that Alabama has allowed 300 yards or less, including all seven games this season. The Tide had 615 yards.

Richardson, who scored in each of the first three quarters and capped his night with a 76-yard touchdown run, has topped 100 yards rushing in six consecutive games to match Shaun Alexander's school record.

Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron also extended an impressive streak. McCarron has thrown 152 passes without an interception, the third-longest streak in school history.

The Rebels lost defensive end Wayne Dorsey to a broken arm in the fourth quarter.

Alabama improved to 16-1 in October since 2007 with the loss coming at South Carolina last season.
