               === Alabama rolls on, crushes Florida Atlantic ===
 
 Tuscaloosa,  AL  (Sports Network)  - AJ  McCarron spearheaded another dominant
 Alabama performance, throwing three touchdown passes as the top-ranked Crimson
 Tide pounded the Florida Atlantic Owls, 40-7, on Saturday.
 
 McCarron finished with 212 yards on 15-of-25 efficiency for Alabama (4-0).
 
 "I  was really  much more pleased with  the way our team approached this game,
 the  way  they actually played in  the game in  terms of the kind of intensity
 that  we played with,  the sense of urgency, the discipline that we had," said
 Alabama coach Nick Saban.
 
 The  Crimson  Tide produced points  on each of  their first seven drives while
 limiting the Owls (1-3) to six first downs and 110 yards of total offense.
 
 Florida   Atlantic  quarterback  Graham  Wilbert  attempted  only  13  passes,
 completing  seven  of them for  34 yards. He threw  a 6-yard touchdown pass to
 Alex  Deleon to  spoil Alabama's bid for a third consecutive shutout with 2:49
 remaining in the fourth quarter.
 
 "They  are  as physical a  team as there is  out there," said Florida Atlantic
 coach Carl Pelini. "We saw it on film and it translated today. They're a great
 football team, that's for sure."
 
 The  Crimson Tide started fast as McCarron and Kenny Bell hooked up for an 85-
 yard touchdown on the third play of the game.
 
 DeAndrew  White then caught a 4-yard touchdown pass before Cade Foster drilled
 a 52-yard field goal 11 seconds into the second quarter.
 
 Jeremy Shelley connected on a pair of field goals and Christion Jones caught a
 4-yard TD pass to give Alabama a commanding 30-0 halftime lead.
 
 A  46-yard Foster  field  goal accounted  for  all the  scoring  in the  third
 quarter. Kenyan Drake added an 8-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter.
