Top-Ranked Alabama Blanks Chattanooga 49-0

Kevin C. Cox.Getty Images(TUSCALOOSA, Ala.) --  AJ McCarron can add a new accomplishment to his already impressive collegiate resume, winningest quarterback in Alabama history.

McCarron threw for 171 yards and two scores as No. 1 Alabama blanked Chattanooga on Saturday.  He improved to 36-2 as a starter in his final home game, passing Jay Barker for the most wins in school history.

Alabama (11-0, 7-0 SEC) shut out its third opponent of the season and will now prepare to face No. 6 Auburn in the Iron Bowl to determine the Southeastern Conference Western Division champion.

T.J. Yeldon missed the game with a sprained ankle, but Kenyan Drake filled in and rushed for 77 yards with a touchdown.

The Tide outgained Chattanooga (8-4) 435-175 in total yards despite resting their starters for most of the second half.
