Tuscaloosa, AL (AP) - Greg McElroy completed 12 of 13 passes
for 159 yards and two touchdowns and No. 10 Alabama routed
fledgling Georgia State 63-7 on Thursday night.
It's the most points for the Crimson Tide (9-2) since a 66-3 win
over Vanderbilt in 1979.
The game against a Football Championship Subdivision team
competing in its first year of college football was predictably
little more than a warmup for next week's showdown with No. 2
Auburn. The Panthers (6-5) are led by former Tide coach Bill Curry,
who was more accustomed to being on the other side of Bryant-Denny
McElroy set an Alabama single-game completion percentage mark of
92.3 with a minimum of 10 attempts.
Mark Ingram ran for 86 yards and a touchdown and Julio Jones
caught seven passes for 86 yards and two scores before the stars
yielded to the backups in the second quarter.
