TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Mark Ingram ran for 102 yards and two long touchdowns in the first half, and No. 2 Alabama breezed to a 45-0 win over Chattanooga on Saturday.
The Crimson Tide (11-0) raced to a 35-0 halftime lead and showed no signs of a letdown ahead of games with rival Auburn and No. 1 Florida.
That enabled many of the starters to take a break in the second half against the FCS Mocs (6-5), but Ingram and the Tide still managed to turn in a few highlight-reel plays.
Ingram raced for touchdowns of 25 and 40 yards, and Javier Arenas set the SEC career record with his seventh punt return for a touchdown, sprinting 66 yards down the right sideline in the second quarter. Arenas also had an interception.
Julio Jones caught a 44-yard pass and scored on a 19-yarder from Greg McElroy.
The stats were even more lopsided than the final score. Alabama held Chattanooga to fewer than 100 yards total offense.
