KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Trent Richardson's 65-yard touchdown run and 5-yard touchdown reception were part of 28 unanswered second-half points as No. 7 Alabama beat Tennessee 41-10 on Saturday night.

Greg McElroy completed 21 of 32 for 264 yards, mostly to Julio Jones, who set an Alabama single-game record with 221 yards on 12 catches.

Alabama came out of halftime with only a 13-10 lead after a sluggish first half, but wasted no time in the third quarter. The Tide got three straight first downs on its opening drive before Mark Ingram scored on a 1-yard run.

Richardson finished with 119 yards on 12 carries, and the Crimson Tide got its fourth straight win over Tennessee for the first time since 1992.
