Alabama left no doubt vs. Vandy

Any momentum the Commodores had entering Saturday's game with the Crimson Tide evaporated quickly, as they were outgained 677-78 in total yards and tallied three first downs to Bama's 38. Those three first downs were the fewest by an SEC team in the last 20 seasons.

Alabama has now won 19 straight games against SEC East opponents. The Crimson Tide's last loss to an East team came in 2010 to South Carolina. Other than Nick Saban, the only other SEC head coach at that time who's still in his current job is Mississippi State's Dan Mullen.

There haven't been any mysteries or surprises in the Alabama-Vanderbilt game. The Crimson Tide have owned the Commodores in the line of scrimmage in jumping out to a 21-0 first-quarter lead. Vanderbilt had only given up a total of 13 points in its first three games.

The infatuation with Bo Scarbrough is understandable, but Damien Harris is as good as they come at RB. A patient runner who can do it all in terms of blocking, pass-catching, etc.
