AJ McCarron passed for two touchdowns and became No. 1 Alabama's winningest quarterback in Saturday's 49-0 victory over Chattanooga.

McCarron completed 13 of 16 passes for 171 yards before leaving one drive into the second half of his final game at Bryant-Denny Stadium for the Crimson Tide (11-0). He improved to 36-2 as a starter, breaking a tie with Jay Barker for the school mark.

McCarron and Alabama got an easy tuneup for the Iron Bowl against No. 6 Auburn to determine the Southeastern Conference Western Division champion.

The Tide produced its third shutout of the year and had a blocked field goal against the FCS Mocs (8-4).

Kenyan Drake ran for 77 yards and a 13-yard touchdown with starting tailback T.J. Yeldon sitting out to rest a sprained ankle.

Christion Jones scored on a 75-yard punt return in the second quarter.
