McCarron, Richardson lead No. 3 Alabama over Georgia Southern

AJ McCarron threw for three touchdowns and 21 victory over Georgia Southern.

McCarron completed 14-of-19 passes for 190 yards, while Richardson totaled 175 yards on 32 carries for the Crimson Tide (10-1), who reached 10 victories for the fourth consecutive season.

They have won two in a row since dropping a 9-6 overtime decision against LSU, and could find themselves back in the championship mix.
