Recovering from an opening day upset loss to Ole Miss, Alabama romps past the SMU Mustangs 56-3 at Bryant-Denny Stadium. After trailing 3-0 at the end of the first quarter, the Tide rolls to 28 second quarter points and never looks back. Halfback Tony Nathan rushes for 101 yards on 10 carries and fullback Johnny Davis adds 90 on nine carries to spark a rushing attack that yields 419 yards. Dewey Mitchell is the defensive leader with nine tackles.
