TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Mark Ingram scored two touchdowns, C.J. Mosley returned an interception 35 yards for a score and the top-ranked Crimson Tide overwhelmed No. 7 Florida 31-6 on Saturday night.
Round 2 between the last two national champions could come in Atlanta in early December at the SEC title game. Alabama (5-0, 2-0) certainly looked like a team on its way to another championship season.
In front of a 101,821 at a blaring Bryant-Denny Stadium, coach Nick Saban's Tide rolled to a 24-0 lead in the second quarter behind Ingram's two short TD runs and a defense that was buzzing around the ball.
After the Gators (4-1, 2-1) chipped it down to 24-6 in the middle of the third quarter, Mosley picked off a short pass by a hurried John Brantley into the middle of the field, and raced to the end zone for a score that all but wrapped up Alabama's 19th straight victory.
