Tide rides defense in 34-0 win over UL-Monroe
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Jake Coker threw three touchdown passes and No. 12 Alabama's defense limited Louisiana-Monroe to 92 total yards in a 34-0 route on Saturday.
The Crimson Tide (3-1) had an uneven offensive performance but it didn't make much difference in a game between No. 3 Mississippi and No. 7 Georgia.
The Warhawks (1-2) didn't have a first down in the first 23 minutes and were held to 9 yards rushing. They lost 51-14 to the Bulldogs three weeks earlier.
It was their first return visit since stunning the Tide 21-14 eight years ago in coach Nick Saban's first season, which still stands as the low point of his tenure.
This one seemed out of reach by the time Alabama went up 14-0 in the second quarter.
The Tide racked up six sacks and two interceptions.
