Knoxville, Tenn. • Amari Cooper caught two of A.J. McCarron's four touchdown passes Saturday to help No. 1 Alabama defeat Tennessee 44-13 for its sixth consecutive victory over the Volunteers.

Cooper finished with seven receptions for 162 yards, including a 23-yard touchdown in the first quarter and a 42-yard score in the third. Cooper also had a 30-yard touchdown nullified by a penalty.

McCarron went 17 of 22 for a career-high 306 yards for Alabama (7-0, 4-0). T.J. Yeldon rushed for 129 yards and two touchdowns.

Tennessee (3-4, 0-4) has lost 11 of its last 12 SEC games and is 0-14 against the top 25 since Derek Dooley took over the program in 2010.

Dooley returned to the sideline Saturday on crutches, less than two weeks after undergoing surgery on a fractured right hip. He had coached from the press box in a 41-31 loss at Mississippi State last week. —
