No. 2 Alabama rolls past Western Carolina 48-14

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) Banged up in two straight wins over SEC West bruisers, No. 2 Alabama took a while to overwhelm a lower-division team that wasn't supposed to be able to put up much of a fight.

Derrick Henry rushed for two touchdowns and scored a third on a catch, all in the first half, to lead the Crimson Tide to a 48-14 victory over Western Carolina on Saturday.

The Tide (10-1) recovered from a slow start to score the final 31 points in its first game since rising to No. 1 in the College Football Playoff rankings. FCS member Western Carolina (7-5) scored a touchdown on the opening drive and trailed just 17-14 early in the second quarter.
