TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - T.J. Yeldon rushed for 121 yards, Kenyan Drake gained 99 and a dominating defense powered No. 1 Alabama to a 25-0 victory over No. 21 Mississippi on Saturday night.


Yeldon scored on a 68-yard run and Drake added a 50-yard scamper to revive a struggling running game for the Crimson Tide (4-0, 2-0 Southeastern Conference), which outgained the Rebels 434-205.


Ole Miss (3-1, 1-1) was seeking its first 4-0 start in 43 years but instead was shut out for the first time since Arkansas did it in November 1998.


AJ McCarron completed 25 of 32 passes for 180 yards with an interception for Alabama, which came in ranked last in the league in rushing. Alabama was held to 36 rushing yards in building a 9-0 halftime lead but gained another 218 on the ground in the second half.


Bo Wallace was 17-of-30 passing for 159 yards for the Rebels.
