ATLANTA – Derrick Henry and T.J. Yeldon combined for 188 yards and four touchdowns on 34 carries as Alabama rolled to the SEC championship – and a spot in the inaugural College Football Playoff – with a 42-13 victory over Missouri at the Georgia Dome on Saturday.
Blake Sims also had a big game, completing a near-perfect 23 of 27 passes for 262 yards and a pair of touchdowns.
Missouri actually got within a possession in the second half, but Alabama pulled away with three fourth-quarter touchdowns.
John Sadak and Chris Doering called the action on Westwood One Sports.
