ATLANTA -- Alabama locked up another title, with plenty of style points for the playoff committee. Now, the Crimson Tide can go after the crown it really wants. Blake Sims threw a pair of touchdown passes, T.J. Yeldon and Derrick Henry each had a couple of touchdown runs, and top-ranked Alabama pulled away in the fourth quarter to win its 24th Southeastern Conference championship with a 42-13 rout of No. 14 Missouri on Saturday. Amari Cooper did nothing to hurt his Heisman chances with 12 receptions, the most in the games 23-year history. Missouri made it a one-score contest in the third quarter, but Alabama (12-1) put up three touchdowns over the final 15 minutes to lock up its spot in college footballs inaugural playoff. And if the committee was impressed by second-ranked Oregons 51-13 rout of Arizona in the Pac-12 title game Friday night, they got another equally dominating performance from the team on top of its latest rankings. For coach Nick Saban and the Tide, this one was especially sweet. A year ago, Alabama was poised to make a run at its third straight national title when Auburn won the Iron Bowl on the final play -- a 109-yard return of a missed field goal. The sting from that one will never totally go away, but this sure helped. Even though plucky Missouri (10-3) hung around much of the game, the Tide can book a trip to New Orleans for a likely semifinal game in the Sugar Bowl. Alabama was ranked No. 1 by the playoff committee after winning the brutal SEC West. By knocking off the East champion, the Tide made it three SEC titles in Sabans dominating eight years as coach, a run that increasingly looks like the second coming of Bear Bryant in a much more competitive era. Cheered on by a predominantly crimson-clad crowd at the Georgia Dome, Alabama started out like it was going to run Missouri right out of the building. With offensive co-ordinator Lane Kiffin calling a bunch of short passes and runs to deal with Missouris pass rush, the Tide went 68 yards in 10 plays -- never even going to third down -- to seize a 7-0 lead less than 4 minutes into the game. Missouri, which reached the title game for the second year in a row despite an ugly loss to Indiana and a 34-0 blowout at home by Georgia, managed to stay in the game thanks to Maty Mauks deep passing. He completed throws of 63, 47, 32 and 26 yards, one of them after a Johnny Manziel-like scramble in which he threw back across his body running to his left. It was not nearly enough against the Crimson Tide juggernaut. Sims, named the games MVP, pushed Alabama to a 14-0 lead with a 58-yard touchdown pass to DeAndrew White. On the first snap of the fourth quarter, the fifth-year senior who waited so long for his chance to start at quarterback hooked up with Christion Jones on a 6-yard TD that stretched the lead to 28-13. For good measure, Henry tacked on a couple of touchdown runs to make it a rout. He finished with 141 yards on 20 carries. Sims was brilliant, completing 23 of 27 for 262 yards. He went out for Alabamas final possession, then was pulled after one play so he could be saluted by the crowd. He gave Kiffin a long hug when he got to the sideline. دیدن لینک ها برای شما امکان پذیر نیست. لطفا ثبت نام کنید یا وارد حساب خود شوید تا بتوانید لینک ها را ببینید.

. They have watched it from afar. And now they have seen it for themselves.SEATTLE -- Marco Pappa, Chad Barrett and Obafemi Martins each scored second-half goals and the Seattle Sounders ended Real Salt Lakes season-opening unbeaten streak at 12 with a 4-0 victory Saturday in a game between the two top teams in Major League Soccer. Gonzalo Pineda also scored on a first-half penalty kick for the Sounders (9-3-2). Pappas goal was his first of the season. Barrett scored for the second straight game, giving him three goals for the year. Martins tallied his sixth. While Seattle won its MLS-high fifth straight home match, Salt Lake (6-1-6) fell for the first time, missing a chance to set an MLS record for longest unbeaten streak to start the year. Los Angeles (12-0 in 1996 and 10-0-2 in 2010) and Kansas City (10-0-2 in 2000) previously had 12-game season-opening undefeated streaks. Salt Lake also had an overall 16-game regular-season unbeaten streak (8-0-8) end. RSL hadnt lost since last Sept. 21 at home against San Jose, 2-1. "We talked about it before the game that we wanted to break the streak and keep the record for a couple of people," Sounders head coach Sigi Schmid said. "But mainly, we talked about us being No. 1 going against No. 2, and we have to show what were made of. "As a group, were maturing, and to be able to step into a game between first place and second place and win and have a convincing result speaks volumes for our character." Pinedas penalty kick was set up when a loose ball in the RSL box was sent toward the left post. Lamar Neagle of the Sounders chased after it, and was pushed to the ground by Aaron Maund, Pineda then beat goalkeeper Jeff Attinella to the back left side midway tthrough the 42nd minute.dddddddddddd Pappas goal late in the 55th minute came off of a direct free kick, launched over a six-man wall from 23 yards away on the right side. Barrett made it 3-0 early in the 62nd minute with a 12-yard shot that went high into the net. Martins notched the final goal late in the 90th minute on a give-and-go with Kenny Cooper. With the upcoming World Cup shaking up MLS rosters, both teams were without key players. Among the Sounders missing was leading goal scorer Clint Dempsey (eight goals). That created an opportunity for Barrett, who started and scored for the second week in a row. "I talked to Sigi, and he said since Dempsey was going to be gone for World Cup, there were going to be opportunities to step in," Barrett said. "In the practice weeks leading up to it, I was going to make sure that my fitness was where it needed to be. Coming in here, once you get one, the goal just seems to get a little bit bigger every time." Real Salt Lake is the second-highest scoring team in MLS behind Seattle. But of those 23 goals, 14 were missing due to World Cup (two for Kyle Beckerman) or injury (six each for Alvaro Saborio and Joao Plata). "Its a tough place to play, and we dont have a full arsenal," coach Jeff Cassar said. "But I thought the guys out there did a very good job. I just told the guys to discount the third and fourth goals, because we were pushing and we knew we were going to be exposed at the back. "It was a fantastic run that we went on, but Im trying to make sure the team will react the same way I do: We have work to do, and its on to the next game." ' ' '
