Crimson Tide Off to 2-0 Start

Terry Grant ran 24 times for 173 yards and two touchdowns, and Alabama made Nick Saban the latest coach to oversee the Crimson Tide's dominance of Vanderbilt with a 24-10 victory Saturday.

Leigh Tiffin kicked three field goals, and Alabama (2-0) won its Southeastern Conference opener with a 20th straight victory in a series it now leads 59-19-4. The Tide improved to 18-3-1 when opening SEC play against the Commodores (1-1, 0-1).

Alabama rolled up 371 yards offense. The margin could have been wider, but Tiffin was wide left on a 49-yarder and short on a 48-yard attempt.

The defense came up with two sacks and a turnover in holding Vandy to 101 yards offense through three quarters. Alabama also held two-time All-SEC receiver Earl Bennett to four catches for 52 yards.
