GAINESVILLE, FLA. (AP) - Trent Richardson ran for 181 yards and two touchdowns, breaking tackles and carrying defenders along the way, and No. 3 Alabama rolled No. 12 Florida 38-10 Saturday night in an early season matchup of Southeastern Conference heavyweights.

Richardson finished with his fourth consecutive 100-yard game, and the latest one should solidify his position as one the Heisman Trophy front-runners.

With Richardson leading the way, the Crimson Tide (5-0, 2-0 SEC) extended its recent dominance in the series. Alabama has outscored the Gators (4-1, 2-1) 101-29 in three wins in as many seasons.

The latest one was over by halftime.

Florida struck first, getting a 65-yard touchdown pass from John Brantley to Andre Debose. It was one of few highlights for the Gators, who couldn’t run, couldn’t stop the run and lost Brantley to a right leg injury late in the second quarter.
