This one was even more one-sided for the 50-point underdogs.
McCarron was 15 of 25 passing for 212 yards before leaving midway through the third quarter. The 85-yarder came 1 minute, 42 seconds into the game and is tied for the fifth-longest touchdown pass in Tide history.
The only suspense late was whether Alabama could complete a third consecutive shutout for the first time since Bear Bryant's unbeaten 1966 team.
Alabama ran its shutout streak to 192 minutes, 25 seconds dating back to the third quarter of the opener against Michigan, but that's as far as it got.
Graham Wilbert hit Alex Deleon for a 6-yard touchdown with 2:49 left, silencing the remaining fans hoping for three shutouts in a row. It took 8 minutes, 24 seconds, 15 plays and two fourth-down conversions to reach the end zone on the drive.
An unsportsmanlike conduct flag against Alabama's bench for stepping too far onto the field two plays before the score showed how badly the Tide wanted to keep the goose eggs flowing.
The Owls had just 41 yards and one first down through three quarters before finally moving the ball across midfield on the final drive.
Wilbert was 7 of 13 passing for 34 yards 23 on the cosmetic scoring drive.
