Columbia, Mo. • Eddie Lacy and T.J. Yeldon gave top-ranked Alabama a pair of 100-yard rushers in the same game for the first time this season, and the duo combined for five scores in a soggy, weather-delayed 42-10 victory over Missouri on Saturday night.
The defending national champion Crimson Tide (6-0, 3-0 SEC) led 21-0 late in the first quarter en route to their 10th straight victory, all by 19 or more points.
They did just enough right after that to disappoint the few thousand fans who didn't leave for good during a 38-minute delay due to lightning with the Crimson Tide awaiting the extra-point kick for a 28-0 cushion after Yeldon's second scoring run with 8 minutes, 40 seconds to go in the half.
