Alabama on pace for 838 yards against Florida Atlantic

Alabama entered Saturday as 41-point favorites against Florida Atlantic.

Two quarters in and the Crimson Tide only have 11 points to go to cover. In a game that was decided before it began, the Crimson Tide are leading 31-0 at halftime.

More striking is the yardage discrepancy between the two teams. In two quarters of play, Alabama has already posted 419 total yards. That would put the Crimson Tide on pace for a total of 838 yards by the game's end.

Of course, Nick Saban will call off the dogs as the game moves on. Alabama will still likely reach the 600-yard threshold though.

Both Alabama quarterbacks Blake Sims and Jacob Coker have seen action, combinging for 275 first-half passing yards and three touchdowns. Receiver Amari Cooper has been the biggest beneficiary, catching 10 passes for 156 yards and a touchdown. After catching 12 passes for 130 yards in Alabama's season-opener against West Virginia, Cooper is staking his claim as the top draft-eligible receiver for 2015.

Six Alabama rushers combined for 144 yards on the ground at the half.
