FAYETTEVILLE, Ark., Sept. 15 (UPI) -- Eddie Lacy scored three rushing touchdowns on 11 carries Saturday and top-ranked Alabama cruised to a 52-0 conference-opening thrashing of No. 21 Arkansas.

Lacy finished with 55 yards, while AJ McCarron completed 11-of-16 passes for with 188 yards and a touchdown for Alabama (3-0, 1-0 SEC).

The Crimson Tide turned both of the pickoffs into touchdowns.
