SOUTHEAST ROUNDUP : Despite Mistakes, Alabama Beats Georgia, 10-0

From Associated Press

Siran Stacy ran for 73 yards, caught five passes for 55 more and scored the game’s only touchdown as Alabama defeated 25th-ranked Georgia, 10-0, in a Southeastern Conference game Saturday night at Tuscaloosa, Ala.

Both teams are 2-1 overall and 1-1 in the SEC.

Alabama, which fell from the rankings after losing to Florida a week ago, hurt itself with penalties, fumbles and two missed field goals before taking the lead with 1:01 left in the third quarter on Stacy’s four-yard run.

Hamp Greene iced it with an 18-yard field goal in the final quarter.


The last time Georgia was shut out was in 1984, by Florida, 27-0.

Louisiana State 16, Vanderbilt 14--Linebacker Ricardo Washington returned an intercepted pass 28 yards for a touchdown and Wayne Williams recovered a fumble to foil a last-minute bid by the Commodores as the Tigers won an SEC game at Baton Rogue, La.

Vanderbilt (1-2, 0-1) drove from its 28 to third and goal at the LSU two when Corey Harris attempted to dive over the line. Washington, an inside linebacker, met him in midair, and the ball popped up into Williams’ arms. He returned it 76 yards.

Pedro Suarez kicked three field goals for LSU (1-2, 1-0).


Mississippi 38, Ohio University 14--Marvin Courtney ran for three touchdowns in the Rebels’ first four possessions and Tom Luke threw two touchdown passes at Oxford, Miss.

Courtney, a sophomore, had scoring runs of nine, one and four yards as the Rebels (3-1) had their highest scoring output of the season.

Ohio (1-1-1) managed 355 yards of total offense, but didn’t score until the third quarter, after the Rebels had built a 28-0 lead.
