Sims, Coker Lead No. 2 Alabama Past FAU, 41-0

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — Blake Sims had 214 passing yards and Jake Coker threw for 202 to lead No. 2 Alabama to a 41-0 win over Florida Atlantic on Saturday in a game halted by lightning.

Both quarterbacks got a chance to stake a claim to the starting job for the Crimson Tide (2-0) in a one-sided game. Both schools agreed to end the game with 7:53 left.

Sims passed for two touchdowns and ran for a third in his second straight start and didn’t play in the fourth quarter. He was 11-of-13 passing.

Coker went 14 of 23 with a touchdown in his first significant action but the Florida State transfer missed some open receivers downfield.

Amari Cooker had 189 receiving yards and tied DJ Hall’s 8-year-old school record with 13 catches. The Tide outgained the Owls 620-145.
