Here is the latest Alabama sports news from The Associated Press
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — So much has changed since the last time Alabama welcomed Auburn into Bryant-Denny stadium. The Tigers bear little resemblance to the team that Cam Newton rallied from 24 points down two years ago on their way to a national title. Alabama is a 31.5-point favorite this time around.
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — UAB stands in the way of UCF securing a berth in the Conference USA championship and tying a school record for wins. UAB coach Garrick McGee insists being a spoiler is not on his team's radar. He hopes Blazers' freshman quarterback Austin Brown can finish the season strong as he fights through a groin injury.
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — Trevor Releford drained 22 points and Alabama earned a 59-46 victory over Charleston Southern Friday night in a nonconference showdown. Releford hit 7 of 15 from the field, including 5 of 8 from beyond the arc for his second straight game with five 3-pointers. He also had six assists.
LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — Carolyn Davis had 19 points and Angel Goodrich had 15 points and eight assists to lead the 22nd-ranked Kansas women to a 76-59 win over Alabama A&M. NeDra Robertson led A&M (1-3) with 12 points and eight rebounds.
