TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - AJ McCarron completed 15 of 16 passes for 166 yards and four touchdowns in the first half and No. 1 Alabama rolled to a 45-3 victory over Georgia State on Saturday.

The Crimson Tide (5-0) jumped ahead 38-0 by halftime against the Panthers (0-5), a first-year Football Bowl Subdivision team.

McCarron led Alabama to touchdowns on each of his five possessions before leaving the game. He completed his first 12 passes, putting him in a three-way tie for the Tide's third-longest streak.

The four touchdown passes tied his career high and was the seventh time McCarron has reached that number. Alabama outgained the Panthers 477-175 and held them to 15 yards rushing.

The Tide hasn't allowed a touchdown in the past three games, giving up only three field goals.

Georgia State ended Alabama's shutout bid with Wil Lutz's school-record 53-yard field goal to cap the second half's opening drive.
