TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- Alabamas quarterbacks both got auditions for the starting job, but its not clear yet who will win the role. Blake Sims had 214 passing yards and Jake Coker threw for 202 to lead the second-ranked Crimson Tide to a 41-0 win over Florida Atlantic on Saturday in a game cut short early for lightning. Its the first time two Alabama quarterbacks had thrown for 200 yards in the same game and the second most passing yards in program history behind Scott Hunters 484 against Auburn in 1969. Both quarterbacks got a chance to make a case for the Tides starting job in a one-sided game. The schools agreed to end the game with 7:53 left and Alabama (2-0) nearing the end zone again. Sims only significant misstep was a fumble near the goal line. "Blake played well except for the one play, and Jake got some experience," Tide coach Nick Saban said. "I think that experience should help his confidence and his ability to play with a little bit better rhythm as he gets that confidence. He did some very good things as well." Saban had made it clear leading up to the game that the battle to replace AJ McCarron wasnt over, though Coker only played briefly at the end of a victory over West Virginia. He enrolled at Alabama over the summer. Sims passed for two touchdowns and ran for a third in his second straight start, all in the first three quarters. He was 11-of-13 passing and said the fumble resulted from "a misunderstanding." "Something weve got to get better on," Sims said. "We did what we had to do and moved to the next play, and thats a good thing you look out of it, look back at it (Sunday) and learn from it." Coker went 15-of-24 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 Halls 8-year-old school record with 13 catches. It was his fourth straight 100-yard game, one shy of Halls school record, and his second in a row with double-digit receptions. The Tide outgained the Owls 620-145. Florida Atlantic had allowed 784 yards in the opening 55-7 loss to No. 19 Nebraska. The Owls got $1 million paydays for each game, though. Florida Atlantic played without starting quarterback Jaquez Johnson, who injured his non-throwing left shoulder against Nebraska. Greg Hankerson was 12-of-19 passing for 88 yards. "We had several freshmen on the field playing against some of the best players in the nation," Owls coach Charlie Partridge said. Sims got Alabama rolling early, leading the Tide to three touchdown drives in the first quarter. He ran for a 7-yard score then launched a 52-yarder to Cooper and a 39-yarder to Kenyan Drake. Sims completed eight of his first nine passes and the incompletion was on a dropped ball. His other incompletion came when Cooper couldnt bring in a deflected pass in the end zone. Coker entered the game late in the quarter after Alabama recovered a fumble across midfield. The Tide got a field goal out of it. Coker added a 3-yard touchdown pass to Jalston Fowler, set up by his 15-yard run on the previous play. Both quarterbacks employed a similar strategy: Get the ball to Cooper as often as possible. Coker threw two screen passes to him on his first drive and they failed to connect in the end zone on third down. Alabama also gained 204 yards on the ground among eight rushers. T.J. Yeldon (43 yards) and Kenyan Drake (45) both got seven carries. Jay Warren ran for 56 yards on nine carries to lead Florida Atlantic. Saban said he and the players would rather have finished the game, but that it was a good decision to halt it. Thunder echoed through the sky, and many fans had already left. The ones that remained scurried for the exits when play was paused. "Its the first time Ive ever had a game called off and its the first time I ever beat the media to the press conference," Saban joked. Tom Seaver Jersey

A wide-open, highly competitive and mistake-filled season has followed.MIAMI -- The University of Miami reacted swiftly Tuesday after sexual battery charges were brought against two of its football players, immediately dismissing both from the Hurricanes team and suspending them as students. JaWand Blue and Alexander Figueroa, both 20-year-old sophomore linebackers, are accused of getting a 17-year-old girl drunk the night of July 5 and then repeatedly raping her at an on-campus residential hall. Each is charged with sexual battery on a physically helpless victim, and Figueroa is also charged with possessing a stolen or forged drivers license. Court records did not list an attorney for either man. But University President Donna Shalala and Blake James, the schools athletic director, each issued statements condemning sexual assault. Shalala said she had spoken with the victim, a Miami student who was not identified. "We have zero tolerance for sexual assault and gender-based violence," Shalala said. "There is no confusion about our responsibility as a university: we will fully and compassionately support the victim of sexual assault." The statement from James said: "Any allegation of sexual assault is extremely serious, and the university will not tolerate conduct that threatenss the sanctity and safety of our students and our campus.ddddddddddddquot; Tuesdays strong reaction by University of Miami officials comes as the U.S. Education Department conducts a civil rights probe into whether Florida State adequately investigated sexual assault allegations last year against one of its football players, quarterback Jameis Winston. The Florida State investigation resulted in no criminal charges against Winston, who won the Heisman Trophy while leading the Seminoles to the national championship. Blue and Figueroa were jailed in lieu of $10,000 bail each and, if released, they will be banned from the Miami campus. The Coral Gables police report said the victim first reported the assault to university police, which turned to the Coral Gables department to investigate. The two turned themselves in Tuesday and admitted "buying and administering several alcohol beverages" for the victim and then performing sex acts without her consent, the police report says. Blue, a native of Boca Raton, registered one tackle in the two games in which he played last year. Figueroa, from Stafford, Va., was listed as a possible starter on the Hurricanes depth chart and made 17 tackles in nine games last year.
