NASHVILLE, Tennessee (Ticker) -- Vanderbilt probably wishes its series against Alabama would go on probation.
Tyler Watts accounted for 231 total yards and a touchdown as Alabama continued its dominance of Southeastern Conference rival Vanderbilt with a 30-8 victory.
On probation for the next two seasons, Alabama has beaten Vanderbilt 18 straight times while winning 41 of the last 43 meetings since 1961. The Crimson Tide leads the all-time series, 57-19-4.
The Crimson Tide (7-2, 4-1 SEC West) continued their impressive season despite the distractions behind Watts, who has split time at quarterback this season with Brodie Croyle.
Watts opened the scoring with 10:04 left in the first quarter, capping a 10-play, 78-yard drive with an 11-yard TD run. He rushed for 55 yards and completed 15-of-21 passes for 176 yards.
Kyle Robinson kicked field goals of 36 and 22 yards in the second quarter, extending the lead to 13-0. Alabama held a commanding 210-45 edge in total yards in the first half.
Shaud Williams added a nine-yard TD run in the third quarter before Robinson kicked his third field goal and Croyle threw a 41-yard touchdown pass Dre Fulgham for a 30-0 advantage.
Jay Cutler threw a 10-yard TD pass to Dan Stricker in the fourth quarter for the Commodores (2-7, 0-5 East), who have not beaten the Crimson Tide since 1984.
Cutler went just 7-of-18 for 116 yards and an interception.
