COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) – Derrick Henry ran for a career-high 236 yards and two scores and No. 10 Alabama added a school record three touchdowns on interception returns to get a 41-23 win over No. 9 Texas A&M on Saturday.
Alabama (6-1, 3-1 SEC) built a 28-6 lead in the second quarter thanks to 55- and 6-yard touchdown runs by Henry and interception returns of 33 and 93 yards.
Christian Kirk returned a punt 68 yards for a score just before halftime and Texas A&M (5-1, 2-1) added another touchdown on a 3-yard reception by Ricky Seals-Jones after a fumble early in the third to cut it to 28-20.
But Alabama kicked two field goals before Minkah Fitzpatrick’s 55-yard interception return for a score _ his second of the day _ made it 41-23 and sealed the victory.
