Atlanta, GA (SportsNetwork.com) - After patiently waiting for his time to come, Blake Sims more than showed he was ready for the moment. With the fifth-year senior throwing for 262 yards and two touchdowns in a near-flawless performance, No. 1 Alabama left no doubt of its imminent inclusion in the College Football Playoff with a 42-13 manhandling of 14th- ranked Missouri in the SEC Championship Game. The Crimson Tides authortative victory virtually assured them of playing in one of the two national semifinal games to be held on New Years Day, most likely in the Sugar Bowl as the top overall seed in the four-team playoff. It was also allow Sims the opportunity to attempt to do what A.J. McCarron and Greg McElroy did before him -- quarterback the Crimson Tide to a national championship. The first-year starter connected on a sharp 23-of-27 passes, with 12 of his completions going to Heisman candidate Amari Cooper, and Alabama (12-1) churned out 242 yards on the ground in dealing Missouri a second straight loss in the conference title game. The East champion Tigers fell 59-42 to Auburn in Atlanta a year ago. Derrick Henry and T.J. Yeldon each ran for a pair of touchdowns, with Henry amassing a career-high 141 yards on 20 carries. DeAndrew White added 101 receiving yards and a touchdown on four catches, with Cooper contributing 83 yards in the blowout. Jimmie Hunt racked up a career-best 169 yards on six receptions for Missouri (10-3), but the Tigers mustered just 41 rushing yards while allowing 504 total to the Crimson Tide. Maty Mauk couldnt match Sims exploits, with the Mizzou signal-caller finishing an inconsistent 16-of-34 for 272 yards and a touchdown. Sims was named the games MVP afterward and stated his case right away. He hit on his first nine passes, five of which came on a 10-play, 68-yard opening drive in which Alabama effortlessly moved down the field to grab an early edge on Yeldons 1-yard touchdown run just over 3 1/2 minutes in. Missouris offense, on the other hand, mustered a meager 27 yards and one first down over its first four possessions. But the Tigers were still able to keep it a 7-0 score into the second quarter, aided by a 43-yard missed field goal by Adam Griffith on Alabamas fourth series. The Crimson Tide had no problem extending the lead on their subsequent drive, however, as White got behind the Tigers defense to haul in Sims perfectly thrown deep ball for a 58-yard touchdown with 11:48 left in the first half. The big play turned out to be a doubly crushing blow for the Tigers, as star defensive end Shane Ray was ejected on the score for delivering a blow to Sims head well after the throw. Missouri did manage to generate something positive on its ensuing trek, as Hunt came down with Mauks up-for-grabs heave for a 32-yard gain that positioned Andrew Baggett for a 33-yard field goal that cut the deficit to 14-3. Alabama countered with another impressive offensive set, a 14-play, 75-yard march in which Sims converted three third-down situations with completions. Yeldon finished the jaunt with a 2-yard run to send the Crimson Tide into the break owning a commanding 21-3 advantage. Sims went 15-of-17 for 160 yards over the first two quarters, while Cooper had 10 catches totaling 61 yards at the half. Missouri regrouped after the intermission to make a bid to get back in it in the third quarter. Mauk escaped a rush on 3rd-and-10 to fire a 63-yard deep strike to Hunt down the left sideline to begin the third quarter, then hit Bud Sasser on a slant shortly afterward for a 1-yard touchdown on 4th-and-goal. Mauk and Hunt were at it again on the Tigers subsequent drive, teaming up for a 47-yard gain on another 3rd-and-10 play that led to Baggetts 33-yard field goal which pulled Missouri within 21-13 with 4:37 to go in the third quarter. The Tigers next three possessions resulted in two punts and a lost fumble, however, as Alabama pulled away. Three clutch catches by Cristion Jones, the last a 6-yard touchdown grab, highlighted a 10-play, 64-yard series that put the Tide up 28-13 early in the fourth quarter. Alabama then ripped off 90 yards in just six plays after getting the ball back, with Henry capping the drive by breaking free for a 26- yard touchdown run with under eight minutes left. Henry then scampered 45 yards to the Missouri 1-yard line following a Tigers turnover before powering over the goal line on the next play for the games final points.

. At this point, even he isnt sure when it is going to stop. The right-hander dropped his fourth straight decision in Los Angeles 6-1 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates on Wednesday night, leaving his status very much in doubt as the Dodgers prepare for the stretch drive.The Ottawa Senators no longer have to deal with the pressure of getting coach Dave Cameron his first victory, but they are feeling some heat from the Buffalo Sabres, who look to take another step closer to escaping the Atlantic Division basement Monday night. Viewers in the Senators region can catch all of the action live on TSN5 at 7pm et or listen to the action on TSN Radio 1200 Ottawa with coverage beginning at 5pm et. Cameron took over last Monday following the firing of Paul MacLean, and his tenure began with a 5-3 defeat to Los Angeles. The Senators (12-12-5), though, regrouped with a 3-2 shootout victory at Boston on Saturday, twice erasing one-goal deficits before Mika Zibanejad and Bobby Ryan converted their shootout attempts. You know youre in the business of winning. Its a case where youre preaching a certain style of play, and until you get that first win, theres probably always a bit of doubt or maybe a little bit of gray area, whether it works or does work, Cameron said. So it was great to get the win, for sure. Zibanejad also scored Ottawas first goal, giving him five in his last six games to go with three assists. David Legwand continued his strong recent play by netting his third power-play goal in four contests, and five of his six goals have come with the man advantage. Simple. Obviously there werent too many turnovers and playing simple and keeping the odd-man rushes down to a minimum, Legwand said about how the Senators found success. We want to stick with that for the full 60 (minutes) night in and night out and give yourself a chance to win night in and night out. Cameron said Sunday that Robin Lehner will make the start after turning aside 29 shots and two shootout attempts Saturday. He has won back-to-baack starts once this season - his first two - and is 0-1-1 in two lifetime starts against the Sabres.dddddddddddd Buffalo (12-16-2) has won nine of 12 since its disastrous start to draw within three points of Ottawa for seventh in the Atlantic. The Sabres are seeking their first six-game home winning streak since Jan. 17-Feb. 15, 2007, after a 4-3 overtime win over Florida on Saturday that was also their third consecutive victory overall. The team feels good about themselves, coach Ted Nolan said. Theyre playing hard for one another and when you do that good things happen. So right now, knock on wood, things are going good for us. Nikita Zadorovs first goal of the season 29 seconds into the extra period capped his first career multipoint game, with the 19-year-old logging more than 23 minutes after injuries to Andrej Meszaros and Josh Gorges left Buffalo with four healthy defensemen. I probably never had that big a goal in my life, Zadorov said. Its a great feeling and Im going to try to do it again. The improved play of Jhonas Enroth has been pivotal in Buffalos revival. Hes gone 8-2-0 with a 2.04 goals-against average in his last 10 starts after going 1-8-1 with a 3.77 GAA in his first 10. Enroth, though, has posted an 0-2-1 and 2.93 goals-against average in his last three starts against Ottawa after winning his first three with a 2.27 GAA. Additionally, Nolan will have to plug some holes on his backline since the injuries to Meszaros and Gorges will keep them out of this game. That means more ice time for Zadorov and Andre Benoit, who spent his first two seasons with the Senators. Ottawa went 3-0-1 against Buffalo last season as the teams combined to score only 11 goals and go 1 for 31 on the power play.
