KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- Amari Cooper caught nine passes for a school-record 224 yards and scored two touchdowns to help No. 4 Alabama beat Tennessee 34-20 on Saturday night for its eighth consecutive victory in the series. This game marked a return to Neyland Stadium for Alabama offensive co-ordinator Lane Kiffin, who coached Tennessee in 2009 and angered Volunteers fans by leaving for Southern California after only one season. Kiffins offence produced touchdowns on four of its first five series -- including Coopers 80-yard touchdown catch on Alabamas first play from scrimmage -- as the Crimson Tide (7-1, 4-1 SEC) raced to a 27-0 lead. Tennessee (3-5, 0-4) got back into the game thanks to quarterback Joshua Dobbs, who provided a spark after entering the game on Tennessees third possession. Dobbs helped the Vols cut the lead to 27-17 in the third quarter before Alabamas Derrick Henry stopped Tennessees momentum with a 28-yard touchdown run. Coopers 224 yards receiving broke the school single-game record set by Julio Jones, who had 221 yards receiving in a 41-10 victory over Tennessee in 2010. By the end of the first quarter, Cooper already had five catches for 185 yards and two touchdowns. The biggest suspense leading into the game was how the sellout crowd of 102,455 would treat Kiffin. As fans tailgated before the game, a plane flew overhead with the message Go Vols Beat Kiffin. One banner hanging from a parking garage featured Tennessee coach Butch Jones face along with the message Lane Kiffin? Never Heard of Her. At a rock on campus where students often paint various messages, the faces of Jones and Kiffin were featured with the word future by Jones and a crude remark next to Kiffin. Hours before the opening kickoff, all references to Kiffin on the rock were blacked out. Alabamas team arrived at Neyland Stadium amid heavy security, but about 80 per cent of the 1,000 or so fans who gathered to watch Alabamas players and coaches step off the team bus were Tide supporters. A few of them screamed Lane as Kiffin headed into the locker room. Kiffins offence wasted no time making an impact. On Alabamas first play from scrimmage, Cooper caught a short pass from Blake Sims, ran to his right and raced 80 yards down the Tide sideline. Cooper reached the end zone again on Alabamas second series with a 41-yard reception down the left sideline. He added a 30-yard catch on Alabamas third series to set up T.J. Yeldons 1-yard touchdown run. Alabama gained 249 yards and scored three touchdowns on its first three possessions. Tennessee didnt go away thanks to its own surprisingly potent offence. The Vols entered the night having failed to score a touchdown in their last two SEC games, and they had to face Alabama without three injured starters: Worley, left guard Marcus Jackson and right tackle Coleman Thomas. But the Vols moved the ball effectively behind Dobbs, who threw for 192 yards and two touchdowns while also rushing for 75 yards on 19 carries. Nathan Peterman actually opened the game as Tennessees quarterback, but Dobbs came on midway through the first quarter and stayed the rest of the way. Tennessee scored 10 points in the final 7:03 of the first half to cut Alabamas lead to 27-10. Dobbs threw a 9-yard touchdown pass to Josh Malone and got the Vols into range for Aaron Medleys 27-yard field goal on the final play of the half. After Dobbs capped Tennessees first drive of the second half with a 9-yard touchdown pass to Von Pearson, a 27-point deficit was all the way down to 10. But thats as close as Tennessee would get.

Most notably, Arizonas Bill Bidwill, who saw his Cardinals go 10-6 and not get in, while Green Bay (8-7-1) qualified by winning the NFC North.While the Toronto Maple Leafs signed head coach Randy Carlyle to a two-year extension on Thursday, the contract includes a team option for the final year. Carlyle had one year left on his existing deal, meaning his new contract runs through the 2016-17 season. "Leafs are not locked into Carlyle. If things dont work out, hes gone next year or year after," tweeted TSN Hockey Insider Darren Dreger. Carlyles assistants Dave Farrish, Greg Cronin and Scott Gordon were not retained for next season. "We feel that this group can continue to grow into a higher level of a hockey club," said Carlyle during a conference all on Thursday. "We just have to find and continue to push for a little bit more from the individuals and we are going to do everything we possibly can to change some of the things that are happening with our group.&" The Maple Leafs started the 2013-14 season on a 10-4-0 run, but Carlyle worried at the time that his team was getting away with sloppy play in the defensive zone.dddddddddddd Going into and coming out of the Olympic break, the Leafs were rolling despite being badly outshot on most nights. When they beat the Kings in Los Angeles on March 13, they were in second place in the division. But starting goaltender Jonathan Bernier aggravated a groin injury that night, and though it was not considered serious at the time, it proved to be devastating. James Reimer lost five straight games and was pulled March 23 against the New Jersey Devils before Bernier returned and lost three more. The final night of that losing streak, March 29 against the Detroit Red Wings, was effectively the death knell for Torontos playoff hopes. ' ' '
