(FloridaGators.com) – Tailback Najee Harris tallied 245 yards of all-purpose offense and scored five touchdowns, four in the first half, as the top-ranked Crimson Tide opened a fat lead at intermission and fended off a second-half Gators rally Saturday night to win 2020 Southeastern Conference Championship Game at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.

Harris rushed for 179 yards and two TDs and caught another five passes for 67 yards and three scores.

Bama quarterback Mac Brown threw for a SEC title game record 418 yards and five TDs, hitting superstar wide receiver DeVonta Smith for 15 catches, 184 yards and two scores.

The Brown/Harris/Smith trio keyed a Tide offensive onslaught that gashed the Gators for 605 yards.

UF was led again by fifth-year senior quarterback Kyle Trask, who passed for 420 yards and three touchdowns, plus rushed for a pair of scores, but his unit (462 yards, just 54 on the ground) just could not keep pace with the Tide.

Alabama took the opening kickoff went 70 yards in seven plays and needed less than three minutes to do it. It was a harbinger of things to come.
