No. 1 Alabama Rolls Over Arkansas

"But Patrick [Surtain II] has played quite a bit at his position, so we do have two guys that do have some experience", he said. "We gave up entirely too many big plays and I thought when you saw the ball in space, you definitely saw the true team speed that they have when they get the ball in space and they were able to make some major plays there". Tagovailoa hit Jerry Jeudy for scoring strikes of 42 and 60 yards in the second quarter.

Arkansas converted 6 of 12 third-down plays against Alabama, its best percentage of the year. Tagovailoa threw a short pass in the right flat to Smith, who broke free and went down the sideline, completing a 76-yard touchdown with only 21 seconds elapsed.

"We made a lot of mistakes on defense", said Saban after giving up 405 yards to Arkansas (1-5, 0-3). He has yet to throw a fourth-quarter pass as Alabama has outscored its opponents by a combined 336-96.

"I think the fans are getting so entitled there at Alabama, specifically the students,"the former Heisman Trophy victor said Friday". The 59-yard gain was ruled a 12-yard touchdown pass from Tua Tagovailoa to Ruggs as a continuation pass play, rather than a fumble recovery touchdown as the NCAA statistics manual used to dictate. We're obviously very thin.

Alabama built leads of 21-0 and 34-14.

Alabama was the beneficiary of two fumbles near the north end zone in a span of 13 minutes in the first half.

Alabama increased its national lead in touchdown drives of less than two minutes by adding four scores fitting that description against the Razorbacks.

The first score was an eight-yard pass from Ty Storey, capping a methodical 11-play, 75-yard drive that featured three catches by O'Grady. The drive, beginning at the 22-yard line, was set up by a 78-yard punt return from De'Vion Warren.

Arkansas' next TD came after Alabama's 99-yard drive. But you say you're the best fans in college football, well you need to show up.
