Upon Further Review: No. 1 Alabama at Arkansas

Adjust Comment Print

No.1 Alabama cruised to a 65-31 victory Saturday against Arkansas, but that wasn't enough for Nick Saban.

"We now have five defensive players who are out for an extended period of time that were starters in the two-deep, and three of those guys are defensive backs" Saban said.

He opened the game with a insane stat line: He threw 2-for-2 for 123 yards and two touchdowns.

The sophomore quarterback went 10-of-12 for 334 yards and four touchdowns in just two quarters for Alabama to give the team a commanding 41-14 lead at the break.

The Hogs proceeded to put together an 11-play 75-yard drive, with Storey completing 6-of-8 passes on that series.

Arkansas had a chance to make things interesting in the second quarter after a Ty Storey touchdown pass was followed by a fourth down stop by the Razorbacks defense.

Alabama receiver Jerry Jeudy looked like the fastest player on the field as he caught 4 passes for 135 yards and 2 touchdowns.

It took just one play for Alabama (6-0, 3-0 SEC) to set the tone as Tagovailoa, a Saint Louis alum, hit tight end Irv Smith Jr. on a pass across the middle that Smith took 76 yards to the end zone and a 7-0 lead just 21 seconds into the game.

The margin grew to 21-0 before Arkansas (1-5, 0-3) got on the scoreboard. It appeared they got a goal line stand one another fourth down later in the game, but it was reviewed and overturned for a touchdown.

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

With some signs of progress being shown since the Razorbacks' last appearance in Fayetteville, the infamous loss to North Texas, Morris believes it's a matter of time before Arkansas can translate that progress into some wins.

On Alabama's next possession, Tagovailoa found Smith again, who ran for 47 yards before fumbling. You say you're the best fans in college football.

Whether that's three or six games or more, nobody knows.
