No. 1 Alabama Rolls Over Arkansas

Adjust Comment Print

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.

Technically though, Tagovailoa still received credit for the touchdown pass, so he opened the game with a flawless completion percentage for two scores.

Connor Limpert made a 41-yard field goal and is now 8-for-11 in field goal attempts. We're obviously doing that better on offense than on defense.

He opened the game with a insane stat line: He threw 2-for-2 for 123 yards and two touchdowns. The Razorbacks, who have lost five straight games since a season-opening win against Eastern Illinois, drove 76 yards in eight plays as Ty Storey found success in the short passing game.

The margin grew to 21-0 before Arkansas (1-5, 0-3) got on the scoreboard.

Alabama, the No. 1 ranked team in the country, did what was expected Saturday against Arkansas.

Arkansas' next TD came after Alabama's 99-yard drive. That performance helped Alabama keep its spot at No. 1 in both major polls released Sunday. However, the replay command center determined Harris' right elbow was down before the fumble occurred. The Crimson Tide stopped Rakeem Boyd for a 1-yard loss on fourth down on the next snap. He attempted only one pass in the second half. Alabama has returned four interceptions for touchdowns this season.

The Crimson Tide now have 16 of those drives this year.

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. It took the Tide just two plays to score, with a little luck on their side in the process. Tagovailoa hit Jerry Jeudy for scoring strikes of 42 and 60 yards in the second quarter.
