No. 1 Alabama Rolls Over Arkansas

Nick Saban finds way to declare defeat in Alabama's blowout

Nick Saban finds way to declare defeat in Alabama's blowout

Alabama scored a 76-yard touchdown on the first play from scrimmage and racked up over 600 yards of offense, as the Crimson Tide cruised past Arkansas, 65-31. "Three of those guys are defensive backs", Saban said.

Alabama generated 639 yards of total offense. Even when Alabama made mistakes the result was at times successful.

Storey finished the game 25-of-39 for 230 yards and two touchdowns while throwing an interception. Storey hit C.J. O'Grady with an 8-yard pass in the corner of the end zone. 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. Senior tailback Damien Harris ran for 111 yards and two TDs while receiver Jerry Jeudy and tight end Irv Smith Jr. combined for 258 yards receiving and three TDs.

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

De'Vion Warren had called fair catch or taken a touchback on 10 consecutive kickoffs and had not caught a pass on Saturday until the final nine minutes. On the Crimson Tide's second possession, Tagovailoa hit Smith again, and the 6-foot-4 junior ripped off another big gain before he was stripped from behind by Ryan Pulley.

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. Henry Ruggs III recovered the ball and ran it 12 yards for the team's second score.

Prior to taking over as a starter this season, Diggs was one of the primary returners in his first two seasons.

Arkansas will host MS in Little Rock.

"He is a fantastic leader and you can definitely see that", Morris said.

Rakeem Boyd took advantage of being the focal back in the Arkansas offense as he accounted for more than 130 yards, including the first 100-yard game of his Razorbacks' career.
