Tua Tagovailoa opened Alabama's game vs. Arkansas with a ideal stat line

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.

Alabama coach Nick Saban went off on the lack of enthusiasm the school's students showed in last week's win over Louisiana-Lafayette on Wednesday.

Ty Storey threw a 17-yard pass to De'Vion Warren, the first time this season Alabama has allowed more than 23 points in a game.

The Tide (6-0, 3-0) reeled off a 99-yard TD drive in just five plays after that fumble to take a 28-7 lead.

The Crimson Tide coach was unhappy with his team's defense, despite the team not trailing once during the game. "You're not really competing against the other team, you are competing against yourself. This is a different team with its own identity", Saban said. 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 doing that better on offense than on defense. He attempted only one pass in the second half.


"I thought the story of the night was big plays", Morris said.

Alabama had two touchdown drives lasting less than 30 seconds, including Jerry Jeudy's 60-yard reception in 12 seconds late in the first half.

It was the most first-half points the Crimson Tide have allowed since No. 16 Mississippi State also scored 14 against them on November 11 last season. "They do a good job of moving him around and his receivers good a good job of finding holes".

"I don't think that we really beat the other team when you give up 31 points like we did today, at least from the defensive perspective". Didn't play together very well as a unit. Three of those passes went right to O'Grady, including an 8-yard catch in the end zone on third-and-goal, putting Arkansas on the board.
