Hogs battle, but No. 1 Tide roll in 65-31 rout

Hogs battle, but No. 1 Tide roll in 65-31 rout”

But for the Razorbacks, there were some positives that came out of an eventual 65-31 loss to the undefeated Tide at Reynolds Razorback Stadium.

"We've played a really tough schedule over the last few weeks", Morris said.

Cole Kelley threw a 3-yard touchdown to Cheyenne O'Grady, his second of the game.

It marks the 78th consecutive game Alabama has defeated an unranked opponent, even thought the 405 offensive yards were the most allowed by the Alabama defense all season.

Speaking on ESPN's First Take, the current SEC Network analyst and New York Mets outfielder went off on the poor attendance in the Alabama student section for last week's game (which started at 11 a.m. local time).

After forcing a fumble on the Razorbacks first possession, Alabama got the ball back.

Once again, Tagovailoa connected with Smith for a huge gain near the Arkansas 20 before cornerback Ryan Pulley forced a fumble. Alabama receiver Henry Ruggs III picked up the fumble in stride and carried it the remaining 12 yards for a touchdown and a 14-0 lead with 10:01 left in the first quarter.

Eight SEC teams were represented in the AP Top 25 including No. 1 Alabama, No. 2 Georgia, No. 13 LSU, No. 14 Florida, No. 18 Kentucky, No. 21 Auburn, No. 22 Texas A&M and No. 24 Mississippi State.

Arkansas managed an 11-play, 52-yard drive that resulted in a 41-yard Connor Limpert field goal before the Crimson Tide pulled its starters on defense. In addition to Tagovailoa's four touchdown passes, the Crimson Tide also scored on two runs by Damien Harris and one each by Tulsa native Josh Jacobs and Brian Robinson Jr.

It was as close the Hogs were able to get, though.

As bad as the score was, the Razorbacks actually showed signs of life on offense.

"You're not really competing against the other team", Saban said. "It's a six-game season, and we're going to focus on us; we're going to focus on what we've been focusing on the last three and a half, four weeks and that's just us getting better".
