Alabama improved to 6-0 on the season after a 65-31 win at Arkansas behind a near-flawless performance from quarterback Tua Tagovailoa who had four passing touchdowns to only three incompletions. The Crimson Tide will be favored by double digits in every regular-season game from here on out, with their stiffest test coming in Baton Rouge on November 3 against LSU.
Alabama, the No. 1 ranked team in the country, did what was expected Saturday against Arkansas.
It nearly marks the most points scored by an SEC opponent since Ole Miss barely lost to the Tide 48-43 in September 2016.
Nick Saban's recent comments about Alabama fans appear to have roused something in Tim Tebow. "We're obviously playing better on offense than we are on defense". "We gave up entirely too many big plays and I thought when you saw the ball in space, you definitely saw the true team speed that they have when they get the ball in space and they were able to make some major plays there". "We just don't have a lot of depth right now". That's my fault. That's my responsibility. "We've got to do a better job of coaching those guys, so that they do a better job when the game comes and make those adjustments they need to make".
Saudi Arabia doubles down on SoftBank bet
For the past two years, Saudi Arabia has prepared to place up to 5 percent of its national oil company on the stock market. He made the comments in response to a question whether Riyadh needed to pay Washington more for its security.
It's the fifth game in a row Arkansas has lost, with their only victory under first-year coach Chad Morris coming in Week 1 over Eastern Illinois. "You're not really competing against the other team, you are competing against yourself". I don't care if you're playing Louisiana whoever or Hoover High School, you show up to the game and you support your team.
"When I first came here, you used to play that tradition thing up there and everybody was cheering and excited and happy and there was great spirit", Saban told reporters Wednesday.
"The good news is, everything that we're talking about is correctable".
