All that said, 14 of the 31 points came in the fourth quarter when it was long over, so this is just the latest example of Saban trying to stop the media from giving out another dose of rat poison to take the focus away from his player's focus on their job at hand.

"But Patrick [Surtain II] has played quite a bit at his position, so we do have two guys that do have some experience", he said.

"I think this is by far the best offensive team that we've played to this point", Saban said of the Tigers.

Not much has gone wrong for Alabama this season, but injuries on defense are beginning to pile up.

Alabama: Some fumble issues and shoddy defense will give coach Nick Saban more than enough to complain about after yet another easy victory.

Alabama took the opening kickoff and started at its own 24-yard line.

Alabama got the ball back by forcing a fumble on the Razorbacks' opening series. 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. It took the Tide just two plays to score, with a little luck on their side in the process.

Per Sunday's odds at the Westgate Superbook in Las Vegas, Alabama leads the list of contenders at -225.

The Hogs proceeded to put together an 11-play 75-yard drive, with Storey completing 6-of-8 passes on that series. Alabama scored 30 of the next 33 points.

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. "You're not really competing against the other team, you are competing against yourself". Alabama has returned four interceptions for touchdowns this season.
