Arkansas opens the second half of the season against Ole Miss (4-2, 0-2) at 6:30 p.m. Saturday at War Memorial Stadium in Little Rock.

Arkansas first-year coach Chad Morris, who recruited and coached Deshaun Watson at Clemson, had high praise for Tagovailoa. "It's no excuse. But we're getting better. But I'm sure there's enough people around here that would like to go to the games and we'd like for them to come too because they support the players". This is the most points Alabama has allowed in the first half.

Alabama added a defensive touchdown in the fourth quarter when Shyheim Carter intercepted a Storey pass and returned it 44 yards for a touchdown.

"I feel like the [offensive] line is playing really well", Storey said. "Had lots of opportunities to get off the field on third down and just didn't do it".

At the same time, the Razorbacks needed to play practically a ideal game to have a chance to pull off the upset. The Crimson Tide have scored 45-plus points in all six games this season, the best in program history. "Alabama students, you need to show up for your team". "That was our message all week long, we can't help".

Alabama had its way on the other side of the ball.

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.

Alabama generated 639 yards of total offense.

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

"I can't make any comparisons".

Tagovailoa finished the game with 334 yards and four touchdowns. "We've just got to keep motivating each other".

Heisman Trophy frontrunner Tua Tagovailoa hit tight end Irv Smith Jr. on a shallow crossing route and he took it 76 yards up the sideline for a touchdown.

Once again, Tagovailoa connected with Smith for a huge gain near the Arkansas 20 before cornerback Ryan Pulley forced a fumble. However, the ball was fumbled but still recovered by sophomore wide receiver Henry Ruggs III for a 12-yard touchdown return.

It took all of one play for Alabama to remind fans it was the No. 1 team in the country.

The Hogs proceeded to put together an 11-play 75-yard drive, with Storey completing 6-of-8 passes on that series.

Arkansas' next TD came after Alabama's 99-yard drive.

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

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

Arkansas will host MS in Little Rock.

It's one thing for Saban to say it.
