Nick Saban happy with offense, not with defense

I think they're a much better team now on offense.

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. Harris finished with a team-high 111 yards on 15 carries.

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. "We had a lot of explosive plays, a lot of big plays".

The Wildcats scored two touchdowns in regulation: a 54-yard touchdown pass and a defensive fumble return.

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

Boyd is the first Arkansas back to break the 100-yard barrier against Alabama since Darren McFadden ran for 195 yards in a 41-38 loss to the Tide in Tuscaloosa, Ala., that started the current 12-game losing streak. It took the Tide just two plays to score, with a little luck on their side in the process.

Tagovailoa was given credit for a 12-yard touchdown pass to Henry Ruggs III, who actually recovered a Smith fumble forced by Ryan Pulley at the 12 after a 47-yard catch and run.

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.

The Arkansas defense finally stopped Alabama early in the second quarter on a key fourth down play, and moved to the Tide 5. "We're obviously playing better on offense than we are on defense". "I don't know exactly what happened, but I've got to hold on to the ball better". Storey kept for 4 yards on the next play, but a helmet strike by linebacker Dylan Moses dislodged the ball and Deionte Thompson recovered at the 1. Storey had his second TD pass of the day when he found De'Vion Warren from 17 yards out; then with 13 seconds left, Kelley went in from a yard out.
