Tagovailoa stars as No. 1 Alabama routs Arkansas

He entered Week 6 having thrown for 1,161 yards with 14 touchdowns and no interceptions while completing 75 percent of his passes.

Alabama, the No. 1 ranked team in the country, did what was expected Saturday against Arkansas.

"We made a lot of mistakes on defense", said Saban after watching his team allow 405 yards to a one-win Arkansas team. "I thought we executed our game plan very well and I thought that (offensive coordinator Joe) Craddock and our offensive staff did a great job putting the plan together". The Razorbacks, who have lost five straight games since a season-opening win against Eastern Illinois, drove 76 yards in eight plays as Ty Storey found success in the short passing game.

"I don't think that you really beat the other team when you give up 31 points, like we did today, at least on the defensive perspective", Saban said, via ESPN. It so far has more than made up for any slide in defensive performance - Alabama has allowed more than 20 points just twice this season.

He is out indefinitely, Nick Saban said Monday.




In the final score of the game, Cole Kelley rushed for a 1-yard touchdown.

Technically though, Tagovailoa still received credit for the touchdown pass, so he opened the game with a flawless completion percentage for two scores. They need to be able to make adjustments in the game better.

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.

Alabama built leads of 21-0 and 34-14. The drive, beginning at the 22-yard line, was set up by a 78-yard punt return from De'Vion Warren.
