But after the game, all Nick Saban could talk about was how the defensive showing wasn't good enough and there's plenty to work on for them to be where they need to be when they play better opponents.

Arkansas linebackers Harris and Dre Greenlaw stuffed Harris for no gain on fourth and inches from the Alabama 43 on the third play of the second quarter, giving the home fans a reason to cheer. Made a lot of mistakes on defense.

"I think the fans are getting so entitled there at Alabama, specifically the students,"the former Heisman Trophy victor said Friday". We need more focus and discipline. "We didn't play very well as a unit".

The Razorbacks (1-5, 0-3 SEC) scored the most points anyone has scored on Alabama all season, and they also had 405 yards of total offense.

Rakeem Boyd took advantage of being the focal back in the Arkansas offense as he accounted for more than 130 yards, including the first 100-yard game of his Razorbacks' career.

With the fumble recoveries by the Tide keeping the Razorbacks at distance, the question still remains how Ty Storey was able to move the ball effectively against the Tide's defense?

"I think the fans are getting so entitled there at Alabama, specifically the students". Alabama has returned four interceptions for touchdowns this season. Tagovailoa threw a short pass in the right flat to Smith, who broke free and went down the sideline, completing a 76-yard touchdown with only 21 seconds elapsed. It took the Tide just two plays to score, with a little luck on their side in the process. "That was a key moment". "I don't know exactly what happened, but I've got to hold on to the ball better".

Kelley proved effective in limited duty. He had a 3-yard run that set up his touchdown throw to O'Grady in the second quarter to make it 28-14. 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.

Alabama scored twice in a span of 1:11 late in the half to put the game away.
