The Crimson Tide scored a touchdown on the very first play from scrimmage, and also had two TDs in their first three plays.

"We gave up three turnovers for 21 points and that's hard, and a team like Alabama, they don't need any help", Morris said.

Alabama generated 639 yards of total offense.

He opened the game with a insane stat line: He threw 2-for-2 for 123 yards and two touchdowns. The 59-yard gain was ruled a 12-yard touchdown pass from Tua Tagovailoa to Ruggs as a continuation pass play, rather than a fumble recovery touchdown as the NCAA statistics manual used to dictate.

How to watch Packers vs. Lions
Would the Packers, who fell to 2-2-1, consider making a change? You put all that together and it's a lot of points we gave them. Both of these teams have been moving the ball at a similar pace, with Detroit having outgained Green Bay by -37 yards.


Ty Storey threw an 8-yard pass to Cheyenne O'Grady to put the Razorbacks on the board.

Jeudy got half a step on Ryan Pulley on a crossing route, caught a pass in stride, shook Pulley's tackle attempt and outran safety Santos Ramirez around the corner on a 60-yard touchdown that effectively sealed the outcome with 1:38 left in the first half.

Saban, who saw his team allow 14 four-quarter points, said hasn't seen anything like this team during his 12 seasons at Alabama, which hosts Missouri next week.

After forcing a fumble on the Razorbacks first possession, Alabama got the ball back. De'Vion Warren's nice sliding 17-yard touchdown reception from Storey came against backups in the fourth quarter and Kelley added a one-yard touchdown run to cover the 35-point spread.

Arsenal legend praises Pogba contribution in Manchester United comeback win
After the forthcoming global break, their next six games include matches against Chelsea, Juventus twice and Manchester City . "It's ridiculous talk to say they don't play for the manager, they play for the club".


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

Alabama increased its national lead in touchdown drives of less than two minutes by adding four scores fitting that description against the Razorbacks.

The Hogs will travel to Little Rock next Saturday to take on Ole Miss, seeking to continue a recent trend of finding ways to pull out wins against the Rebels.

If you don't have speed then you're chasing speed, Morris said that day.

Arsenal boss Emery on Cech: We'll know more Sunday
Sport Mediaset claim Napoli star Zielinski is the player Emery wants to bring in to take over the midfield mantle from Ramsey. Arsenal want to sell Ramsey in January, as they will be unable to collect a transfer fee once his contract expires in June.


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.
