Another easy day, win for Tua, Tide

Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa bolstered his credentials in the Heisman Trophy race by averaging 33.4 yards per completion and 25.7 yards per attempt.

Every week Alabama seemingly reaches another milestone with yet another blowout.

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

A potential score would have closed the gap to 21-14 but instead Alabama went 99 yards on the ensuing drive to make it a 28-7 game and the route was on.

Nick Saban still wasn't happy, because Bryant-Denny Stadium wasn't packed out, mainly the student section that had noticeably empty seats.

"I can't make any comparisons".

It's one thing for Saban to say it. You show up for the game and you support your team.

In case you haven't heard, Tua Tagovailoa is really good at football. "We're obviously playing better on offense than we are on defense".

The replay booth also overturned the ruling on the field that Damien Harris had not broken the plane of the end zone on a fourth-down leap at the end of Alabama's first series of the second half. He has yet to throw a fourth-quarter pass as Alabama has outscored its opponents by a combined 336-96. I think we're trying to address that. The student section was half-full for Alabama's 56-14 home victory over Louisiana Lafayette last week. 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.

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

Defensively, Saban said the Tide has a lot of work to do to meet the level of play the offensive is playing at.

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. "That's all you can ask for, and you've got to give credit to the coaches, the way we scheme them up and I thought we had a lot of great stuff going in".
