The Alabama sophomore quarterback - who won the starting job over Jalen Hurts this year, but they are sharing the snaps - is the frontrunner for the Heisman Trophy this year, and it didn't take long for him to remind everyone why on the road against Arkansas on Saturday.

Tua Tagovailoa passed for 334 yards and four touchdowns as No. 1 Alabama ran its winning streak against Arkansas to 12 straight with a 65-31 win Saturday. "And we're going to have to get some other players to develop and be able to play for us".

"You don't really beat the other team when you give up 31 points, Saban said in his postgame press conference".

This is a tough blow to an Alabama defense that has been struggling a little bit lately.

Alabama entered the game ranked No. 1 and did nothing to relinquish that position.

"We made a lot of mistakes on defense", said Saban after giving up 405 yards to Arkansas (1-5, 0-3). The Tide marched 99 yards to go up 28-14 when Jerry Jeudy hauled in a Tagovailoa pass and raced 42 yards for the score.

Earlier this week, Alabama Crimson Tide head coach Nick Saban said he was "disappointed" with the lack of cheering from the school's student section. "We had a lot of explosive plays, a lot of big plays". 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.

After forcing a fumble on the Razorbacks first possession, Alabama got the ball back.

Arkansas had a chance to make things interesting in the second quarter after a Ty Storey touchdown pass was followed by a fourth down stop by the Razorbacks defense. The drive, beginning at the 22-yard line, was set up by a 78-yard punt return from De'Vion Warren. You say you're the best fans in college football.
