The Crimson Tide will be favored by double digits in every regular-season game from here on out, with their stiffest test coming in Baton Rouge on November 3 against LSU.
Alabama starting cornerback Trevon Diggs has a broken foot and is out indefinitely, coach Nick Saban announced on Monday. By halftime, he had an insane stat line: 10-of-11 passing for 334 yards with four touchdowns and no interceptions. "Three of those guys are defensive backs", Saban said. "This is a different team with its own identity", Saban said. "We're obviously playing better on offense than we are on defense". Are you really playing as well as you're capable of playing? The sophomore was a spectator for most of the second half. We do have two guys that have some experience, but we don't have a lot of depth right now. They're the biggest threat by far, especially with Oklahoma losing, Clemson with a true freshman quarterback and Georgia hasn't played anybody yet. Tagovailoa hit Jerry Jeudy for scoring strikes of 42 and 60 yards in the second quarter.
The Razorbacks saw some success on offense as Ty Storey complete 17 of his first 25 passes and had 14 first half points but Arkansas did not have near enough fire power to keep up.More news: Supporters of missing Saudi journalist rally for his 'release'
"He is a fantastic leader and you can definitely see that", Morris said. We had lots of opportunities to get off the field on third down and we just didn't do it, which allowed them to extend drives.
"You don't really beat the other team when you give up 31 points, Saban said in his postgame press conference".
All that said, 14 of the 31 points came in the fourth quarter when it was long over, so this is just the latest example of Saban trying to stop the media from giving out another dose of rat poison to take the focus away from his player's focus on their job at hand.
