Alabama scored a 76-yard touchdown on the first play from scrimmage and racked up over 600 yards of offense, as the Crimson Tide cruised past Arkansas, 65-31. "This is a different team with its own identity", Saban said.

Alabama generated 639 yards of total offense.

That opportunity increased even more when Boyd swept 32 yards around the left side down to the Alabama 5. 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. Storey hit C.J. O'Grady with an 8-yard pass in the corner of the end zone.

Diggs, a first-year starter as a junior, has played well to this point in the season, compiling 20 tackles and an interception.

"Our message for this football team moving forward is we're going to come back in here (Sunday) and we're going to hit reset", Morris said.

Backup quarterback Cole Kelley threw the second touchdown, faking the run before pulling up and firing a 3-yard pass to O'Grady.

Despite quickly falling behind 21-0, there was actually a chance to Arkansas to make it interesting at one point early in the second quarter. 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.

The Razorbacks did get two TDs inside the final 10 minutes.

Alabama was the beneficiary of two fumbles near the north end zone in a span of 13 minutes in the first half. Warren ran 78 yards on the return, making kicker Joseph Bulovas miss before Nigel Knott ran him out of bounds at the Crimson Tide 22. Alabama is also with freshman defensive back Jalyn Armour-Davis, who suffered a season-ending knee injury last month. "It's a six-game season, and we're going to focus on us; we're going to focus on what we've been focusing on the last three and a half, four weeks and that's just us getting better".
