"We're going to have to work to get some other players to develop and be able to play for us". "The next guy up's got to take the challenge and play well for us", Saban said.
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. On the first play of the game, the Heisman frontrunner threw a 76-yard strike to tight end Irv Smith Jr.to give Alabama a 7-0 lead just 21 seconds in.
Tagovailoa connected with wide receiver Jerry Jeudy twice on passes of 42 and 60 yards for his last two scores of the afternoon. By halftime, he had an insane stat line: 10-of-11 passing for 334 yards with four touchdowns and no interceptions. They're the biggest threat by far, especially with Oklahoma losing, Clemson with a true freshman quarterback and Georgia hasn't played anybody yet.
Once again, Tagovailoa connected with Smith for a huge gain near the Arkansas 20 before cornerback Ryan Pulley forced a fumble.
Alabama made it 21-0 on its third offensive series after forcing a three-and-out on defense. He is now 76-of-102 for 1,495 yards and has no interceptions on the year, and he has yet to play in a fourth quarter. Storey hit C.J. O'Grady with an 8-yard pass in the corner of the end zone. Alabama scored 30 of the next 33 points.
Alabama came into Saturday having not been tested all season long and that trend continued against Arkansas.
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.
"You're not really competing against the other team", Saban said.
Prior to taking over as a starter this season, Diggs was one of the primary returners in his first two seasons.
