That has been the final score for two years in a row in the Arkansas vs. Alabama game with the Tide coming out on top in both. The Arkansas Razorbacks (3-5) haven’t scored since the very first drive of the South Carolina game and has been outscored 104-0 since then.
Alabama showed why they are the top-ranked team in the nation winning in absolute dominating fashion. The Crimson Tide outgained the Hogs 532-256 and kept Arkansas scoreless for their second shutout of the year.
A.J. McCarron threw for 180 yards and three touchdowns in just three quarters for the Tide.
Kenyan Drake ran for 108 yards on only eight carries for two touchdowns against the struggling Arkansas defense.
Alabama blocked a Zach Hocker field goal attempt to keep the Razorbacks score at zero and went into halftime up 28-0.
Quarterback Brandon Allen had yet another lackluster performance going 7-of-25 for only 91 yards including two interceptions. Allen now has six interceptions in the past four games.
Alex Collins and Jonathan Williams were kept in check once again this game. Collins finished with 77 yards and Williams with 48 which is not exactly ideal for a rushing attack offense.
Derrick Henry for Alabama, ran in an 80-yard touchdown with just over a minute left to go in the game extending the Tide’s lead to the final score of 52-0.
The five game losing streak marks the longest in Arkansas’ head coach Bret Bielema’s career and it very well could last through the rest of the year.
After a day full of upsets, including many in the SEC, it seemed to be set up perfect for the Arkansas football team on Saturday night, but the complete opposite happened. This Arkansas football team is not only losing games, but getting completely blown out in their losses.
Arkansas gets a much needed bye week this upcoming weekend which will allow for the Razorbacks to recover and maybe figure some things out on both sides of the ball. Another huge task comes to Fayetteville as the new and improved Auburn Tigers come to town in two weeks.
