Tua Tagovailoa opened Alabama's game vs. Arkansas with a ideal stat line

09 October 2018

The Alabama quarterback, who received 29 first-place votes in each of the past two polls, won over the five skeptics this week with yet another outstanding performance: 10 of 13 for 343 yards with four touchdowns in a 65-31 win at Arkansas.

Alabama coach Nick Saban went off on the lack of enthusiasm the school's students showed in last week's win over Louisiana-Lafayette on Wednesday.

It took just one play for Alabama (6-0, 3-0 SEC) to set the tone as Tagovailoa, a Saint Louis alum, hit tight end Irv Smith Jr. on a pass across the middle that Smith took 76 yards to the end zone and a 7-0 lead just 21 seconds into the game.

There will also be, one presumes, more chances in the future for Price to flip this very bad script. "It's a good song". He did well in that spot in last year's playoffs and it could be what he needs to get his postseason confidence flowing.

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.

Arkansas managed an 11-play, 52-yard drive that resulted in a 41-yard Connor Limpert field goal before the Crimson Tide pulled its starters on defense. "You're not really competing against the other team, you are competing against yourself". Are you really playing as well as you're capable of playing and are you doing it on a consistent basis.

Arkansas converted 6 of 12 third-down plays against Alabama, its best percentage of the year. The sophomore was a spectator for most of the second half. I just felt like we didn't do a good job of that.

On Saturday against Arkansas, Tagovailoa nearly couldn't miss in the first half.

"Offensively, this was our best performance", Arkansas coach Chad Morris said. "We didn't play very well as a unit".

On the ensuing drive, it appeared Arkansas forced and recovered a fumble of its own, but it was overturned and Tagovailoa found Jerry Jeudy for a 42-yard score on the next play.

"I think what makes this a special experience here is when we have great support from everybody in the program, everybody that supports the program, all of our fans, all of our students", Saban said, according to 247Sports.
