FAYETTEVILLE, Ark – The No. 20 Razorbacks are back on home turf as they host the No. 2 ranked Alabama Crimson Tide at Donald W. Reynolds Stadium.
These talent filled teams will kickoff October game day Saturdays at 2:30 p.m. in Fayetteville. Fans at home can watch the game on CBS or the Paramount+ app.
The Razorbacks are coming off a tough loss against the Texas A&M Aggies making their record 3-1, while the Tide holds onto their undefeated record this season after their one point win over Texas in week two.
Despite a hot 2nd quarter, Arkansas couldn’t contain Alabama’s huge plays even with their Heisman-winning starter on the bench the majority of the game.
The Hogs fall to 3-2 as they travel to Starkville to take on Mississippi State next weekend.
With Bryce Young still out of the game, the Tide needed someone to step up in his place and today that person is Jalen Milroe who busted loose for a 77 yard gain that led to a three yard touchdown run by Jase McClellan to make the score 35-23.
After holding Arkansas’s offense to a four play drive before punting, the Tide struck again quickly by scoring on a 72 yard touchdown run by Jahmyr Gibbs to widen the gap to 42-23.
Arkansas responded on the score board with a 34 yard Cam Little field goal that brought the score to 42-26.
Alabama, not to be denied, managed to increase the lead with another huge score from Jahmyrd Gibbs, this time from 76 yards out. Alabama now leads 49-26.
After starting the 2nd half off by trading punts, the Hogs managed to bring the game closer after scoring on a 13 yard touchdown run by AJ Green to bring the score to 28-14 Alabama.
The Hogs caught Bama off-guard in the ensuing kickoff by recovering an on-side kick. The drive was then capped by a 22 yard field goal by Cam Little, making the score 28-17.
Alabama proceeded to punt after a 3-and-out in their next possession and Arkansas took full advantage. With the ball at Alabama’s 3, Raheim Sanders marched in for a touchdown making the score 28-23.
The Tide started the 2nd half at the Arkansas 55 and the Razorbacks defense stepped up big time forcing Alabama to end the drive with a missed field goal.
After a fumble by Arkansas, both teams traded punts before the Tide got on the scoreboard again with a 3 yard touchdown run from backup QB Jalen Milroe to make the score 21-0.
Upon getting the ball back, the Razorbacks punted the ball after a 3-and-out drive and Alabama ended up scoring again after a 22 yard touchdown pass to JoJo Earle by Milroe.
The Hogs finally got on the board as the first half was winding down, with a 6 yard pass from KJ Jefferson to Ketron Jackson Jr. to make the score 28-7.
The Hogs won the toss and chose to receive the ball in the 2nd half. The Razorbacks defense immediately had an impact after a tipped pass by Heisman winner Bryce Young was intercepted by Dwight McGlothern.
Not to be denied, the next time the Tide got the ball, Young hit Kobe Prentice on a 47 yard touchdown pass to put the Tide up 7-0.
With 2:35 left in the 1st, the Tide struck again when Bryce Young scored on a 6 yard touchdown run that was set up by a huge 53-yard pass to Isaiah Bond.
