Alabama Crimson Tide 52, Arkansas Razorbacks 0: The End of the Upsets?

Kevin C. Cox

Alabama will not be one of the teams upset tonight. It was never even close to happening

It's nice to know that there are some things in life you can rely on. And even on this day, one of the most bizarre days the SEC has seen in recent years, there is one thing we can still apparently rely on: Nick Saban's Alabama is a very good football team.

They proved it again tonight, eviscerating Arkansas in convincing fashion. The Tide outgained the Hogs 532-256. A.J. McCarron was 15-of-21 for 180 yards and three touchdowns. Two Bama players ran for 100 yards (Derrick Henry, six carries for 111 yards and a touchdown, and Kenyan Drake, eight rushes for 104 yards and two touchdowns), and T.J. Yeldon ran for 88 yards and a score on 12 carries.

Meanwhile, Arkansas' overwhelmed offense continued to look, well, overwhelmed. Brandon Allen was 7-of-25 for 91 yards and two interceptions. The 165 yards on 39 carries wasn't terrible for the running game, but it wasn't enough to make up for a passing game that couldn't get off the ground.

So the craziness has subsided, at least as far as Alabama was concerned. The Tide continues to roll. Is anyone surprised?
