This may surprise you: The Alabama Crimson Tide are still unbeaten.

The Tide went to Fayetteville and stomped all over the Arkansas Razorbacks. Led by yet another absurd performance by Tua Tagovailoa, Alabama won 65-31 on Saturday afternoon. It’s the second time this season that they’ve scored 60+ points, and the domination doesn’t seem to be stopping any time soon.

Tua threw for 334 yards on a mark of 10-for-13. Read that again. He tossed four TD and no interceptions. We need not delve any further into this. Damien Harris led the charge on the ground with 111 yards on 15 carries. He found the end zone twice, and was one of three ‘Bama players to score on rushing touchdowns. The others were Josh Jacobs and Brian Robinson Jr.

It’s hard to really say anything else at this point. Like, they gave up 31 to Arkansas? Not great. The offense looked a little col... you know what, this is pointless. ‘Bama is still ‘Bama.

Not to be outdone, Ty Storey threw for 230 yards, two touchdowns and one interception. Cole Kelley had one throw and made it count, converting on a three-yard pass for a touchdown. Receiving TDs were scored by De’Vion Warren and Cheyenne O’Grady. Rakeem Boyd starred on the ground, rushing for 6.8 yards per carry and 102 yards. The aforementioned Kelley also scored a rushing touchdown, the lone score on the ground for the Hogs.
