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

The first score was an eight-yard pass from Ty Storey, capping a methodical 11-play, 75-yard drive that featured three catches by O'Grady. But you say you're the best fans in college football, well you need to show up. Tagovailoa threw a short pass in the right flat to Smith, who broke free and went down the sideline, completing a 76-yard touchdown with only 21 seconds elapsed. "We're obviously playing better on offense than we are on defense". In addition to Tagovailoa's four touchdown passes, the Crimson Tide also scored on two runs by Damien Harris and one each by Tulsa native Josh Jacobs and Brian Robinson Jr. Their last nine opponents averaged only 5.1 first-half points.

Alabama came into Saturday having not been tested all season long and that trend continued against Arkansas.

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. He is now 76-of-102 for 1,495 yards and has no interceptions on the year, and he has yet to play in a fourth quarter.

More importantly, Shaw had the confidence of several hundreds under his belt when he walked out to bat for India Thursday morning. Rishabh Pant (17) and skipper Virat Kohli (72) were at the crease when umpires dislodged the bails for the day.

Once again, Tagovailoa connected with Smith for a huge gain near the Arkansas 20 before cornerback Ryan Pulley forced a fumble.

Tua Tagovailoa's had another big day at quarterback as the Tide's starter went 10-of-13 passing for 334 yards and four touchdowns. The ball popped free and bounced forward, and trailing Alabama receiver Henry Riggs picked it up as he rolled into the end zone for a touchdown.

They didn't help that cause with three turnovers, with Alabama converting each of those into touchdowns, including a 44-yard interception return by Shyheim Carter with 12:15 left in the game, which gave the Tide a 58-17 advantage.

Alabama had two touchdown drives lasting less than 30 seconds, including Jerry Jeudy's 60-yard reception in 12 seconds late in the first half.
