Pulled Pork: Alabama 38 Arkansas 14

Alabama running back Trent Richardson rushed for 126 yards while the Crimson Tide defense sent Arkansas rushing for the bus.

For the fifth time in five years the Alabama Crimson Tide defeated the Arkansas Razorbacks, this time, by a score of 38-14.

The contest that was “hyped” for a week turned out to be nothing more than an old fashioned “pig roast.”

Defense Shines…McCarron Solid

Entering the contest with Alabama, the Arkansas Razorbacks were averaging 47 points and 517 yards per game. The Alabama defense “tied the Hogs” thanks to 10 tackles for loss, two interceptions, six pass breakups, and a total of four quarterback hurries.

While the Tide gained 397 yards of total offense, including a 200-yard
two touchdown effort from A.J. McCarron, the Razorbacks only managed 226 yards against the stout ‘Bama defense.

Arkansas starting quarterback Tyler Wilson completed 22-of-35 passes for 185 yards including one touchdown and one interception. However, the one-dimensional Hogs, only managed 17 yards on the ground.

Running with a Purpose

Trent Richardson rushed for over 100 yards for the third consecutive game, including the aforementioned 126 against Arkansas.

Eddie Lacy rushed for 61 yards against the Razorbacks including a 4-yard touchdown run.

Richardson and Lacy have quickly established themselves as one of the best rushing combinations in all of college football.
