Pulled Pork: Alabama dismantles hapless Hogs

In a contest that could have very well been 70-0, Alabama gave Arkansas a taste of déjà vu. For the second straight season, the Crimson Tide drummed the Razorbacks by the score of 52-0.
Garnering a total of 532 yards of total offense, UA churned out 352 yards on the ground. The Arkansas defense had no answer for the Alabama onslaught, and it showed on both the stat sheet and the scoreboard.
Quite literally, the game was as cut-and-dry as it appears in the written word. The only potential “drama” of the entire night (excluding injury concerns) came when the Crimson Tide defense stymied Arkansas late in the contest to preserve the shutout.
Although the opposition entered Bryant-Denny Stadium with less than a full tank of gas, Alabama’s performance against the Razorbacks was, at least by visual means, the most “absolute” game of the 2013 season thus far.

Injury report

S Vinnie Sunseri – knee
DB Bradley Sylve – high-ankle sprain (day-to-day)
RB Altee Tenpenny – toe (day-to-day)

In respect to the injuries, Vinnie Sunseri’s knee is of paramount concern, and for the obvious reasons. In his postgame press conference, Alabama head coach Nick Saban addressed Sunseri’s injury and noted, “it could be serious.”
Known as a “ball hawk” in the Crimson Tide secondary, Sunseri’s injury took place while fulfilling his duties on special teams.
