Fayetteville, Ark. -- Every team gets a few lucky breaks along the way. Great teams always capitalize on them.
It's too early to know just how great Alabama is, but so far they've looked dominant in every facet of the game. And they've taken advantage of every break that's come their way.
The Tide's 52-0 drubbing of Arkansas in Razorback Stadium was a perfect case-in-point.
This one looked a lot more interesting on the schedule than it did on the field. A couple of weeks ago, it was the best matchup of week three -- a divisional rivalry of nationally ranked teams. Once they squared off on the field, it looked like a fight that should be stopped in the second round.
When the clock hit zero, the Hogs has suffered their first shutout at home since 1966, the first shutout of any kind since 1995, and their worst conference loss since entering the conference.
How did it happen?
Well, in addition to Alabama being the best team in the country, Arkansas was pl...
BEST OF MAXIM
After Alabama crushed Arkansas 52-0 Saturday, Razorbacks' quarterback Tyler Wilson, who didn't play due to a head injury, called his teammates out: "As a leader it sucks to see people not do their jobs and to see things go wrong."
Arkansas definitely looked like they had a shot to contend in the SEC East this season, and one of the main reasons was their start quarterback, Tyler Wilson. But last week the Razorbacks lost Wilson to an injury, and according to sources he wont play in this weekend’s game. And if that wasn’t bad enough, the #1 ranked Crimson Tide are in town.
The Razorbacks already slipped...
Preseason expections were high for this Arkansas team despite the loss of Bobby Petrino, whose departure from Fayetteville was highly publicized, especially on this site. Still, with John L. Smith at the helm many thought the Razorbacks would compete for an SEC crown. Many thought they had the title to potentially compete for a national title.
Well, three games into the season following...
Tyler Wilson had seen all he could handle with a minute left in Arkansas' 52-0 loss to No. 1 Alabama when he asked to speak to the media afterward.
Injured players don't normally talk after games for the Razorbacks, but Wilson's case was different. The senior quarterback, who missed the game with a head injury, felt the season slipping away Saturday.
Arkansas has lost its last five games against Alabama, and it enters Saturday with the prospect of facing the No. 1 Crimson Tide without starting quarterback Tyler Wilson.
Wilson's availability for the Razorbacks (1-1) is uncertain after he suffered a head injury during the first half of last week's shocking loss to Louisiana-Monroe. Wilson didn't practice Thursday,...
Alabama coach Nick Saban says there's plenty of room for improvement even if the issues aren't reflected on the scoreboard.
He'll have a hard time convincing opponents.
The top-ranked Crimson Tide has outscored its opponents 128-14 and scored 94 points since the defense last gave up a point, with 14 seconds left in the third quarter in the opener against Michigan.
Notebook: Despite three consecutive impressive wins, head coach Nick Saban said Monday there are several areas where Alabama needs to improve. He said people respond better when things go bad, but he wants his players to respond "even when things don't go bad."
Arkansas has gone from national championship hopeful to a team trying to stay together after three games this season.
The latest crushing blow for the Razorbacks (1-2, 0-1 Southeastern Conference) came in the form of a 52-0 drubbing at the hands of No. 1 Alabama (3-0, 1-0) on Saturday. It was the Crimson Tide's second straight shutout, the first time Arkansas had been shut out...
Seventy-two-year-old CBS sportscaster Verne Lundquist may have dropped an F-bomb during the network’s broadcast of the Alabama vs. Arkansas game. Lundquist was live on the air chatting with broadcast partner Gary Danielson early in the fourth quarter during Alabama’s 52-0 romp over the Arkansas Razorbacks. It was such a dominating win for the Crimson Tide that Danielson and...
There was a time not so long ago where a case could be made that Alabama at Arkansas was the biggest game in the SEC in 2012.Then Bobby Petrino crashed his motorcycle and things changed for Arkansas. While his replacement John L. Smith has had his share of success, he's not Petrino. Especially without quarterback Tyler Wilson. The Razorback lost perhaps the best quarterback...

STANFORD, Calif. –USC did not have their national title hopes dashed in their 21-14 loss to Stanford Saturday night but they definitely had them put on hold.
They now wait for a host of other primarily SEC teams to either take their first knockdown or completely implode.
