Nick Saban finds way to declare defeat in Alabama's blowout

Alabama scored a 76-yard touchdown on the first play from scrimmage and racked up over 600 yards of offense, as the Crimson Tide cruised past Arkansas, 65-31.
Nick Saban still wasn't happy, because Bryant-Denny Stadium wasn't packed out, mainly the student section that had noticeably empty seats.
Eight SEC teams were represented in the AP Top 25 including No. 1 Alabama, No. 2 Georgia, No. 13 LSU, No. 14 Florida, No. 18 Kentucky, No. 21 Auburn, No. 22 Texas A&M and No. 24 Mississippi State.
The Tide (6-0, 3-0) reeled off a 99-yard TD drive in just five plays after that fumble to take a 28-7 lead. "You're not really competing against the other team, you are competing against yourself".
Alabama's head coach said his team "didn't really beat" Arkansas because they gave up 31 points. Quarterback and Heisman Trophy candidate Tua Tagovailoa completed 10 of his first 11 pass attempts and tossed four first-half TDs as Alabama scored 41 points by halftime. "We're obviously playing better on offense than we are on defense". He attempted only one pass in the second half.
"I thought we did an outstanding job on offense", Saban said. On the Crimson Tide's second possession, Tagovailoa hit Smith again, and the 6-foot-4 junior ripped off another big gain before he was stripped from behind by Ryan Pulley.
It was the most first-half points the Crimson Tide have allowed since No. 16 Mississippi State also scored 14 against them on November 11 last season.
Defensively, Saban said the Tide has a lot of work to do to meet the level of play the offensive is playing at.
On the ensuing drive, it appeared Arkansas forced and recovered a fumble of its own, but it was overturned and Tagovailoa found Jerry Jeudy for a 42-yard score on the next play. "We didn't play very well as a unit. Had lots of opportunities to get off the field on third down and just didn't do it".
