Will Coleman: Arkansas’ deep snapper sailed one over the head of punter Dylan Breeding to set up Alabama’s first score. Breeding kicked the ball out of the end zone for a safety, but the Crimson Tide accepted a penalty for an illegal kick.

Eddie Lacy: One play after the botched snap, Alabama’s sophomore running back powered his way in for a 6-yard touchdown.

Brandon Mitchell: Arkansas’ back-up quarterback had a catch for five yards and a run for 11 yards, and the Razorbacks were aided by back-to-back personal fouls to move the ball to the Alabama 22. But Zach Hocker’s 41-yard field goal bounced off the left upright, keeping the Crimson Tide at 7-0.
