The 59-yard gain was ruled a 12-yard touchdown pass from Tua Tagovailoa to Ruggs as a continuation pass play, rather than a fumble recovery touchdown as the NCAA statistics manual used to dictate. Damien Harris rushed for 111 yards and a pair of touchdowns, while Jerry Jeudy caught four passes for 135 yards and two scores in the win.

It took just one play for Alabama (6-0, 3-0 SEC) to set the tone as Tagovailoa, a Saint Louis alum, hit tight end Irv Smith Jr. on a pass across the middle that Smith took 76 yards to the end zone and a 7-0 lead just 21 seconds into the game.

Alabama was 0 for 2 on third downs against Arkansas through three quarters before going 3 for 4 in the fourth and finishing 3 of 6.

He threw a 47-yard pass to Smith again.

Alabama came into Saturday having not been tested all season long and that trend continued against Arkansas.

Ty Storey threw a 17-yard pass to De'Vion Warren, the first time this season Alabama has allowed more than 23 points in a game. Even when Alabama made mistakes the result was at times successful. Storey hit C.J. O'Grady with an 8-yard pass in the corner of the end zone. Alabama is also with freshman defensive back Jalyn Armour-Davis, who suffered a season-ending knee injury last month.
