The Alabama defense has allowed 10 points or less on seven occasions this season. Four of those have come against SEC teams.
It’s now actually a point of pride to score on Alabama, even if the team lost to them. Here’s some smack talk seen at Arkansas Saturday night before they play LSU. Not sure if congratulations are in order here or not.

LSU and its offense led by Danny Etling and Leonard Fournette couldn’t get across the goal line. Fournette was held to just 35 yards on 17 carries. The Razorbacks posted 30 points on the Crimson Tide with Austin Allen passing for 400 yards and three touchdowns.
Alabama, however, still handed both teams a loss and ranks second in points against in the country. The Razorbacks have beaten LSU in each of the last two meetings. Arkansas shutout LSU in Fayetteville in 2014 with a 17-0 victory, perhaps that’s a better subject for talking trash than a mutual loss for both teams earlier in the season.
