UPSET ALERT: Alabama down 7-3 to Arkansas at halftime
One week after a 38-10 blowout of Georgia, No. 8 Alabama is falling apart against unranked Arkansas at home.
The Crimson Tide trail the Razorbacks, 7-3, with 30 minutes to play. Here’s how they got there:
Alabama quarterback Jake Coker has turned the ball over twice, with both throws coming under duress. The second pick came late in the second quarter; Coker tossed a ball too high to Richard Mullaney, and it skipped into the hands of Razorbacks defensive back Santos Ramirez.
The Tide picked up an unsportsmanlike conduct foul after the play, putting Arkansas at the ‘Bama 12-yard-line.
Allen to Morgan
The Razorbacks have been utilizing tight end Drew Morgan, who caught four passes for 15 yards and a touchdown in the first half. Arkansas has only 77 total yards, but a four-point lead thanks to a quick strike from Brandon Allen to Morgan after Coker’s second pick.
Alabama could own the lead if kicker Adam Griffith was on point. The sophomore biffed a 25-yard field goal from the right hash, and then missed from 48 with no time remaining in the half.
