A 25-yard interception return by the Alabama Crimson Tide's DeQuan Menzie gave Bama's D as many points as the Arkansas Razorbacks' entire team mustered in the first half. In fact, if not for an early scoring drive during which Tyler Wilson looked unstoppable, that pick six would've outgained Arkansas' offense as well. Alabama leads, 17-7.
Bama has 96 yards rushing to Arkansas' negative-six, led by Trent Richardson's 65 on eight carries. As the game goes on, it's clear Arkansas is going to have to work harder and harder to move the ball, but the Tide offense has been able to make enough plays to build a lead that's got to look ominous to Arkansas fans right now.
Don't be surprised if A.J. McCarron spends a lot of time handing off until Bobby Petrino proves his squad can consistently gain yardage in Bryant-Denny. McCarron's thrown two incompletions in 12 attempts, good for 114 yards.
