Scoring Recap: Alabama 49, Arkansas 26


FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — A week after suffering their first loss of the season, the No. 20 Arkansas Razorbacks are back at home for a tussle against the No. 2 Alabama Crimson Tide.

The Hogs are looking for their first win over the Nick Saban-led Crimson Tide. The seven-time national championship-winning head coach has not lost to Arkansas in 15 years as the Alabama head coach. One would have to go back to 2002 for the last time the Razorbacks beat a Saban-coached team — a 21-20 Arkansas win over LSU in Little Rock.

As the Hogs try to make their way back into the win column, HawgBeat has you covered with live updates throughout Saturday afternoon.
