Arkansas first-year coach Chad Morris, who recruited and coached Deshaun Watson at Clemson, had high praise for Tagovailoa. Backup tight end Cheyenne O'Grady caught seven of those passes for 48 yards and went into the end zone twice.

The Hogs proceeded to put together an 11-play 75-yard drive, with Storey completing 6-of-8 passes on that series.

Technically though, Tagovailoa still received credit for the touchdown pass, so he opened the game with a ideal completion percentage for two scores.

Alabama plays at Arkansas Saturday afternoon in Fayetteville. Their last nine opponents averaged only 5.1 first-half points. On the first, Arkansas cornerback Ryan Pulley stripped tight end Irv Smith after a 47-yard gain to the 12.

Alabama made it 21-0 on its third offensive series after forcing a three-and-out on defense.

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

Perhaps the costliest turnover came when Arkansas, after falling behind 21-0, was able to get on the scoreboard late in the first quarter and had just gotten the ball back when the Razorback defense stopped Alabama on a fourth-and-1 running play at its own 43.

Tagovailoa has thrown one more touchdown pass (18) than Greg McElroy threw in Alabama's entire 2009 national championship season.

The sophomore quarterback went 10-of-12 for 334 yards and four touchdowns in just two quarters for Alabama to give the team a commanding 41-14 lead at the break. Warren ran 78 yards on the return, making kicker Joseph Bulovas miss before Nigel Knott ran him out of bounds at the Crimson Tide 22. The ball popped free and bounced forward, and trailing Alabama receiver Henry Riggs picked it up as he rolled into the end zone for a touchdown. Alabama has returned four interceptions for touchdowns this season.

The Tide used double that number to score on a 59-yard fumble play touchdown in 50 seconds on their second series.

That's 30.4 yards per attempt, people.
