Here are some quick thoughts on Arkansas’  loss to the No. 7 ranked Alabama Crimson Tide.

What it means: It’s another close, late SEC loss for Arkansas. For the fourth time in five games, the Razorbacks had a lead in the fourth quarter, only to relinquish that lead late on a 6-yard touchdown pass from Blake Sims to DeAndrew White. Arkansas had its chances early, but fumbled on four offensive possessions in the first half and came away with only six first half points.

What I liked: Arkansas’ defense. There were questions regarding whether or not the Hogs could slow down Alabama’s high-powered offense, and did it ever answer the call. Arkansas allowed just 199 total yards of offense, 161 of which came through the air. The Hogs run defense shut down Crimson Tide tailbacks T.J. Yeldon and Derrick Henry who amassed 38 combined yards of rushing. The defense kept the Razorbacks in the game, and came up with stops late to give the Hogs a chance to win it.

What I didn’t like: The turnovers. Arkansas fumbled the ball five times, devastating for a team looking for its first conference win in over a year and trying to beat the seventh-ranked team in the country. Drives that could’ve resulted in points were killed due to turnovers, something that can’t happen for a team that struggles to close games late.

Key play: On its final drive with less than three minutes left, Brandon Allen was flushed out of the pocket to his right, threw back across his body looking for Jonathan Williams and the pass was intercepted by Landon Collins to seal the win for Alabama.

What’s next: The Razorbacks now must turn its attention to SEC East favorite Georgia, who beat Missouri 34-0 on the road Saturday. The Bulldogs come calling to Fayetteville next weekend.
