Alabama, Florida State post huge shutouts
Question of the Day
Without Tyler Wilson, Arkansas never had a chance against Alabama.
Florida State dispatched Wake Forest just as easily.
The top-ranked Crimson Tide demolished the beleaguered Razorbacks 52-0 on Saturday in Fayetteville, Ark., and the No. 5 Seminoles won by the same lopsided score.
Arkansas’ much-anticipated season has crumbled three weeks into the season. The Razorbacks lost 34-31 in overtime last week to Louisiana-Monroe, and Wilson suffered a head injury in that game.
Arkansas managed only 137 yards.
Florida State’s Chris Thompson had more than that on nine carries against Wake Forest. The speedy running back broke touchdown runs of 74 and 80 yards in the first half.
The Seminoles looked ready to go for their Atlantic Coast Conference showdown at home against Clemson next week.
No. 1 ALABAMA 52, ARKANSAS 0
Vinnie Sunseri and Haha Clinton-Dix had interceptions against the Razorbacks, who played without quarterback Tyler Wilson because he had a head injury in last week’s loss to Louisiana-Monroe.
The shutout was the second straight for the Crimson Tide (3-0, 1-0 Southeastern Conference). The last time Alabama, which has forced 12 turnovers this season, had back-to-back shutouts was against Vanderbilt and Kentucky in 1980.
AJ McCarron was 11 of 16 passing for 189 yards and a touchdown.
Arkansas (1-2, 0-1) had just 44 yards of total offense at halftime and 137 for the game. The Razorbacks were held scoreless in Razorback Stadium for the first time since a 7-0 loss to Baylor in 1966.
