Arkansas covers muffed punt by Bama (0:40)

Alex Scarborough ESPN Staff Writer 

Damien Harris doesn't get a ton of attention, but he's quietly one of the better running backs in college football. He's up to 9 TDs and is averaging better than 8 yards per carry this season.

Alex Scarborough ESPN Staff Writer 

We've got a feisty Nick Saban tonight. Although Alabama already leads by double digits, he's had one spirited discussion with Jalen Hurts and OC Brian Daboll after a botched third down, and he's chewed out LB Mack Wilson for incurring a penalty on kickoff coverage. And it's not even halfway through the first quarter.
