Hello everybody and welcome to the liveblog of the Crimson Tide and the Razorbacks. My name is Maxwell Hubert(@teedotyankee) and I will be following tonight's matchup with all of you out there.

A.J. McCarron passed for 219 yards with 4 touchdowns. Kevin Norwood and Christion Jones each caught 2 TD passes from McCarron.

Tyler Wilson had 196 passing yards with 2 TDs and a pick. Back up Brandon Allen 85 yards with 1 touchdown and 1 interception. Wilson suffered a head injury that will keep him out of Saturday’s match.
