 In one of the biggest matchups of the season, college football fans were not disappointed by the showdown between top ranked Alabama and tenth ranked Arkansas, both considered to be national title contenders.

In his second game since a knee injury sidelined him for the opener, Alabama running back Mark Ingram (24 carries for 157 yards, 2 TD’s) was crucial in bringing the Crimson Tide to victory. With 3:18 left in the game, Ingram would score a go-ahead touchdown to make the final score 24-20.

Arkansas quarterback Ryan Mallett passed for an impressive 357 yards, but had three interceptions, one of which was thrown with 1:48 left in the game. Though stung by the loss, the Razorbacks look to get on a winning streak as they take on Texas A&M at home in Fayetteville in two weeks. Alabama returns home next week to take on Urban Meyer and the Florida Gators in one of the most anticipated SEC match ups of the season.
