No. 2 Bama Tops No. 21 Arkansas 42-35, Will Play in SEC Championship Game
Quarterback Bryce Young passed for a school-record 559 yards and five touchdowns and No. 2 Alabama clinched a spot in the Southeastern Conference championship game with a 42-35 victory Saturday over No. 21 Arkansas.
The Crimson Tide (10-1, 7-1, No. 2 CFP) won its 15th consecutive game against the Razorbacks (7-4, 3-4), thanks largely to the Young-to-Jameson Williams deep connection that continues to be the ultimate offensive bailout.
This one wasn’t settled until Arkansas’s onside kick went out of bounds with 1:02 left.
Alabama set up a date with No. 1 Georgia in Atlanta on Dec. 4 after a visit to rival Auburn in the Iron Bowl on Saturday. The game is at 2:30PM CST on CBS 8.
