Alabama QB AJ McCarron looked as calm and confident throughout the game as he did during pregame warmups.

Too easy. Alabama goes jumbo package, fakes the handoff and AJ McCarron finds Jalston Fowler wide open for an easy touchdown. #ARKvsBAMA

But it wasn't all good news for Bama ...

Vinnie Sunseri had a ligament test on his left knee, had a bad reaction per ESPN broadcast. Not good for his return short or long term.

Christion Jones hurting — looked like a shoulder — on his way to the sidelines. He does it all for Bama at WR/KR. #ARKvs BAMA
