Alabama is undefeated at 5-0 and reclaimed the No. 1 spot in the AP Top 25 following its road victory over Arkansas.

The Crimson Tide’s first Southeastern Conference test came with adversity as junior quarterback Bryce Young suffered a shoulder injury (AC joint sprain) in the second quarter. He went to the medical tent and locker room and did not return to action. Young watched from the sideline as his teammates pushed to a 49-26 victory. The reigning Heisman Trophy winner is ‘day-to-day’ for Saturday’s matchup against Texas A&M. Several players emerged for Alabama versus the Razorbacks and made huge plays.

Here are the grades from the most impactful positions.

Jalen Milroe — [B+]

He needs to tweak his mechanics as a passer, but Jalen Milroe made the play of the matchup for Alabama against Arkansas.

His 77-yard run in the fourth quarter gave the Crimson Tide momentum, and Jase McClellan finished the drive with a touchdown.
