No. 7 Alabama edges Arkansas to avoid consecutive losses

Fayetteville, AR (SportsNetwork.com) - Arkansas head coach Bret Bielema raced past the numbers, frantically attempting to call a timeout.

He was unable to get it in time.

DeAndrew White caught a go-ahead 6-yard touchdown pass from Blake Sims with 12:36 remaining in the fourth quarter and No. 7 Alabama hung on for a 14-13 win over Arkansas.

As Bielema was out on the field, Sims rolled to his right and tossed his score to a wide open White in the front part of the end zone.

Despite being outgained 334-227 and fumbling four times, the Crimson Tide (5-1, 2-1 SEC) did just enough to avoid consecutive SEC losses for the first time since 2007, Nick Saban's first year as head coach.
