Alabama rushed all over Arkansas on Saturday night, and one of the night's stars talks to the media soon after.

Sophomore Kenyan Drake and true freshman Derrick Henry each rushed for over 100 yards Saturday evening at Bryant-Denny Stadium tying a school record established last season. Last week against Kentucky, Drake finished with a career high 106 yards on 14 carries and T.J. Yeldon had 124 yards on 16 carries.

The last time two Alabama (7-0, 4-0) running backs eclipsed the century mark in back-to-back games was the 2012 SEC Championship Game against Georgia (Eddie Lacy, 181 yards and T.J. Yeldon, 153) followed by the BCS National Championship versus Notre Dame (Eddie Lacy, 140 and T.J. Yeldon, 108).

This evening Kenyan Drake amassed 104 yards on 8 carries and Derrick Henry ran for 111 yards on 6 attempts highlighted by his 80-yard scamper down the left side to conclude the scoring in the 52-0 thrashing of the Arkansas Razorbacks (3-5, 0-4). This marks the 17th time in school history a Tide duo has ran for over 100 in the same game. The feat has been accomplished for the fourth time in the last nine games.

See what Drake said to the media after the big performance.
