FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) -- Eddie Lacy ran for three touchdowns and No. 1 Alabama forced five turnovers in a 52-0 win over Arkansas.

Vinnie Sunseri and Haha Clinton-Dix had interceptions against the Razorbacks, who played without quarterback Tyler Wilson because he had a head injury in last week's loss to Louisiana-Monroe.

The shutout was the second straight for the Crimson Tide (3-0, 1-0 Southeastern Conference). The last time Alabama, which has now forced 11 turnovers this season, had back-to-back shutouts was against Vanderbilt and Kentucky in 1980.

AJ McCarron was 11-of-16 passing for 189 yards and a touchdown.

The Razorbacks (1-2, 0-1) Arkansas had just 44 yards of total offense at halftime and 137 for the game. The Razorbacks were held scoreless in Razorback Stadium for the first time since a 7-0 loss to Baylor in 1966.
