WATCH: Alabama scores on first play of game before ESPN can fix camera angles

The Alabama Crimson Tide have reached a new level of dominance. ESPN didn’t even have enough time to fix their camera angle before Alabama scored its first touchdown against Arkansas.

On the first offensive play of the game, quarterback Tua Tagovailoa hooked up with Irv Smith Jr. who took it the rest of the way for the 76-yard touchdown.

It’s just ridiculous at this point how explosive Alabama’s offense is with Tagovailoa under center this season. TV networks will have to make sure their on-field cameras are ready from the second Alabama steps onto the field, because it can score at any moment.

ESPN is reportedly dealing with technical issues related to lightning. So fans watching the game will be experiencing this very distant angle for awhile. Hopefully Nick Saban doesn’t get angry at Alabama students if they turn the game off early.
