FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) It had been nearly a quarter-century since Arkansas had played a ranked team at home, let alone beaten one there.

No. 20 Arkansas ended both those droughts Wednesday night, beating sixth-ranked Alabama, 81-66.

The Razorbacks, once staples atop the Southeastern Conference standings, hadn't beaten a ranked team in Fayetteville while they, too, had been ranked since Nolan Richardson was coaching in the late 1990s. That was five coaches and 23 years ago.
