It’s been ten years since Arkansas last beat Alabama in football – a double-overtime 24-23 affair. Since then, it’s been “Roll Tide,” as Alabama has ransacked Arkansas whenever they’ve met. However, Razorbacks quarterback Austin Allen, 22, is giving Alabama’s head coach, Nick Saban, 64, nightmares.
“Their quarterback is playing great for them” Nick said ahead of the game, per UPI. “They are very well coached. They have some very good skill players, good wide receivers’ and good running backs.” Austin is throwing for 246 yards-a-game, completing 67.6% of his passes. Yet, Alabama’s defensive line has 17 sacks in five games. It’ll be hard for Austin to throw the ball when he’s buried into the Arkansas turf, so he better hope the offensive line holds.
The Crimson Tide better hope that they get through this game with as few scrapes as possible. This match kicks off a four-game trudge against some major opponents, according to CBS Sports. After Arkansas, Bama takes on Tennessee, Texas A&M and LSU. Even with a bye week between the Aggies and the Tigers, the Tide’s record might not be so perfect at the end of this run.
Who do you think will win this game, HollywoodLifers? Are you backing the Razorbacks as they try to beat Bama? Or do you think Alabama will “Roll Tide” all over their SEC rivals?
