Oh what a matchup we have got on Saturday night in Fayetteville! The No. 1 Alabama Crimson Tide head to Arkansas to take on the surging Arkansas Razorbacks in a game that has huge implications for the SEC and College Football Playoff.
As they should be entering any matchup the Crimson Tide are favored to come away with a win against the Razorbacks.
But a win for Arkansas would be huge for the team moving forward, and you can bet the Fayetteville faithful will be rocking harder than ever come Saturday night.
Alabama Crimson Tide
Alabama can seemingly do no wrong. After opening the season at 5-0 (yet again) the Crimson Tide have looked virtually as dominant as ever, even with a scare against Ole Miss on September 17th.
With QB Jalen Hurts looking like the real deal and the emergence of RB Joshua Jacobs the Crimson Tide are as potent as ever on offense, scoring an excess of 30 points in all their contests so far in 2016.
In fact, the Crimson Tide have been so dominant they have limited opponents to 10 points or less in all but one of their games this year.
With that said Alabama has not had a tough schedule at all, dealing with the likes of Western Kentucky, Kentucky, and Kent State. They did look vulnerable against Ole Miss and may have some exposable flaws against better offenses.
Arkansas has been a nice surprise in 2016 after finishing their 2015 season on quite the run, clearly carrying momentum over.
They had a crazy win over TCU and their only loss came to an undefeated and potent Texas A&M squad.
Still, with their other wins over the likes of Louisiana Tech, Texas State, and Alcorn State, the Razorbacks are tough to judge.
Sure they looked like they could go toe-to-toe with an FBS squad as they powered past TCU but they also looked especially vulnerable against Texas A&M in a blowout loss.
The way Arkansas could win this game is to rely on its QB Austin Allen to match Alabama’s offensive effort punch for punch.
He leads the SEC in pass efficiency and could be a deciding factor on Saturday night.

Looking at Alabama’s schedule one could say their 5-0 record is due to them pounding on much weaker teams (except for USC, who are so-so).
But this is the Crimson Tide and they are too talented to let Arkansas in this one.
I don’t think the Razorbacks have what it takes to give Alabama their first loss on the year.

Alabama’s offense has been explosive in 2016 and will continue to be on Saturday night against Arkansas.
The Razorbacks looked overwhelmed by Texas A&M and the Crimson Tide are on an entirely different level. With the game in Fayetteville I don’t think Alabama will completely embarrass Arkansas, but the game will be decided by more than a TD.
