What's at Stake?

Arkansas would love nothing more than to march into Tuscaloosa and end their current 4-game losing streak along with their 15-game losing streak to the Tide. On the other side, Alabama will look to add to their 4-game winning streak and continue their journey to secure the SEC West one conference foe at a time.

Key Players Alabama:

QB - Jalen Milroe

RB - Jase McClellan

Key Players Arkansas

QB - KJ Jefferson

DB - Dwight McGlothern

Key Matchups

Alabama struggled to run the ball in their last outing while Arkansas gave up close to 200 yards rushing last week in Oxford. It will be interesting to see who wins the battle between Alabama's running game and Arkansas's rush defense. Arkansas has struggled on offense the last few weeks while Alabama's defense has seemed to improve on a weekly basis. This could spell trouble for Arkansas unless they find a spark on the offensive side of the ball.

Prediction Arkansas at Alabama:

Arkansas will keep it close for a quarter or two, but the talent and coaching differential will be too much for them to overcome. Alabama wins this game comfortably and improves their win streak over Arkansas to sixteen in a row.

Final Score: Alabama 34 Arkansas 13
