The Alabama Crimson Tide seemed to be poised for an epic titanic clash with the Arkansas Razorbacks in Week 3 of the college football regular season to kick off the SEC schedule for both teams. Unfortunately, the University of Louisiana-Monroe crashed the party and issued a stunner in Arkansas. Thanks to a Warhawks upset in War Memorial Stadium, Arkansas now looks to be firmly looking up at the number one team in the country this weekend.
Arkansas could be without quarterback Tyler Wilson after getting knocked out of Saturday's contest, and he could very well sit out today. If that were to happen, either Brandon Allen or Brandon Mitchell could get the start. Allen was ineffective in the loss to Louisiana-Monroe, allowing the Warhawks to make up three touchdowns in the second half to come back and win.
Alabama is fresh off a 35-0 shutdown performance of Western Kentucky and look to be primed to keep the winning going. If Wilson is out and the rest of the injured Razorbacks can't go, they will be in a strong position to do so.
Game time, TV channel: 3:30 PM ET, CBS
Point spread: Alabama favored by 20.5 to 21 points.
