Alabama at Arkansas this weekend has great implications for both the Crimson Tides and the Razorbacks. For the visitors, with a win they can hold on to the number 1 or number 2 in national ranking. A loss may result in either Texas A& M or Tennessee jumping to top 4 or 5, while Alabama may be out of top 4 ranking.
For Arkansas a win followed by another win next weekend may lift them into the top 10 of national ranking. A close loss may keep them in the top 25. A big loss may mean bye bye to top 25. In addition Arkansas have a motivation to stop ten straight loss to Alabama.
The last time they beat Alabama was in 2006.
Arkansas's chance to win may rest in the ability of the defense team to stop Alabama's on ground offense, whereby Arkansas must keep the score down, while they themselves steal points here and there. If Arkansas can limit Alabama to 26 points, they may have a chance to win. Go Go Razorbacks.
