Alabama Crimson Tide
As previously alluded to, the Crimson Tide charge into this weekend’s matchup sporting a flawless 5-0 record. So far this season, Texas A&M is the only nationally ranked opponent Bama has faced. Considering that Alabama whopped the Aggies 45-23, we don’t need to cover just how bad the Tide pummeled the rest of their competition. Nick Saban’s foreboding defense picked up right where they left off last season, giving up a slim 13.0 points per game. That gives Bama the 5th best defense in the nation. And while that might not be surprising, the fact that they wield the best scoring offense in the country certainly is. A Nick Saban team is automatically assumed to have a tough defense. However, with an offense as explosive as this one, there might not be a single team in the nation that can topple this program.
Players to Watch: Tua Tagovailoa (1,161 passing yards, 14 TD, 0 INT), Najee Harris (319 rushing yards, 4 TD, 6.5 AVG), and Jerry Jeudy (423 receiving yards, 6 TD, 19 REC).
The Razorbacks charge into this weekend’s action sporting a weak 1-4 record. So far this season, The Razorbacks have faced one nationally ranked opponent. That happened to be No. 9 Auburn two weekends ago. Since that matchup ended in a 34-3 blowout, we can expect Bama to have an even more dominant outing this weekend. Naturally, the college football betting odds aren’t giving Arkansas much of a shot this weekend. NCAA bettors shouldn’t either, considering how poorly they size up against Bama. Right now Alabama is scoring 54.2 while giving up 13.0. For comparison, the Razorbacks are barely scoring 23.8 while giving up a significant 31.2 per matchup. With those figure in mind, it’s clear another blowout loss is in store for Arkansas.
Players to Watch: Ty Storey (631 passing yards, 4 TD, 4 INT), Devwah Whaley (231 rushing yards, 2 TD, 4.4 AVG), and La’Michael Pettway (183 receiving yards, 3 TD, 12 REC).
