ESPN - Announcers: Dave Pasch and Greg McElroy with Tom Luginbill on the sidelines.

The Crimson Tide has owned the Razorbacks with 12 straight wins and a 21-7 overall margin. With a new head coach at the helm, Arkansas has been a mess since their opening game win against Eastern Illinois. Losses to Colorado State and North Texas did not instill too much confidence, but the Hogs have shown a little life since switching quarterbacks from Cole Kelley to Ty Storey. They “only” lost to Auburn 34-3 and put a scare into Texas A&M last week 24-17.

Alabama vs. Arkansas under Nick Saban:

2007/09/15 Alabama 41 - Arkansas 38
2008/09/20 Alabama 49 - Arkansas 14
2009/09/26 Alabama 35 - Arkansas 7
2010/09/25 Alabama 24 - Arkansas 20
2011/09/24 Alabama 38 - Arkansas 14
2012/09/15 Alabama 52 - Arkansas 0
2013/10/19 Alabama 52 - Arkansas 0
2014/10/11 Alabama 14 - Arkansas 13
2015/10/10 Alabama 27 - Arkansas 14
2016/10/08 Alabama 49 - Arkansas 30
2017/10/14 Alabama 41 - Arkansas 9

* Here is a nugget you might enjoy: Arkansas has given up TWO kickoff returns for touchdowns (TAMU, Aub) and one punt return for a score against UNT that you may remember.

Alabama is a 34½ point favorite with an over/under of 58. The Tide has gone over the point total four times. The fifth was against Ole Miss which the Tide won 62-7. The Rebs did not contribute too much to the predicted 71.
