Arkansas Razorbacks vs Alabama Crimson Tide Open Game Thread

Others step up while Tua Tagovialoa is sidelined.

NCAA Football: Tennessee at Alabama
Prepare for a whole lotta Mac Jones and maybe some Lia Tagovailoa.

If you have not heard by now (welcome back from the coma), quarterback Tua Tagovailoa is out with a high ankle sprain. Redshirt sophomore Mac Jones will get his first career start at Alabama. It is possible that Tua’s younger brother Taulia “Lia” Tagovailoa may get some snaps. The true freshman has only played in two games so far this season. He can participate in two more games and still redshirt.

Ingram celebrates

The 2009 Alabama team returns to Tuscaloosa today to be honored for the 10 year anniversary of the National Championship that started this amazing run the Crimson Tide has been on under Nick Saban. Well, except for all the guys still in the NFL! By my count, the following players from the 2009 team will not be able to make the reunion because they have NFL games: Julio Jones, Mark Barron, Marcell Dareus, Dont’a Hightower, Kareem Jackson, Damion Square, Dre Kirkpatrick, James Carpenter, D. J. Fluker, AJ McCarron. Mark Ingram and the Ravens have a bye week and he should be there. How many schools can say they have that many players still in the NFL?

Alabama is 22-7 against Arkansas. Bama has won 12 straight spanning the entire Saban era.

The spread has settled in at Bama favored by 32½ with over/under of 55.
