Comments

This is probably the best SEC vs. SEC game for this weekend. If this game were being played in Fayetteville I think the Tide would be very worried but with it being in T-town they will be very comfortable. Arkansas is a tough, well-coached team. They should be able to keep this fairly close, even playing on the road.
