Challenges for Arkansas

Alabama is scary good. Facing the Crimson Tide is akin to playing an NFL team. They scored 55 or more points in three of the first four games. Most recently they destroyed a Vandy team 55-3 that was showing signs of life in its first four games. Linebacker Will Anderson is a beast. He has 7 1/2 tackles for loss including 4 1/2 sacks so far this season. Anderson has 20 tackles overall this season. Offensively, the Crimson Tide has the best in the business running their offense. Heisman Trophy winner Bryce Young is a precision passer for Bama. He’s connected on a sick 83 of 121 passes for 1,029 yards, 13 touchdowns, and just two interceptions. He’s also run from 127 yards. Containing Young and Anderson would be a good start to being able to compete with the Crimson Tide on the football field.

Saturday‘s game kicks off at (3:30 PM ET). Watch this SEC football game on the CBS Network.
