Alabama vs. Arkansas: Complete Game Preview

Alabama will try to make it six wins in a row overArkansas when they travel to Fayetteville this weekend in the SEC opener for both clubs.

The luster for the SEC opener for the University of Alabama and the University of Arkansas took a huge hit with the Razorbacks’ shocking loss to the University of Louisiana at Monroe last weekend. 

Ironically enough, Crimson Tide head coach Nick Saban may want to dust off his rant from last week urging the media—and his own team—to still treat its upcoming opponent with the proper respect. 

While Arkansas may still be reeling from its setback against the Warhawks, this weekend's contest will likely define its season.

The Tide has its own issues to deal with coming off a lackluster performance in a 35-0 victory over the University of Western Kentucky.

When the teams met in Fayetteville in 2010, Alabama had to rally late to pull off a 24-20 win and survive a monster game from former Hogs' quarterback Ryan Mallett. So it’s possible that this game could still be the tough test most expected before last weekend’s developments.

What can Tide fans expect to see from its first conference and division game of 2012?

Find out everything you need to know about the matchup between the Tide and the Razorbacks in this complete game preview.
