The Arkansas Razorbacks were riding smoothly up until game four at Rutgers. Since then, the road has been filled with speed bumps and pot holes. 

All head coach Bret Bielema and fans could do on homecoming last Saturday was sit there and watch as the Hogs were completely dismantled at home, 52-7, by South Carolina. If that wasn't bad enough, Arkansas players have to put it out of their minds fast because this weekend, they travel to Tuscaloosa to take on the two-time defending national champion Alabama Crimson Tide.

Alabama was No. 1 for the eighth straight week when the Top 25 poll was released Sunday at noon. The Crimson Tide won easily, 48-7, on the road over Kentucky last weekend.
