·2 min read

Through three games, Alabama has had one true test so far and it came against Texas on the road. The Tide managed to win a nail-biter in Austin. Now, their eyes are set on the future. On Monday, SEC on CBS announced that Alabama vs. Arkansas would be the Game of the Week for their matchup next week. The two teams are set to collide in Fayetteville on October 1. Kickoff is set for 3:30 p.m. EDT/ 2:30 p.m. CDT.

As for Alabama’s opponent, the Razorbacks have looked impressive through the first three weeks of the season. Sam Pittman’s squad has beaten Cincinnati, South Carolina and Missouri State. All of which were home games. With Alabama having beaten Texas on the road, it should help them prepare for the atmosphere in Fayetteville.

This game will determine a lot for both programs moving forward. The Arkansas fan base as well as the rest of the country have their eyes on the Hogs. Last season, Alabama escaped an upset by defeating the Razorbacks by a final score of 42-35. This year’s Alabama team is still trying to hit its stride, so to speak.

It will be interesting to see how Alabama comes out and performs against one of the nation’s best teams in the Arkansas Razorbacks.
