Alabama Crimson Tide Vs Arkansas Razorbacks

When the Hogs took the field at Bryant-Denny Stadium last year they had been humiliated the week before by a mediocre South Carolina Gamecocks team 48-22. This year as Bama travels to Fayetteville, the 1-4 Razorbacks are reeling from a stinging loss to Texas A&M 24-17.

The Bacon Bits need to make sweeping changes under Head Coach Chad Morris. They’re really bad. So bad in fact, that Ryan McGee, Senior Writer for ESPN dubbed Arkansas, Nebraska and UCLA the “Arkansaw Corn-Bruins” and ranked them No. 5 in their Bottom 10 feature this week.

Joe Cox at Saturday Down South wrote, “Nothing bold about predicting the Tide to take down the Razorbacks. But how’s this for bold? Leave the offense out of it. Alabama will score more points with its defense than Arkansas scores for the game. Consider this a referendum both on how good Alabama is and how lousy Arkansas’ offense is.”

We’re talking about the SEC here and anything can happen.  The Tide has given every appearance of being a juggernaut after 5 games.  Today, in week 6, we are half-way through the college football regular season.  Maybe the Hogs are tired of getting slapped around.  Maybe the boys from Tuscaloosa have fallen for the rat poison Coach Saban talked about last season.  Anything can happen.

The Tide will run onto the field of Donald W. Reynolds Stadium in front of a throng of angry, disgruntled Razorback fans looking to keep Bama from going to the College Football Playoffs and losing today would be a guaranteed post-season résumé killer.

I’m not worried though.  The Bacon Bits of Arkansas are going to collapse faster than a Life Alert® customer. (My apologies to Life Alert® customers.)
