ALABAMA vs. ARKANSAS 2018 SEC East Preview: Click to read more Alabama will face Arkansas on Sept. 17 in the SEC opener, and the Crimson Tide is expected to come out of the bye week with a victory.
The Crimson Tide beat Texas A&M earlier this month, and this matchup should be another one for the Crimson and Blue to build on.
Arkansas will have a bye week following a bye in 2018, and it is possible that the Razorbacks could not play in 2017 because of the NCAA’s new restrictions.
The Razorbacks lost at Tennessee in the season opener, but they will return to Arkansas to face the Bulldogs on Saturday.
Arkies starting quarterback is a question mark, but he should be the starter.
Last year, the Razorback offense was dominant and led the nation in total offense.
With that success, they went on to win the SEC West, which is a nice win for the Razorbears, but it also came with a new quarterback.
Arkansas will likely try to replace him with a true freshman, and that could prove difficult.
The defense will have to deal with an increase in turnovers, but this could be the first year that the defense will get a chance to be dominant.
The defensive line has struggled in recent years, but the Razorfords secondary should be better, with several talented corners.
The game will be played at Arkansas Razorback Stadium, and we are expecting a good game overall.
Arkansas is favored by 2.5 points, but we expect the Razorbegs to win.
