Alabama vs. Arkansas prediction roundtable with the Campus Insiders staff. Breaking down what will happen in Saturday’s game between the Crimson Tide and Razorbacks.


The Alabama Crimson Tide travel to Fayetteville to face off against the Arkansas Razorbacks in a pivotal SEC West matchup. Alabama enters at 5-0, while Arkansas sits at 4-1, its only loss coming to Texas A&M. Alabama holds a 16-8 lead in the all-time series and has won nine straight games against Arkansas.

Jonathan Bass

Arkansas is good, but they were completely outclassed by Texas A&M earlier this season. There was a series late in the 3rd quarter against A&M, where with the game tied at 17 Arkansas went for it four times on the goal line – instead of taking the easy field goal – and was stuffed. A&M went 94 yards in 42 seconds and blew the game wide open.

This is pertinent because it showed that when backed into a corner Bret Bielema changed his game plan. He tried to keep up with the Joneses and was burned. This game feels similar. It will be tight, Alabama will start to gain momentum, Arkansas will make a calculated gamble, fail to succeed and then watch the Tide pull away in the second half.

Robert Judin

Picking Arkansas against Alabama is crazy … so crazy, it just might work. Okay, that was lame, but the point is I’ve seen some crazy things go down in games coached by Bret Bielema. We’re in store for some shenanigans here, folks. It wouldn’t shock me if ol’ Bert snuggly fit a helmet on and trotted out into the backfield, himself. Jalen Hurts is talented, but Austin Allen is going to outshine him from the pocket. Hurts will get picked off in this one, and Allen will toss a couple of touchdowns. Rawleigh Williams III and Devwah Whaley will tote the rock to control the clock, and Arkansas will take the lead late in the game to take down Bama. Crazy, right?

Shae Peppler

Roll Tide, roll. The Razorbacks can’t stop the run, they rank 10th in the SEC giving up over 160 yards per game. And for those of you playing along at home, guess what Alabama’s QB is: A. RUNNING. QUARTERBACK. Jalen Hurts has 3 rushing TDs so far and almost 300 yards on the ground this season. I expect Bret or Bert (whatever fits your Pig Sooie) to keep it close, but leave it up to the youngster under center to pull off the W on the road.

Brian Stultz

Wooooooooohhhh doggy, this might be a good one. Arkansas came close to pulling off the upset in Fayetteville two years ago, and that was before Bret Bielema could bring in the talent. If Arkansas has any chance, running back Rawleigh Williams III must be able to shoulder the load and keep the offense balanced, otherwise, the Alabama front seven will have a field day rushing quarterback Austin Allen. The atmosphere will be electric, Bielema will have his boys prepared, but it still won’t be enough. Alabama pulls away in the fourth quarter.
