OUR PREDICTION: Arkansas is going to rely on its running game to try and win the time of possession battle, limit turnovers and keep its defense fresh against an inexperienced but dynamic Alabama offense. If the strategy works, then the Razorbacks should stay within the two touchdowns and cover versus the Crimson Tide. If the Hogs do have to throw, junior signal-caller Austin Allen has played well, throwing for 1,232 yards and 12 touchdowns to just two interceptions. This is a lot of points to hand a home dog.
