Arkansas Wants First Ever ‘Red Out’ Game Against Alabama
Arkansas wants their fans out and wearing red at Razorback Stadium for their first ever 'red out' game in a top 25 SEC matchup against Alabama on Saturday.
No. 20 Arkansas (3-1, 1-1) is going into the game coming off of a close loss last Saturday to No. 17 Texas A&M at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. With 1:35 left in the game, the Hogs kicked what would've been the go-ahead 42-yard field goal, but the ball hit the top of the right upright and bounced out, which resulted in them losing 23-21. The 1-1 conference record currently has Arkansas placed fifth in the SEC West, just ahead of Ole Miss, who hasn't played a conference game yet, and Mississippi State, who is 0-1 in conference play after a loss to LSU in Week 3.
No. 2 Alabama (4-0, 1-0) is coming off of a dominant 55-3 win at home against Vanderbilt last Saturday. While the Crimson Tide has outscored their last two opponents 118-10, the team is still trying to shake off a narrow 20-19 win on the road against Texas in Week 2. Alabama's biggest problems in that game were the offensive line's inability to keep pressure from quarterback Bryce Young, the inability to get the running game going, and the team as a whole committing too many penalties (15). All of these problems were things the team cleaned up in the past two weeks at home, and now they look to prove that they were one time occurrences on the road this week.
Alabama will play Arkansas at Razorback Stadium on Saturday, Oct. 1, at 2:30 p.m. CT. The game will be aired on CBS.
