College Football Week 3: #1 Alabama At #8 Arkansas
|Nick Saban didn’t run up the score against Western Kentucky, winning 35-0. His talented squad enters SEC play 2-0 and ranked No. 1 in the country.||Coaching||Bobby Petrino put Arkansas in a tough spot and the result is interim head coach John L. Smith, who left his alma mater, Weber State, after not coaching a single game there.|
|A.J. McCarron has thrown his name into the Heisman discussion. The junior quarterback was 14 of 19 with four touchdowns last week, completing passes to seven different Tide receivers. Alabama’s committee of running backs was once again effective.||Offense||Tyler Wilson did not play in the second half of last week’s shocking upset to Louisiana-Monroe with a possible concussion; his status for Saturday is uncertain. His replacement, Brandon Allen, was just 6-of-20, so the Razorbacks will rely on running back Knile Davis if Wilson can’t go.|
|Alabama appears to have one of the best defenses in the country once again. After shutting down Denard Robinson and Michigan, the Crimson Tide pitched a shutout against Western Kentucky, allowing just 224 yards.||Defense||550. That’s how many yards Arkansas allowed to Louisiana-Monroe, a team that finished under .500 in the Sun Belt last year. Kolton Browning lit up the Arkansas secondary for more than 400 yards through the air.|
|Alabama is solid all-around in their special teams. Last week, their punter ran for a first down on fourth-and-18.||Special Teams||Junior Zach Hocker and senior Dylan Breeding are a dynamic duo at kicker and punter, respectively.|
