Radio

The usual. Chuck Barrett and Keith Jackson will call the game.

Here's the list of affiliates.

On satellite radio, the game will be on Sirius 126 and XM 191.

Lines

Vegas has Bama (-9) with an Over/Under (55).

This one's all about Bama narratives right?  Is Bama gonna roll into Fayeteville pissed off an looking for revenge after getting knocked out in The Grove?  Or, are the Tide going to crawl into DWRR bruised and feeling vulnerable to find a rested and ready to take their first SEC win Razorback squad in some beautiful (please, please, please be permanent) 1964 National Championship throwback uniforms?

I honestly believe that Bielema's Razorbacks will be ready on Saturday.  This team has looked prepared every single week this season.  Figure out which Bama team is getting on that plane Friday and you'll know which way this one is going.

Weather

Hog Heaven and Fayetteville's Walmart (and likely those guys who stand out on the street corners when there's more than a 10% chance of rain) is already selling red and white ponchos you can buy, depending on which section your seats are in, because it looks like it'll be wet on Saturday.  High is 55 with an 80% chance of rain for the game.

Notes

With apologies to those of you with tickets to this sold out affair, I'll be cheering for a downpour on Saturday.  The Razorbacks have yet ANOTHER opportunity to take down a top 10, SEC, Western Division opponent and the best way to do it is to focus on our run game on offense and minimize the pass game on defense (sound familiar?).

It'll be a shame to not be able to show off the most beautiful campus in the SEC on SEC TV's "SEC Nation" show who will be broadcasting live from Fayetteville Saturday morning, but I'll risk Timmy having a bad hair day on TV for any advantage to be gained that can end this SEC losing streak.
