Going Ham Podcast: Beat Bama! (Bam ba-lam)

Cory, Razor, and Jon discuss the matchup against #1 Alabama, and how the Hogs can steal a victory and snap the losing streak.

NCAA Football: Alcorn State at Arkansas Nelson Chenault-USA TODAY Sports

The Arkansas Razorbacks have the unenviable task of playing the Alabama Crimson Tide this weekend. There is no way around it, the Tide have been the most dominant program in college football for the past 10 years. And the Hogs aren’t being given much of a chance to win this game by...well...anybody.

Arkansas is ranked #16 in the nation, but comes into this home game a 14 point underdog to the Tide. How can Arkansas even hang with Alabama? That’s the main focus of the show today. Where are the Tide susceptible to the Hogs?

The Tide may have an elite rush defense, but they have been prone to giving up big plays in the passing game. If Arkansas can spread the field out and whip the football around, then the rushing game will open up and the Hogs will be able to move the ball.

Defensively, Arkansas has to contend with another running quarterback. Can the Hogs stop getting lost on read options? If Arkansas can stop the big play, then they’ll be able to hang with a less-than-explosive Crimson Tide offense.

All that and more on this week’s game preview.
