FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — The kickoff time for Arkansas’ Week 7 game against Alabama was announced Monday — sort of.
The Razorbacks will visit the Crimson Tide on Saturday, Oct. 14, at either 3:30 p.m., 7 p.m. or 7:15 p.m. ET at Bryant-Denny Stadium. The game will be televised on either CBS, ESPN or ESPN2.
The decision will be made by Saturday night.
The two teams have met 27 times before. Alabama leads the all-time series, 19-8. The Hogs have not beaten the Crimson Tide since 2006, meaning Alabama holds a 10-game winning streak in the series. Last year Alabama won, 49-30, at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium.
Alabama is the top-ranked team in the nation this week and plays Texas A&M in Week 6. Texas A&M is the only team Arkansas has played so far in the SEC schedule and the Aggies won that game, 50-43.
Arkansas will be coming off a game against South Carolina in Columbia. The Gamecocks and Razorbacks were ranked eighth and ninth, respectively, in this week’s SEC Country Power Poll. Las Vegas has South Carolina as a 1 1/2-point favorite. Arkansas badly needs a victory in that game with Alabama and Auburn, which is ranked 12th, on the schedule after.
Alabama’s winning streak over Arkansas is the longest any opponent has had against the Razorbacks since they joined the SEC in 1992. The Hogs won three out of four against the Crimson Tide from 1997-2000.
Alabama leads the SEC in scoring defense, scoring offense, total offense and is second in total defense. Only Georgia is allowing fewer yards per game than Alabama in 2017. Arkansas quarterback Austin Allen played well in last year’s game, throwing for 264 yards and three touchdowns. After the loss, the Razorbacks alternated wins and losses the rest of the season.
