Alabama QB Jalen Hurts reveals the loudest environment he played in this season
Alabama true freshman quarterback Jalen Hurts was asked by reporters which road venue was the most difficult to play in this season during the team’s Peach Bowl press conference on Wednesday morning.
It wasn’t Tennessee. It wasn’t LSU. And it certainly wasn’t Ole Miss.
It was … Arkansas.

The fact that Jalen Hurts said Arkansas was the loudest environment he played in this year is impressive. Bama played @ Tenn & @ LSU too.

Official attendance at Razorback Stadium that fateful night was 75,459, which is a few thousand over full capacity (72,000) — a strong amount of Hogs packed in one place.
Still, Alabama had no trouble in that one (something that you could say for just about every game week for the Tide in 2016), winning 49-30, as Hurts finished 13-of-17 with 253 yards, two touchdowns and an interception with two more scores on the ground.
