Paul Finebaum could see Alabama losing to Arkansas
Alabama is a program that has been known for being the most dominant in college football over recent history, but it seems that could be shifting over to Georgia.
The Crimson Tide looked beatable in their narrow 20-19 win over Texas — a team they were favored to defeat by a larger margin — and it’s easy to get the sense they might not finish out as top dog. College football analyst Paul Finebaum recently said he could see Arkansas being a team that defeats Alabama.
“This is probably the toughest game Alabama is going to have,” Finebaum said. “At least until the SEC Championship game. I’m locked into this. The idea of Alabama potentially losing this game. I realize they’re a 16, 17-point favorite.”
Alabama heads into this one coming off of a strong 55-3 win over the Vanderbilt Commodores, but with the amount of success Arkansas has had as a program on the rise coupled with some of Alabama’s shakiness, it’s certainly not out of the picture for Arkansas to get a win here even though it won’t be easy.
Arkansas most recently lost a close matchup to Texas A&M, falling 23-21, so it will be interesting to see how the team bounces back. Both squads are set to kick off at 2:30 p.m. CT on Saturday in Fayetteville, Arkansas.
