If history is any indication, Alabama and Arkansas fans will want to have antacids on hand for Saturday night.
According to Andrew Hutchinson of Hawgs247, Saturday’s game should be a close one.

As you see in the list, nine of those games featured the Tide, with Bama going 6-3. As the higher-ranked team, coach Nick Saban’s crew went 5-2.
The 2010 game against Arkansas featured this same scenario with Alabama coming out of that one with a 24-20 victory at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium.
