Alabama game to be shown on ESPN

FAYETTEVILLE, AR ( – The Arkansas football game at Alabama will kick off at 6 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 10, the Southeastern Conference announced Monday. The game will be nationally televised on ESPN.

Arkansas will make its 12th trip to Tuscaloosa where it will look to snap an eight-game losing skid against Alabama. The Razorbacks are 4-7 all-time against the Tide in Tuscaloosa with the last win coming in 2003 in the form of a two-overtime 34-31 victory.

Junior Alex Collins has taken his game to another level the last two weeks, putting together back-to-back 150-yard rushing games to help him rank 11th nationally and third in the SEC with 502 yards on the ground through the first month of the season. Collins along with LSU’s Leonard Fournette and Matt Breida of Georgia Southern are the only players in the nation with 150 rushing yards and a touchdown in each of the last two weeks.
