Arkansas to measure its progress against new-look Alabama
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) Arkansas has come a long way since losing 52-0 to Alabama in coach Bret Bielema's first season in 2013.
The No. 16 Razorbacks (4-1, 0-1 Southeastern Conference) will have a chance to see just how far when they host the No. 1 Crimson Tide (5-0, 2-0) on Saturday night.
Arkansas has won 10 of its last 12 games, but it hasn't defeated Alabama since a 24-23 overtime victory in Fayetteville in 2006 - losing nine straight matchups since then.
Alabama, meanwhile, has showed no signs of slowing down following last season's national championship. The Crimson Tide has won 17 straight games, the current longest streak in the country and the school's longest since a 19-game stretch under Saban over the 2009-10 seasons.
