The college football season is already in its 4th week of action and the cream of this years crop is starting to rise to the top. Through 3 weeks the Top 5 teams in the Nation remain unchanged with Alabama leading the way followed by Ohio State, Boise State, TCU,and Oregon. The biggest change in the top 25 resulted from our week 3 game of the week- Arizona vs Iowa. The Wildcats big win over the Hawkeyes propelled them to #14 while Iowa dropped to #18. The week we again have some fantastic matchups including 4 games that pit two top 25 teams against each other.
In this week’s Free Ticket Classifieds Game of the Week, the #1 Alabama Crimson Tide will square off against the #10 Arkansas Razorbacks in Fayetteville. Bama fresh off destroying the Duke Blue Devils 62-13 in Durham and will be looking to further cement their place as the #1 team in the Nation will a big win over Arkansas. The Tide offense has been near perfect through the first 3 games. The strength of the Bama offense is certainly their balance- they can beat you on the ground or through the air. Quarterback Greg McElroy has completed 71.7 % of his passes for 705 yards and 6 TD with only 1 interception. The receiving corps has also been strong with Julio Jones(248 yds, 2 tds) and Darius Hanks (170 yds, 1 td) leading the way. Alabama also has 3 legitimate running back in Trent Richardson (271 yds,4 tds , Eddie lacy (184 yds, 3 tds), and Mark Ingram (151 yds, 2 tds). The key for Alabama will be if their defense can slow down the impressive aerial attack of the Razorbacks.
The Arkansas Razorbacks are fresh off an impressive road win over the Georgia Bulldogs (31-24). The Razorbacks have one of the best QBs in the country in Ryan Mallett. Mallet has amassed 1081 yards and 9 touchdowns already while throwing just 2 picks. The play of Mallett has greatly benefited their trio of wideouts. Joe Adams (344 yds, 2 tds), Greg Childs (254 yds, 3 tds) , and DJ Williams (170 yds) have led the Arkansas offense and have hidden a lackluster running game. If the Razorbacks are going to pull off a big upset on Saturday they will need Broderick Green (109 yds, 1 td) and Dennis Johnson (83 yds, 1 td) to control both the ball and the clock.
