I had some Internet problems this week that kept me from doing a full write up on the game, but I at least wanted to get ON THE RECORD with my official pick before kickoff. Basically, I was temporarily insane when I made my preseason prediction on this one. I can't pick ARKANSAS to beat Bama. Come on. They struggled to hit 30 against Georgia. No way they're getting that much against the Tide, let alone the 40+ I called for. So for a variety of reasons I don't have time ro get into now, the new pick is:
Alabama 31, Arkansas 27
Should still be a nailbiter, though.
