One of the more intriguing contests this upcoming weekend feature No. 1 Alabama and 21-point underdog Arkansas clashing in an SEC West showdown.

Coming off a shocking upset loss to Louisiana-Monroe, Tyler Wilson and the Razorbacks are looking for a quick way to jump back into the polls. The defending national champions will do what they do best to keep that from happening, as they've won five straight meetings.

Even though neither team is ranked, I am really looking forward to seeing Arizona State and Missouri.  I think that game has the potential on paper to be one of the best in week 3
