Paul Finebaum Thinks 1 Top SEC Team Could Be On Upset Alert This Weekend

A few weeks ago, Nick Saban and the Alabama Crimson Tide almost fell to the Longhorns of Texas. Was it an anomaly or is the No. 2 team in the country beatable? We could find out this weekend. 

Paul Finebaum thinks Alabama football could be on upset alert this weekend. The Crimson Tide play Arkansas. 

Let's not forget just a year ago the Razorbacks almost upset the Tide, but fell 42-35. Could this be the year Arkansas finally gets the job done?

“This is probably the toughest game Alabama is going to have,” Finebaum said, via Saturday Down South. “At least until the SEC Championship game. I’m locked into this. The idea of Alabama potentially losing this game. I realize they’re a 16, 17-point favorite.”

The issue for Arkansas is that its pass defense is a mess. Bryce Young should have a field day with it. 

However, you can't count out KJ Jefferson and Co. Sam Pittman will no doubt have his players ready. 

No. 20 Arkansas hosts No. 2 Alabama this Saturday afternoon.
