No. 2 Alabama hosts 21st-ranked Arkansas trying to secure a spot in the SEC championship game versus top-ranked Georgia.

The Crimson Tide have won the past 14 meetings, but face a Razorbacks team that has won three straight games.

The game features Arkansas’s running game that ranks sixth nationally against Alabama’s third-rated run defense.

Crimson Tide quarterback Bryce Young is one of the leading Heisman Trophy candidates while the Razorbacks’ K.J. Jefferson is a threat both running and passing.

Alabama has the national sack leader in linebacker Will Anderson Jr.

The game is at 2:30PM CST on CBS 8.
