Alabama begins a tough stretch of games in the month of October with a trip to Arkansas on October 8 and kickoff time has been set.

The Crimson Tide and Razorbacks will square off at 6PM on ESPN. The game slid to an evening start time after Tennessee pulled off the improbable victory against Georgia with a Hail Mary pass as time expired. CBS chose to televise the top-10 matchup between the Vols and the Texas A&M Aggies.

Nick Saban has beaten Arkansas eight straight games, which is the longest streak in series history. Bret Bielema's team still has hopes of an SEC West title despite a loss last week to Texas A&M.

The trip to Fayetteville begins a three week stretch where Alabama has to play top-25 opponents and two of those games are on the road.
