The Alabama football team practiced for 90 minutes in shells on Thursday inside the Hank Crisp Indoor Practice Facility as they put the final touches on the game plan for Arkansas.

The No. 1 Crimson Tide visits the 21st-ranked Razorbacks for a 2:30 p.m. clash at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium. The game will be televised nationally by CBS with Verne Lundquist and Gary Danielson calling the action and Tracy Wolfson on the sidelines.

Arkansas is 1-1 on the season after a 34-31 overtime loss to Louisiana-Monroe last Saturday. Alabama leads the series 12-8, but the Crimson Tide has won five straight in the series and two consecutive in Fayetteville.

"Arkansas is a good team, so we have a big challenge ahead of us," Alabama center Barrett Jones said. "We've been working on fundamentals this week. The errors we had last week were all fixable, so that's really been our focus this week."

The Crimson Tide has won 20 consecutive SEC openers, dating back 1992, the year Arkansas and South Carolina joined the SEC.

"SEC play is a big deal to us," Jones said. "We love our league. Certainly when you get to these games, everything gets turned up a lot. We know when we don't bring our best on any given day we can be beat."

The only work remaining for the Tide will be a walkthrough on Friday.
