TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Alabama and Arkansas should give their coaches a style of game both can appreciate.
Nick Saban's top-ranked Crimson Tide and Brett Bielema's Razorbacks meet Saturday night in a game featuring more old-school offensive styles. The two coaches have been the league's most outspoken critics of the hurry-up, no-huddle offenses that have become so commonplace.
Now, facing more traditional styles actually requires an adjustment.
Alabama linebacker C.J. Mosley says it's "back to old school football with us." But, he adds, "that's nothing new at Alabama."
The Razorbacks have lost four straight games and face a fourth consecutive ranked team. Bielema hasn't lost five in a row as a head coach.
The Tide has rolled through its last four games and is a four-touchdown favorite for this one.
