Arkansas Razorbacks vs Louisiana State Tigers Odds

If he doesn't, it will likely be another long night for Miles and the Tigers and six in a row for Saban and the Tide.

The task becomes near-impossible when Henry, who has scored in 14 straight games, gets his shoulders squared, reaches full speed, and has only a corner to beat.

The Razorbacks know they are facing a different Fournette this time.

As he climbs the record books, Prescott will have a chance to enter the Heisman discussion again.

Last week, however, Auburn won convincingly against Texas A&M in part because of inspired quarterback play. "And make sure that they are focused on what they need to do to play just as well or better the next week, or better, against a very good Mississippi State team, that's ranked, and a very, very good team". And he has done just that.

GUILBEAU POLL: 1. Alabama (8-1, 5-1 SEC). 2. Mississippi State has never defeated top-five opponents in consecutive seasons. The Commodores had one against Florida last week, holding the Gators to a season-low nine points.

"I don't think it will be that hard this week", Tide linebacker Dillon Lee said when asked about being motivated.

Big players play big in big games. He's on pace to have 57 fewer of those in 2015. He leads the conference in total offense (302.9 yards per game) and his 21 touchdown passes leads quarterbacks in the league.

Alabama's remaining regular season schedule also sets up nicely for Henry to finish strong from a statistical standpoint.

An SEC Championship game would provide a stiffer test for Henry and the Alabama run game as the Crimson Tide will take on the Florida Gators if they make it to Atlanta in December.

Alabama travels to Starkville on Saturday and will kickoff against Mississippi State at 2:30 pm on WIAT42.

If anyone knows how quickly the landscape can change in a college football season, it is LSU coach Les Miles.

That came two weeks after Ole Miss shut down the Aggies in a 23-3 victory. If Mississippi State wants to capitalize on that, it starts with Prescott. The offense is averaging 33.1 points and 423.2 yards per contest. In the receiving end, Calvin Ridley had 51 yards in seven receptions while Ardarious Stewart added 47 yards in three receptions. Obviously, that's something Prescott is also capable of contributing.

By the contrast, teams that took a week off after their game against the Crimson Tide are 6-2 the next time out. Against Alabama, at least one blocker was overwhelmed on nearly every snap and Fournette had no chance.

And looking back at the Ole Miss win over Alabama, the key - aside from the plus-five turnover margin - was that Kelly threw for 341 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions. The team is led by QB Marquise Williams (2,117 yards, 15 TDs, and 7 INTs) and a one of the best playmakers in the country that no one is talking about in WR Ryan Switzer (35 rec, 535 yards, 4 TDs). Statistically, Prescott is a more efficient passer than Kelly, and like his in-state counterpart, he has talented teammates to target. Just look at Ohio State past year, coming back from an early season loss at home to Virgina Tech to win it all. "It's going to be unbelievably loud over there and it's special for road teams (to be there) as well".
