BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — Arkansas will take on the Crimson Tide this Saturday.

This game has a lot of eyes watching because Alabama quarterback Mac Jones will make his first career start against the Arkansas Razorbacks since Tua Tagovailoa will be out with an ankle injury.

Tagovailoa left the second quarter of Alabama’s game against Tennessee last week due to an injury to his right ankle, the opposite ankle of which he hurt last season. Jones completed the game as quarterback and the team won 35-13.

Alabama head coach Nick Saban expects Tagovailoa to be back for the Alabama-LSU game next week.

The Razorbacks have had a rough season so far. The team has not won an SEC game yet, but are looking to upset Alabama and knock them off of their perfect season.

The game kicks off at 6 p.m. CT at Bryant-Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa.
