What channel is Alabama vs. Arkansas on today? Time, TV schedule for Week 5 college football game – Sporting News

  • October 1, 2022

The Week 5 “SEC on CBS” game will feature No. 2 Alabama at No. 20 Arkansas — a game that many have circled since before the start of the season.
That’s because Sam Pittman’s Razorbacks team gave Nick Saban and Co. everything they could handle in 2021, a game that was played in Tuscaloosa and saw Arkansas nearly overcome a 31-14 before falling 42-35.
Expectations are sky-high for Pittman in Year 3, even following a heartbreaking loss in Arlington, Texas, to Texas A&M. Nothing like a victory over the No. 2 team in the country to lift a program’s spirits.
The Razorbacks will rely heavily on quarterback KJ Jefferson in the matchup: He has completed 67 of 97 passes (69.1 percent) for 941 yards and eight touchdowns to one interception, adding 274 (4.3 yards per carry) and four scores on the ground.

Alabama is no stranger to big games, having barely survived a trip to Austin against the Longhorns, 20-19. The atmosphere at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium will likely be similar — and a good test of how defending Heisman Trophy winner Bryce Young can lead his offense in a hostile environment.
Young and the passing game took what appeared to be a positive step in their Week 4 game against Vanderbilt, and will look to continue developing against what is the sixth-worst pass defense in FBS (302.5 yards per game).
With that, The Sporting News breaks down where and how to watch Alabama at Arkansas:
The SEC West meeting between Alabama vs. Arkansas will be broadcast nationally on CBS. Brad Nessler and Gary Danielson will call the game from the booth; Jamie Erdahl will report from the sidelines.
Cord-cutters can stream the action on the Paramount+ and fuboTV, which offers a free trial.
Alabama vs. Arkansas will kick off at 3:30 p.m. ET from Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium in Fayetteville, Ark.
