The irresistible force against the immovable object. That's the setting for this week's Alabama-Arkansas game, as the Razorbacks high powered offense will try to crack the Crimson Tide's top-ranked defense.

Arkansas has the pieces in place to give any defense trouble, especially at wide receiver. Tyler Wilson will have a full compliment of receivers at his disposal this weekend in Tuscaloosa, with Greg Childs and Jarius Wright set to return to the line-up.

Slowing down the Hogs explosive attack is at the top of the Tide's to-do list entering their SEC opener.

"They want to start fast," Alabama Head Coach Nick Saban said. "They're going to challenge you vertically down the field, as well as get everybody running then send somebody across and hit them on the run.

"Every mistake you make in pass defense, you'll have a little bit of an issue with, in terms of getting them covered.

Alabama will host Arkansas at 2:30 on Saturday on WTVY.
