TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — Alabama football conducted a one-hour workout in shells on Monday afternoon on the Thomas-Drew Practice Fields following the Tide’s first conference win of the 2022 campaign.

Practice for the Crimson Tide will continue on Tuesday as the team prepares for its first SEC roadtrip of the season. Alabama will head to Fayetteville to take on the Arkansas Razorbacks this Saturday, Oct. 1. The top-25 matchup is scheduled for a 2:30 p.m. CT kickoff on CBS.

Head coach Nick Saban shared his thoughts on the Vanderbilt game and early views on Arkansas during his opening statement during Monday's press conference.

"We had a good start in the SEC. I think we played better in the last game. Paid better attention to detail. Had more success when we did. And when we didn't, we probably didn't have as much success, but we were very consistent for the most part in how we executed offensively, defensively and on special teams.

"Still things that we need to improve on. We need to show that we can sort of build on this and show progress as a team, individually and collectively. This is a very dangerous team we're playing in Arkansas. They have a very, very good team. Coming off a tough loss.

"They make a lot of explosive plays. KJ Jefferson is dual threat-wise big, strong, really good passer. They've got a lot of quarterback runs, which create another gap on defense. And to go with that, they have great play-action passes. They make a lot of explosive plays. Sam's done a great job there, to me. They play with toughness. They run the ball effectively, stop the run on defense. I mean, their guys play hard. They've got a real culture there that shows great intangibles.

"Their defense is good. So this is a really, really good all around team. And it's going to take great preparation on our part to go on the road and be able to play the way we need to play against a very good SEC team."
