As expected, No. 1 Alabama has made a game of it in Fayetteville. No. 10 Arkansas held 'Bama to a field goal, pushing the score to 20-17 Arkansas.

Holding Alabama to three was critical for the Razorbacks, because Arkansas QB Ryan Mallett just threw a horror show of an interception, one that Robert Lester returned to the Arkansas red zone. Three rushes later, Mark Ingram plowed into the end zone, and all of a sudden, it's 24-20 Alabama, marking the Crimson Tide's first lead of the entire game.

Now, for the second week in a row, Mallett is being tasked with putting together a game-winning drive against SEC competition. He succeeded against Georgia. Can he now against one of the best defenses in the country?

[Update, 6:49 p.m.: No sir! Mallett has just thrown another interception, his third on the day. Barring disaster, Alabama will come away with a win.]
