No 2. KJ Jefferson has to throw for 325+ yards and rush for 80+ yards against Alabama

We motioned a career-best kind of a game from some players on the Arkansas Razorback football team— that starts with captain and quarterback KJ Jefferson.

The sophomore QB needs to have an outing similar to that of the Ole Miss game. In that game, Jefferson erupted for 326 passing yards and 3 touchdowns to go along with 85 rushing yards and 3 touchdowns.

The do-it-all quarterback has been in a bit of a statistical slump in recent games, which is somewhat expected in the meat of the SEC schedule. If wide receiver Treylon Burks can get open Jefferson will find him, he always does.

The leader of the offense has been doing a great job taking care of the ball, throwing just three interceptions this season, tying him for the 10th-fewest in the country.

Jefferson needs to continue his four-game streak of throwing zero picks. A clean, accurate, error-free game will be a big impetus for the Hogs having a shot at defeating the Alabama Crimson Tide.
