Bold predictions for Alabama football vs. Arkansas

3. Malachi Moore will get an interception

Malachi Moore is the most productive player on the Tide’s defense. For the secondary, production does not always mean that you are playing the best. Patrick Surtain has likely been Alabama’s best defender, but teams are simply avoiding him due to his talent. Because of that, opposing offenses have tried to pick on the freshman slot corner. So far, that has not worked.

Moore leads the team in interceptions and has scored from a turnover. His ball skills are elite, and he is just getting started. He was a snub for the Thorpe Award, but he is still one of the best defensive backs in all of college football.

Moore always seems to be in the right place at the right time. Going up against a struggling Arkansas offense, I expect Moore will be doing more of the same. He will certainly impact this game in some way. I expect it will be with an interception.

Once the football is in Moore’s hands, anything can happen. He is a threat to score on any play, so he might add another non-offensive touchdown to his freshman resume. His development has been crucial for the Alabama football team in general, but the defense has especially stepped up because of his growth.

Expect great things from Malachi Moore in the future, but you can also expect some highlights against the Hogs.
