Arkansas is a 6 point favorite over Team Gus this week with an O/U of 51. With Rob & Bert having seemingly figured out the Hog’s defense over the last few weeks and Gus’ offense stuck in quick sand 51 seems a bit high here folks.
…seriously, if you’re reading past the facts in the first sentence of this section weekly I’m so sorry.
High of 64 with a 90% chance of rain and thunderstorms on Saturday for the game. With Arkansas making an effort to "Stripe The Stadium" this week, make sure you check here for which color (red or white) poncho you should pick up from a street vendor on your way in.
Last year when Jeremy Johnson threw ALL OVER the Arkansas defense in week 1 on the Plains, a lot of Hog fans were proclaiming "I really don’t want to have to face that guy for a full game next season." Well good news, that guy has been benched. Sean White will continue to start at QB for the Tigers and besides throwing 5 fewer picks, has only been moderately more efficient than Johnson. Arkansas will face an Auburn defense that has given up 5.1 yards per play on the ground and an average of almost 200 rush yards per game. Detailed statistical breakdown here. With weather conditions conducive to "Normal American Football" we ought to expect a very uneven time of possession and very heavy dose of Alex, Rawleigh and (maybe finally) Kody.
Bottom line, if you want to see Arkansas football after November, this might be a must win as we discussed in this week’s panel discussion.
