Lines

Arkansas is a favorite for the first time against an SEC foe all season at -8. O/U is set at 75. I haven’t seen an SEC pundit all week say anything other than the Tigers don’t have much of a chance in this game. I like the Hogs by more than the number here and with hopefully a better defensive showing by Arkansas the total won’t make it over 75.

Weather

50 degrees in CoMo for the game with no chance of rain all day. Arkansas (and mainly the fans) have gotten very lucky versus rain in games this season.

Notes

Remember that time an insurance company invented a rivalry game? Things could not have gone more poorly for anyone who really (REALLY) want this game to become a bitter rivalry overnight. Damarea Crockett, the true freshman star running back for Missouri who is from Little Rock and was not offered by Arkansas, mentioned that he was looking forward to facing his home state team. He was arrested Sunday morning for marijuana possession and is suspended for the game on Friday. Mizzou linebacker Eric Beisel had a quote that it would ‘be a huge mistake’ for Arkansas to step on the field. His coach then called Coach Bielema to apologize for the insensitive remarks. Finally an Arkansas fraternity stole Missouri’s Chancellor’s prized pet poodle this week. They bathed it, groomed it and returned it to him with a Walmart gift card. OK, the last one didn’t happen but would you be surprised? Missouri gave up 63 points to a depleted Tennessee team last week and looked overall pretty fang-less on offense. Everything lines up on paper for this to be a fairly one-sided affair on Friday, but we all know how much that paper is worth in the SEC. In fact, that’s probably the thing that makes me most nervous going into the game. The Tigers are giving up almost 240 yards per game on the ground and another 240 through the air. With Bielema and Enos’ desire to run a balanced attack this could be a big day for Arkansas offensively. As with last week, it’ll come down to can Smith’s defense stop the Mizzou offense. I think they will and I’ll take the Hogs fairly large here 38-17. Happy Thanksgiving Hog Fans!
