Florida is a 4 point favorite over the Hogs this week. The O/U is currently 47.5. With Arkansas coming off a bye this week and being back at home in Fayetteville, I like the Hogs +4 here and the under.
67 degrees at kickoff and no chance of rain. 2:30 kickoffs are the perfect game time and this should line up for the perfect day to spend on campus tailgating and/or enjoying SEC Nation who will be in town this week. They’ll be posted up on Old Main from 9-11am local time, but please refuse to participate in that awful arguing segment with PAWL.
You often hear college football writers and talking heads say something like, “Team A’s bye week couldn’t have come at a better time.” Well, in Arkansas’ case one week earlier might have been a better time, but second to that the ability to regroup after a humiliating showing at Auburn 2 weeks ago is pretty good timing for this Razorback squad. Florida is coming off one of their two big rivalry games while I’m guessing the Hog training staff disassembled Austin Allen and put him back together in the lab somewhere. A major point of discussion in this matchup has been Florida’s one-sided team. Florida’s offense has been very underwhelming and doesn’t mirror either Bama or Auburn’s offensive style. Florida’s defense on the other hand has been very good with an excellent secondary as their primary defensive weapon. It’ll be interesting to watch Arkansas deep WR corp in these matchups (provided Austin has more than 2 seconds to get rid of the ball). Expect to see several changes on both sides of the line with poor play by both of those squads in the game against Auburn. This has been the point in the past two seasons where Bielema’s teams have turned a corner and finished up very strong. I wouldn’t be surprised at all to see that happen again this year. I’ll take the Hogs by a field goal here 24-21.
