Vegas has Arkansas as a 7 point underdog, with an O/U of 58 (!!!). Look, neither the Hogs or the Frogs saw what they wanted to see in their respective openers against non Power 5 teams, but 58 points is a pretty big number for 2 teams that (at least want to) pride themselves on their defense. I think I’d stay away from the 7 and play the under here.
83 degrees and cloudy with very little chance of rain at kickoff. There will be early rain in the area on Saturday so if you’re in town plan accordingly, but it doesn’t look like weather will affect the game.
You saw the same thing I saw last week. Corners that were a bit too soft and a pass protection that was at times completely lost. We’ve heard differing opinions this week as to whether it was the line or the running backs picking up blocking assignments but I imagine pass blocking and pass defending were a high priority in Bielema’s practices this week in preparation for TCU. The last time these former SWC members matched up was 25 years ago in 1991 when Arkansas squeaked out a 22-21 victory. While almost unanimously selecting TCU to win the game I’ve seen so many college football pundits pointing to this game being the most interesting game on the Week 2 calendar (there’s not much competition). While I do believe that Arkansas will fall in Ft. Worth, I’m a full faith believer in the power of Joe Tessitore and his ability to make any game he calls a crazy one. With that said, I’ll predict a 24-28 loss to TCU in this one.
