The Hogs are a 31 point favorite this week with an O/U of 61.5. Texas State likes to spread it out and fling it around which should lead to a slow clock and several possessions for both teams and I expect Arkansas to use this opportunity to A) try and get better against that type of offense, and B) try and use this as a stat pad and practice reps for the skill players. I like the Hogs and the Over here.
76 degrees with a 30% chance of rain at kickoff with good chances of rain most of the day so have your rain gear handy for tailgating and during the game.
So… last week there were, quite literally, 2 quality matchups in all of college football. The best of those two was offered up by the Razorbacks in their upset victory over former SWC foe TCU. Arkansas is repaying college football for saving the week 2 schedule by doing quite the opposite with their week 3 game against Texas State. The Bobcats have only played 1 game so far this season (early season bye week huh?), which was a shootout with Ohio. They’ve had 2 weeks to game plan for Arkansas and the ever-possible let down game after a big win possibility is out there. Texas State plays a style of ball that the Hogs have struggled with frequently and I expect there to be a few big plays for the Bobcats that may raise some eyebrows. All that said, I think we can expect to see a lot of long possession drives with a run-heavy lean and hopefully letting Devwah Whaley out of the cage. Hopefully we’ll see a nice little ramp up aiming towards next week’s A&M game rather than a sluggish celebration of last week’s big TCU victory and send the Razorbacks to Dallas continuing to trend in the right direction. No steps backwards now coach!
