Imagine (as if you haven’t already) that the referees from last week’s game in Auburn had made the correct decision about Bo Nix’s fumble that should have given the ball and the game to the Razorbacks. Where are the Hogs ranked today? 20th or so? Beating two ranked teams on the road means something.
What would it have meant for this week? In terms of betting, the Hogs opened as a 3-point underdog at home, although it’s dropped to +1.5 over the week. Most people are assuming Ole Miss’s absurd offense is going to travel to Fayetteville and exit with a victory. If Arkansas is 2-1 in the record book, doesn’t that flip?
So what’s the difference between an Arkansas team that’s 2-1 versus one that’s 1-2 but played like it’s 2-1? Not a thing, as long as last week doesn’t negatively affect morale.
So the gang at Arkansas Fight is unanimously picking the Hogs.
The Ole Miss game is going to be ridiculous, in the way that all Arkansas-Ole Miss games seem to be. It should be fun, and it should be Arkansas’s time.
The biggest game of the day, nationally, is #3 Georgia’s trip to #2 Alabama. The Dawgs have the best defense in the country, while the Tide have possibly the best offense going. Nick Saban is likely out, which adds a strange kink to the conference’s mega-matchup.
The other big game of the day was supposed to be LSU at Florida, but that game’s been called due to Florida’s lack of players.
There’s five SEC games this week to cherish and embrace. Here’s how we see them going. Let us know what we nailed (or got wrong) in the comments!
