The Hogs and Gators are kicking off today at 6:00pm on ESPN. Here’s how the game’s going to go.
Ben: I have really struggled with picking this game all week. Florida has looked really good all season. They can score, score, score. With superstar TE Pitts likely out and the Gators missing some O-linemen, it leaves the door open for the Hogs. Arkansas never quit against A&M(a team that beat Florida). I’ll go with the Gators, but it will be closer than most think. Florida 41, Arkansas 31
Luke: Florida looked great against Georgia last week, but they didn’t look great the whole game. In the second half, Georgia had some opportunities to make it a game again but couldn’t capitalize. Can Barry Odom game plan around what stopped working for the Gators? Kyle Trask is great, but he throws some interceptable passes. Can the Hogs exploit that?
Probably not this week. I think the Gators are playing at too high a level for the Razorbacks, especially at home and with the Hogs missing their head coach. Florida 41, Arkansas 21
Adam: Even without Sam Pittman, there’s no reason to think the Hogs won’t play hard, but there’s a lot working against them. Florida’s just too good. Florida 34, Arkansas 18
Jacob: The matchup between these two teams is very intriguing and should make Hogs ripe for an upset over a Gators team. A game which is being played on the road for the third time in four games. The SEC owes us one. Anyway, Florida has so much depth, speed and talent far superior to the Hogs. I think the Razorbacks keep it close until the 4th but Florida pulls away late. Florida 42 Arkansas 28
