Arkansas Fight SEC Predictions, Week 7

The WLOCP is quite the undercard for a big game in Fayetteville

The World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party has some pretty high stakes this year, with both Florida and Georgia looking to be among the nation’s best. The winner of this game, if it can find a way to get past Alabama in the SEC title game, will have a real shot at a national championship.

The Gators have an explosive offense, led by any number of guys named Kyle. They also looked to have found a little defense in their win over Missouri last week.

The Bulldog defense, despite the setback to Bama in Tuscaloosa, are still maybe the best in the nation.

Watch this game, because, at the very least, it’s gonna cause loads of anxiety for both sides that you don’t personally have to feel. Fun!

Back home, the Hogs have a big opportunity Saturday night when the Volunteers come to Fayetteville. Getting back to .500* is going to go a long way when bowl selections come around. This win could end up being the difference between playing in Memphis or playing in one of those sunny Florida bowls.

Personally, I will never tire of beating the brakes off of Tennessee. My Razorback football fandom ignited in 1998, and that game in Knoxville was as much of a baptism into what it means to be a Razorback fan as anything (shout out to the old folks who say “now imagine what 1969 was like for us”).

So any

time

you beat

Tennessee

is a good time. Do it twenty more times, and 1998 will be redeemed.

Here’s some picks from the gang.

Florida vs. Georgia, 2:30 pm, CBS
