The Hogs and Vols are kicking off today at 6:30pm on the SEC Network. Here’s how the game’s going to go.
BEN: Arkansas finally got the offense really rolling against A&M last week. While it may not be the smoothest ride on a lot of drives, points are points! Tennessee is allowing opposing quarterbacks to complete 67.1% of passes. Feleipe Franks should have a big day as the Hogs win! Arkansas 27, Tennessee 17.
LUKE: Maybe Tennessee figured something out during the bye week and maybe desperation time for the Volunteers will cause them to play well, but they’ve looked lost over the last month. Arkansas’s defense came back down to earth last week, but I think that had a lot to do with the loss of Jalen Catalon for the game against A&M. He is the straw that stirs the drink, and he’s back this week. I’m taking the Hogs 31, Vols 17.
ADAM: Tennessee’s offense isn’t a great matchup for this Razorback defense, but the Vols are having trouble at quarterback. I doubt they got their issues fully ironed out during their open week. Arkansas 26, Tennessee 21
RYAN: This is a tough one for me. Last week was interesting because the narrative of this Arkansas team was flipped. The offense showed up while the defense got throttled time and time again. Could this be the game where the pieces are put together to completion, and we see a complete Arkansas team? The Vols haven’t looked good as of late, but a bye week can make a difference. We know that Tennessee has a superb offensive line, so it will be up to the Hogs’ defensive line to get push. It seems that Dorian Gerald is finally healthy, and I believe that will make a huge difference. I just don’t know if it will be big enough; I hope I’m wrong. Tennessee 37, Arkansas 31
