Congratulations to Guinness Snout for the closest prediction last time of 28-24. His quote: “That was excitin’…let’s do it again.” Guinness is certainly no stranger to the winner’s circle after winning the South Carolina predictions contest last year. Let’s hope he thinks we can ‘do it again’ this week, too.
And just in case you forgot over the bye week, a snazzy RBN t-shirt from Carpenter Clothing Co. is up for grabs each week for the closest prediction. Click here if you need to jog your memory on how our little contest works.
So here we go:
Walking on Sunshine: Alabama controls both sides of the line of scrimmage…making for a long day in the Ozarks. Defense gets its first turnover, but kicking woes still linger. Alabama 33, Arkansas 19.
HogBaller: A safe…no easy…bet would be that Alabama has their way and wins in a blowout. But the Hogs are playing their SEC opener at home and Petrino and staff have had nearly two weeks to prepare. I’ll take those odds. ‘This offense won’t work in the SEC’ 31, The Beefy ‘Bama Boys 21.
HogBlogger: Optimistic the Hogs will grow up fast. Arkansas 31, Alabama 24.
TipsterHog: Defense wins championships. They have one…we don’t…yet. Alabama 38, Arkansas 13.
