Congratulations to longtime reader Carolina Hog for the closest prediction last week of 38-24. His quote: “Haven’t seen these Hogs really click yet. This could be the week, but I’m not banking on it until I see it.”
Yep…another week gone by…and we’re still waiting for this team to “really click.” But one thing you can bank on: Carolina Hog. That’s two prediction contest wins for Carolina this season after nailing the exact score in the New Mexico game earlier this year. If this trend continues, you’ll be wearing a clean RBN T-shirt every day of the week! Nice job, man…again.
So here we go:
Walking on Sunshine: I’ve got a bad feeling about this one. Vandy is better on defense than a lot of people realize. They tackle well, cover well, and will bring a lot of pressure. And with our recent propensity to start slow for early morning kickoffs, this one has ‘upset special’ written all over it. Bobby Petrino, though, has not lost at Arkansas when he was favored to win. Nothing is ever easy. Arkansas 31, Vanderbilt 24 (OT).
HogBaller: The Hog offensive and defensive units get off to a fast start. While the Commodores are more than capable of making this a very tough game, the Razorbacks pull away late and avoid the upset. Arkansas 35, Vanderbilt 24.
HogBlogger: The third slow start in an early morning game this season is a charm. In a bad way. Vanderbilt 28, Arkansas 24.
TipsterHog: Wow…that’s some nervous RazorBloggers making those picks. But as an old college football sage would say: “Not so fast, my friends.” For once, the Hogs actually show up early to play and we crush the Commies. Arkansas 42, Vanderbilt 17.
