Congratulations to Brian Baer and Hogwild Joshua, for the closest predictions last week. In the spirit of Thanksgiving, and much like the two defenses in Starkville, we are in the giving mood (two winners) after that big win which was totally void of defensive football.
Razorbacks will struggle to contain the QB but as Sunshine stated, State cannot stop us. We will win a close one. Razorbacks 41, Miss State 38. – Brian Baer 11/17/2016
Arkansas is 9-0 following an SEC Loss since Bret’s first win. Let that sink in for a minute…Arkansas is really pissed right now…you can tell they are focused by blocking out media distractions this week…I like the Hogs BIG in this one…MSU lost to South Alabama and got Texas A&M while they were injured. Nick is a QB that has padded his stats against UMass and other smaller schools…Arkansas 42, MSU 28. – Hogwild Joshua 11/17/2016
A win is a win, and we’ll take them however they come. But if you like defensive football, you probably found that ‘uncommonly unwatchable’.
Next up: Missouri, who leads the SEC in total offense and just put up 740 yards against the Vols. They lined up and ran it down Tennessee’s throat to the tune of 420 yards rushing. 1,000-yard rusher, and Little Rock native, Damarea Crockett will not play Friday though due to his recent arrest for pot possession.
For those of you new to our little weekly prognostication antics, see our contest rules here.
Here we go:
Walking on Sunshine: Missouri showed some fight against Tennessee last week, but four turnovers more than made up for the 740 total yards they hung on the Vols. At 3-8, they will finish their season Friday in Columbia…so will they pack it up early? The over/under is 75, so if either defense forces a couple of punts, that could be enough. With a win, the Hogs can still sneak into a Florida Bowl (Gator…most likely). Arkansas 45, Missouri 35.
HogBaller: This year’s border battle will come down to which team can stop the run. On paper, the Razorbacks are heavy favorites and should win going away. But these Tigers may have something to prove. One thing is for sure…it’s never easy on the road in the SEC. Arkansas 41, Missouri 38.
SlobberHog23: Let’s not make this any bigger than it needs to be. This is a made up rivalry with a silly name. Missouri is without their stud RB, and the Hogs are hot on O. Robb Smith saves his job with a decent performance to close the regular season. Hogs bring home the BLT – “Battle Line Trophy”. Arkansas 42, Missouri 17.
TipsterHog: The ‘Battle’, in the ‘Show Me’ state shows…that neither team has a defense. Arkansas 42, Missouri 34.
