LSU-Arkansas Series Prediction

This should be great series to watch. Two SEC West stalwarts facing off in Fayetteville. Arkansas looks like the one team in the conference that could possibly challenge Tennessee for the conference title but, unfortunately, there won’t be an Arkansas-Tennessee series unless it’s at a Super Regional or in the final round of the CWS. LSU has a series win at Florida and a sweep over the defending national champs, Mississippi State. I think playing in Fayetteville, the hogs should prevail.

Arkansas 2 wins, LSU 1 win
