Arkansas-Texas A&M Prediction

Interestingly, in the final weekend of SEC regular season play 3 of the 4 top teams get series against the 3 worst teams in the league. Arkansas is the one left out in this group of the best four, having to travel to College Station to face a very good Texas A&M squad. A&M has better pitching while Arkansas has the superior hitting. The two teams are about dead even fielding. A&M might slip away with the series win like they did with Vandy but Arkansas should have the advantage. Arkansas 2 wins, Texas A&M 1 win.
