Comments

This is one of the better games of the coming weekend. Two old Southwest conference foes facing off in Arlington. Both teams are 3-0 with one dropping to 3-1 and one improving to 4-0 after the Saturday game. I’m going with Arkansas to win this one. They are hard-nosed and have a very tough defense. They seem to have a better offense than A&M too.
