Comments

This game features two teams that need this game badly. Auburn is coming off a 34-10 loss to Georgia while Arkansas, after a super start, has now lost two straight games. I’m picking Auburn to win. They battled Penn State on the road close and the Tigers also played Georgia closer than Arkansas. This game is being played in Fayetteville which could make a big difference.
