Comments

If Arkansas were playing this one in Fayetteville I’d be inclined to predict a hog victory. Playing in Baton Rouge is a different animal. LSU lost a heartbreaker at Alabama and the Tigers could be still thinking about that one during the week, instead of focusing on the hogs. Ed Orgeron has been pretty good at getting his players focused and motivated. I think LSU should be able to prevail at home in a close one.
