Comments

This is an early cupcake game but because it’s Portland State, coming all the way from Oregon, it makes it kind of interesting. This will probably be the first time ever that two SEC teams were playing teams from Oregon on the same day. PSU is no small college. Like Arkansas, the Vikings have over 20,000 students. You can expect major improvement from the Hogs this season. Chad Morris has been very patient in developing his players. This game should be an easy win for the Razorbacks.
