Comments

This is a battle of two teams that desperately need this win. The loser of this game’s head coach will likely have their seat get really hot. Win it and progress is being made. You survive to maybe coach another year. It’s sad because both of these head coaches a good men. Looking at this game, statistically you’d think that Arkansas would be the favorite. However, keep in mind that Arkansas opened at home against an FCS opponent and nearly lost. Ole Miss opened against a good FBS team on the road and in a hostile environment. I’m going with Ole Miss for this one. I might be wrong, it’s mostly just a hunch. If you are a betting person, you might not want to bet on this game.
