This is another of several games that the SEC set up to benefit some of the top tier teams. There are no cupcake out of conference games this season so it’s almost like the SEC setup the opening day schedule kind of like they do in basketball tournaments in the first round. The top team plays the bottom team and so on. Why not let Vandy and Arkansas play on opening day? That would be more exciting to watch than a lot of these mismatches.

Arkansas does have a new, seasoned SEC quarterback in former Florida star Feleipe Franks who is a graduate transfer. This will be the first game for new Arkansas head coach Sam Pittman, a former Georgia assistant. Throw in too the Georgia quarterback controversy and I think this game will not be the biggest mismatch of the day. I think Arkansas will be able to hang around for a quarter or so and it won’t be as bad of a deficit as many think.
