Comments

Arkansas is a nice story of a new head coach getting a program out of the gutter. The hogs are definitely headed in the right direction. That said, they are not to the point yet where they can march into Gainesville and knock off the Gators. Consider also that head coach Sam Pittman will not be on the sidelines for the hogs, as he has tested positive for COVID 19. I still think Arkansas will put up a good fight in honor of their beloved head coach. Florida’s offense is just too explosive. Arkansas should be able to score on this very average Gator defense.
