Arkansas bagged a 21-14 victory over the Mississippi State Bulldogs last week. Arkansas QB Feleipe Franks was slinging it as he passed for two TDs and 212 yards on 28 attempts. Franks hadn’t helped his team much against the Georgia Bulldogs two weeks ago, so this was a nice turnaround for him.
The Razorbacks’ defense was a presence as well, as it collected three interceptions and one fumble. DB Joe Foucha snatched up two of those interceptions, one with 1:28 remaining in the second quarter, the other with 14:31 left to play.
Meanwhile, the night started off rough for Auburn last week, and it ended that way, too. Their bruising 27-6 defeat to UGA might stick with them for a while. The last quarter was a mere formality since it was already 27-6 by the third quarter. QB Bo Nix had a memorable game, but not in the way you want to be remembered: besides failing to produce a single touchdown, he threw one interception with only 4.32 yards per passing attempt.
Arkansas is the clear underdog, so they’re hoping it’s the size of the fight that determines this one. However, those who like betting on the underdog should be happy to hear that they are 2-0 against the spread when expected to lose.
Auburn’s defeat took them down to 1-1 while Arkansas’ victory pulled them up to 1-1. We’ll see if the Tigers can steal the Razorbacks’ luck or if Arkansas records another win instead.
The Tigers are a big 13.5-point favorite against the Razorbacks, according to the latest college football odds.
