The Razorbacks might have drawn first blood against Kentucky last week, but it was Kentucky who got the last laugh. Arkansas was within striking distance but couldn’t close the gap as they fell 24-20 to Kentucky. The losing side was boosted by RB Rakeem Boyd, who rushed for 134 yards and two TDs on 15 carries. Boyd put himself on the highlight reel with a 74-yard TD scramble in the first quarter. Boyd has never finished with more yards this season.
Meanwhile, after flying high against Miss. State three weeks ago, Auburn came back down to earth. The Tigers took a 24-13 hit to the loss column at the hands of Florida. Auburn’s defeat signaled the end of their five-game winning streak.
The Razorbacks are the clear underdogs, so they’re hoping it’s the size of the fight that determines this one. They are currently two for two against the spread in their most recent games, however, a trend bettors might want to take into account.
With both teams hitting sour notes in their previous games, they will no doubt be looking to produce a better outcome in this one. We’ll see which team satisfies their hunger and which team leaves with an empty stomach.
