Following a forgettable second-half performance vs. Texas A&M, the once-beaten Razorbacks look to rebound against upset-minded Alcorn State.
SEC West contender Arkansas will be the prohibitive favorite in Saturday’s tilt opposite SWAC resident Alcorn State.
As the #20 ranked FBS program hosts FCS competition, the Razorbacks will enjoy substantial advantages across the board.
In Vegas and on the gridiron, Alcorn States appears tailor-made as week five bounce-back fodder for Arkansas.
Two weeks removed from a signature victory over TCU, Arkansas’ momentum was derailed by powerhouse Texas A&M.
Opposite an unblemished Aggies squad, the Razorbacks opened with a 17-10 advantage.
However, Arkansas was blitzed 35-7 after Trevor Knight’s 48-yard touchdown strike concluded the opening half. Amid a leaky second-half performance, questions arose regarding the Razorbacks’ two-way effectiveness.
While Arkansas floundered against top-level SEC competition, Alcorn State is a mere competitive afterthought.
This Saturday, look for offensive standouts Austin Allen, Jared Cornelius and Rawleigh Williams III to dominate early before the Razorbacks’ reserve unit logs substantial minutes.
Alcorn State Braves
Coming off a 41-18 trouncing at the hands of Grambling, Alcorn State has an arduous mountain to climb in Arkansas.
If they are to scale the apex, Senior QB Quinterris Toppings, WR Marquis Warford, and RB Jaborian McKenzie — along with an FBS defensive unit that yields 44 ppg in losses — must provide the performance of their collective careers.
Unfortunately, such a scenario appears cinematic in nature.
In reality, Grambling (3-1) compiled 538 yards of total offense, as standout Devante Kincade scored six touchdowns when tasked with Alcorn State’s permeable defense. The Braves’ one glimmer of hope vs. Arkansas is junior RB Arron Baker’s (17 att. 131 yds.) week four rushing output.

Free Week 5 NCAA Football Prediction
As stated throughout this preview, Arkansas is an overwhelming favorite in Saturday’s meeting.
The real contest should be whether Alcorn can produce a touchdown while holding Arkansas under 50 points.
Whenever a nationally-ranked power-five school plays host to a mediocre FBS program, creative side wagers are the only that seem feasibly interesting.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Arkansas -49
The schedule-makers clearly had Arkansas’ pivotal week six-date with #1 Alabama in mind when constructing this match-up.
While a Razorback victory is almost certain, covering the 49-point spread should be somewhat challenging.
Nevertheless, Arkansas will use a glorified scrimmage to rest stars and implement schemes ahead of an impending make-or-break showdown for their SEC West title hopes.
