Heading into the season this was going to be a game to help determine which of these programs might be going from good to great.
Now both are hoping just for a measure of respectability, especially Arkansas who has been a disaster this season.
Sitting in opposite division these two programs have not met since 2011.
The Hogs went from sleeper to nonfactor pretty darn quickly this season. They have only one win and they have scored more than 24 points in a game just once. those figures are definitely connected as this team is not the offensive force that was expected.
When they lost RB Jonathan Williams they knew it was a hit but that should have meant a monster season by Alex Collins behind their behemoth line. That hasn’t been the case and being down so much hasn’t helped either.
The defense is the key. Right now they are getting shredded through the air – 100 ranking. Their rush defense numbers are OK but that is likely because it has been so easy to pass on the Razorbacks.
So far this season has been a bust for Arkansas. They still have a chance to make it respectable though if they can string together a couple of league victories. They might be catching the Vols at the perfect time.
Similar to Arkansas this was supposed to be a breakout season for the Vols. With the talent in place Butch Jones was supposed to be turning this program back into a contender but the results just haven’t been there yet.
Rather than winning against Florida or Oklahoma at home they have found ways to lose, putting Jones squarely in the crosshairs of Vols nation. This team is very close to being 4-0 and ranked in the Top 10.
Still I am not sold on Tennessee being at that level. If they are then you have to back them in this one, which should be a route. If they are.
Good teams win, plain and simple, and until the Vols start winning some of those games they are supposed to I am not sold.
