An extremely disappointing season for the Razorbacks has them very unlikely to pick up a bowl bid but would enjoy a win here in their break from the SEC schedule.
The Chanticleers started off their first season in the FBS with a win over UMass but have since lost 7 straight.
Coastal Carolina Chanticleers
It is expected that any team joining the FBS will struggle in their first season no matter who they are playing. But, a matchup with a SEC team – even a struggling one- just doesn’t seem fair.
Coastal Carolina has allowed 50+ points three times this season – including once to FCS Western Illinois. They have allowed opponents to convert 48 percent of their 3rd down attempts – which ranks 115th in the nation. And, they are struggling to get after the quarterback – recording sacks on just 4.3% of opponents’ dropbacks.
All of these weaknesses are likely to be exploited by a much more experienced and polished Arkansas team. Arkansas has struggled in SEC play this season but doesn’t mean they are unfit to take on one of the nation’s worst teams.
Coastal Carolina’s focus will have to be on exploiting Arkansas’s questionable run defense. The Chanticleers have generated a decent rushing attack this season averaging 4.5 yards per carry and reaching the end zone on the ground 11 times.
However, last week against Texas State they managed just 34 total rushing yards on 1.7 yards per attempt. They will have to hope to break a couple loose to keep themselves in the game. Otherwise, their inexperienced defensive front will get pushed around all day by a much bigger Arkansas offensive line.
A thrilling comeback win over Ole Miss put the Razorbacks back in the win column after 3 straight conference losses.
The Razorbacks have an outside shot of getting a bowl bid with Coastal Carolina this week and Missouri in the finale. But they will have to hope to continue playing good football this week to prepare for LSU and Mississippi State coming up next.
Arkansas’s struggles in conference this season have been largely due to their inability to stop the run. They are allowing 6.0 yards per carry – which ranks 125th in the FBS.
They have been forcing turnovers though – averaging nearly 2 takeaways per game. Against a run centric Coastal Carolina attack, they will have to find a way to shore up their run defense or they could be in big trouble at home.
Their inability to stop the run against teams like Auburn, Alabama, and South Carolina won’t necessarily show up against Coastal Carolina though. Those are teams who have been dominant rushing offenses in the FBS for decades while Coastal Carolina is just breaking onto the FBS landscape.
With three SEC games looming, the Razorbacks can’t afford to look ahead otherwise they will find themselves being embarrassed at the hands of one of the FBS’s bottom dwellers.

The Razorbacks have struggled at times this season defensively but that has been against some of the nation’s better offenses. Coastal Carolina won’t present nearly the challenge that Arkansas has been facing recently. I think Arkansas controls this game wire to wire in a relatively low scoring affair.

It will be a long building process for Coastal Carolina in establishing themselves in the FBS. They may reconsider putting SEC games on their schedule for a bit if this one gets ugly.
