Penn State vs Arkansas Outback Bowl Preview

Penn State just got a whole lot of love with the prime New Year’s Day bowl slot. It was a good team that stumbled as the season went on, losing five of its last seven games with the lone wins coming over Maryland and Rutgers.

There were early close wins over Wisconsin and Auburn, but injuries, offensive inconsistencies, and too many close losses – four of those final five were by four points or fewer – but this could be a launching point with a strong team returning for 2022.

Arkansas hasn’t ben bowling since losing the 2016 Belk to Virginia Tech with a program that’s starting to take shape under Sam Pittman as a dangerous problem for the SEC West for years to come.

It’s built on the lines, a tough running game, and by making teams bend to its style. There are plenty of problems and weaknesses, but it’s an efficient team that won four of its last five games, with the only loss coming to Alabama in a 42-35 fight.

– Penn State is taking the bigger personnel hit. Star WR Jahan Dotson has opted out – he’s a first round caliber prospect – to go along with DE Arnold Ebiketie, all-star S Jaquan Brisker and losing the 1-2 tackling linebacking tandem Brandon Smith and Ellis Brooks hurts. Throw in the departure of defensive coordinator Brent Pry for the Virginia Tech head coaching gig, and there’s a whole lot missing.

– Arkansas isn’t immune from the opt outs. Top WR Treylon Burks is out, and defensive end Tre Williams won’t be a part of the fun, but it has a far better situation than Penn State is dealing with.

All of the CFN Fearless Predictions

Missouri vs Arkansas Game Preview


Why Missouri Will Win

House money time.

Missouri was going to get walloped by Georgia and Texas A&M, it was going to beat North Texas and Vanderbilt, and then the South Carolina game was going to be a shot at one last moment of fun before getting destroyed by Florida and …

The Tigers weren’t anything special in the 24-23 win, but they got the W, they’re bowl eligible, and Dan Mullen got whacked.

Pulling this off against Arkansas starts with the pass rush. The Hog offensive line gives up plays in the backfield, and Mizzou has to get to KJ Jefferson just enough to keep him from getting comfortable.

The offense has to get the ground game going early – the team is 5-0 when running for 200 yards – and banged up QB Conor Bazelak has to at least his his third down throws because …

College Football Expert Picks, CFN Week 13

Why Arkansas Will Win

Arkansas keeps on coming.

It might not always be dominant, and it hasn’t come close to playing the same type of game twice in a row, but at least the O is consistently good at being balanced.

Missouri’s run defense can be blasted on – it starts there. Arkansas wasn’t able to get things going on the ground against LSU or Alabama, but it was able to control the Mississippi State game well enough to get by.

Missouri dinks and dunks with its passing game, but it’s not as effective at it as Mississippi State.

NFL Expert Picks, CFN Week 12

What’s Going To Happen

Arkansas might have lost to Alabama, but that was a great fight with the team battling and battling some more to make it interesting. However, there’s little margin for error here coming off that tough fight.

It was +3 in turnover margin against LSU, and it only won 16-13. It was mistake-free against Mississippi State, and it was still a fight. It blinked in the 52-51 loss to Ole Miss by being -2 in turnovers – and still almost won.

Missouri isn’t quite explosive enough of consistent enough on both sides of the ball to handle an Arkansas team that might not have a ton of high-end talent, but it does a whole lot of things right.

Week 12 Big Game Reactions   
Oklahoma 28, Iowa State 21

Ohio State 56, Michigan State 7 Reaction

Well that went well.

If it’s possible to pitch a perfect first half, Ohio State did it.

CJ Stroud is now the leader in the Heisman race, the NFL receiving corps played like its should leave right now and step on a field on Sunday, and even the defense was able to dominate.

There was no big day from Michigan State RB Kenneth Walker – six carries for 25 yards.

There was no picking apart of the Ohio State secondary – it allowed 158 yards and a late score.

It was as good a day as the Buckeyes could’ve asked for going into the Michigan game, and it all started with an offensive line that gave Stroud 19 days to throw.

He wasn’t bad early on, but now he looks comfortable, his decision-making is faster, and it sure helps when you have those guys running free and easy.

And it doesn’t hurt to play the nation’s worst pass defense.

It doesn’t matter if you’re throwing against air – 32-of-35 for 432 yards and six touchdowns with no picks is pretty good.

It was the perfect performance that should push the Buckeyes up in the College Football Playoff rankings, even though that doesn’t matter too much. Beat Michigan, win the Big Ten Championship, and get in.

It’s not going to be nearly as easy as it looked against the beleaguered Spartan D, but it’s there. The offense looked like it’s ready to not just get back to the mini-tournament, but do some damage.

All of the CFN Fearless Predictions

Alabama vs Arkansas Game Preview


Why Arkansas Will Win

The Hogs might have the style and the demeanor to handle the moment.

They’re well past being bowl eligible, they’re on a three-game winning streak with good victories over Mississippi State and LSU, and they’re effectively playing with house money – there’s no pressure.

The offense might not be rolling – it had a bit of a rough day against LSU – but the defense is fantastic on third downs, the offense isn’t making a whole lot of mistakes – there aren’t too many turnovers – and Alabama has been a tad flaky.

Is this going to be the Tide team that sputtered and struggled against LSU and for way too long against Tennessee, or …

College Football Expert Picks, CFN Week 12

Why Alabama Will Win

Can Bama crank up the explosion to end this right away?

Arkansas can score – it kept up in the shootout loss to Ole Miss – but that’s not the team’s style. It doesn’t control the clock or the time of possession battle, but it has a way of making teams play its style. Alabama can end that with a few early scores.

Yes, the Hog defense is among the best in the country on third downs, but Alabama leads the nation converting 57% of its tries, the run defense has been a rock – Florida is the only team that could run at all on this group – and while the offense has been a bit inconsistent, it’s been getting the job done when it absolutely has to.

NFL Expert Picks: CFN Week 11

What’s Going To Happen

This is scary for Alabama considering it ran for just six yards against LSU a few weeks ago and the Arkansas run D hasn’t allowed more than 135 since getting ripped up by Ole Miss in early October.

Bama will come out roaring with an early score, and then things will settle in. Arkansas will keep this close and tight, but the passing game firepower by the home side will take over in the second half.

There were be plenty of chances for the Hogs to push through, but the Alabama defense will hold firm just enough to give the offense time to come up with a few good scoring drives.

All of the CFN Fearless Predictions

Arkansas vs LSU Game Preview


Why Arkansas Will Win

The running game should take over in a hurry.

LSU’s run defense has been fine, but inconsistent. It dominated Alabama – allowing just six net yards – but it got ripped apart by Ole Miss and Kentucky rumbled for 330 yards.

The Hog offensive line has been playing well, the running game has hit the 200 yard mark in each of the last four games, and now it’s fourth I the nation and first in the SEC on the ground.

LSU’s offense hasn’t been strong enough to take over if the Hogs are controlling the clock. The Tiger ground attack had one good game against Florida, and that’s been it. Max Johnson can throw, and …

College Football Expert Picks, CFN Week 11

Why LSU Will Win

The Arkansas secondary has been hit hard.

Georgia didn’t have to throw because its running game was too strong, and Arkansas-Pine Bluff didn’t do anything because it’s Arkansas-Pine Bluff, but after a good September the Arkansas pass D hasn’t been all that great.

Mississippi State gets a free pass because all it does is throw, and Ole Miss and Auburn were able to bomb away for close to 300 yards each, too. LSU need Johnson to get into an early groove.

He couldn’t quite come through against Alabama and he wasn’t needed too much against Florida, but he has to move the chains and be able to answer anything the Arkansas offense does.

If he’s not throwing for close to 250 yards there’s a problem.

What’s Going To Happen

LSU isn’t playing all that poorly.

It gave Alabama a massive scare, it kept the Ole Miss game from getting out of hand, it was close against Kentucky, and …

It lost four of its last five games.

There aren’t a ton of big mistakes – there aren’t any penalties and turnovers aren’t an issue – but the Arkansas running game and offensive efficiency will be the story.

It’ll be a night game in Death Valley against an inspired team, but the Hog offense will settle everything down.

All of the CFN Fearless Predictions

Mississippi State vs Arkansas Game Preview


Why Mississippi State Will Win

Will Rogers has been fantastic.

The sophomore quarterback is getting into a groove with the offense, playing well overall – hitting 75% of his passes – and it all kicked in with the win over Kentucky, completing 36-of-39 passes for 344 yards and a score with more things happening on the move and down the field.

If he’s connecting, Mississippi State has the exact type of formula to get by the Hogs. It’s going to move the ball on third downs, it’s outstanding at controlling the clock, and that all combines with the fifth-best run defense in America.

Now the Bulldogs have won three of their last four games – with the one loss coming to Alabama – and they’re still in the mix for a possible New Year’s Six bowl appearance if they can win out.

College Football Expert Picks, CFN Week 10

Why Arkansas Will Win

So how do the Hogs handle what the Mississippi State offense is doing?

The offense has to keep moving things, too, and it should after generating a strong balance with 873 rushing yards and 767 passing – with over 200 yards both rushing and passing in each game – over the last three outings.

The defense that’s among the best in the nation at coming up with third down stops has to keep Rogers from moving the chains, and the secondary that’s the best in the SEC at not allowing deep shots, and is second overall behind Georgia in pass D, has to be sharp.

What’s Going To Happen

The Arkansas offense will get things moving.

Mississippi State’s offense is going to throw for at least 350 yards – that’s what it does. However, the Bulldog D continues to be the underappreciated star, allowing fewer than 300 yards of total offense in three of the last four games.

The Hogs, though, will keep the time of possession battle in range, but can it keep the turnovers to a minimum?

Arkansas turned it over twice in the first five games and five times in the last three. Mississippi State will generate a takeaway, but it won’t get the four it generated against Kentucky last week.
