With a showdown against TCU up next and Texas A&M to follow, Arkansas gets to start the season off with a breather – and it might need it.
Can the Hogs start out hot? There’s no reason not to against a lousy Florida A&M team that’s showing up to get a nice paycheck.
However, the Rattlers have a win under their belt, coming up with a 29-7 victory over Texas Southern with a huge day from the defense and a balanced performance from the O.
But Arkansas will be a wee bit more of a challenge.
One Reason Why Florida A&M Will Win
Can A&M own the time of possession stat again? They held the ball for close to 39 minutes against Texas Southern.
The offense got a huge day out of QB Ryan Stanley, who threw for 217 yards and a score and ran for 21 yards and a touchdown. The team spread around the work, but Stanley has to be be even sharper – he hit 19-of-32 passes – and like it did last week, the O has to control the clock.
One Reason Why Arkansas Will Win
The O line is going to bash away on the Florida A&M defensive front.
The Rattlers allowed 62 rushing yards to Texas Southern – the Hogs should get that on their opening drive.
While Austin Allen and the passing game will used this to sharpen up, this can also be an attitude outing for an offense that has to get tougher and nastier – especially without star RB Rawleigh Williams around to handle the ground game. Watch out for a 300-yard rushing day.
What’s Going To Happen
Arkansas will empty the benches by the second half after putting up a massive number in the first half. A&M might be feisty, but outside of a few decent moments, this will be ugly early. Get ready to see at least five different Hogs receive significant carries.
Arkansas vs. Florida A&M Prediction
Final Score: Arkansas 52, Florida A&M 7
