Why Arkansas Will Win

And thus begins the Barry Lunney era.

It’s been two weeks since the Hogs fired Chad Morris, but will that help make the offense any better?

For all of the losing, all of the embarrassment, and all of the problems, the Hogs have a decent enough secondary to make a few plays here and there, and the offensive line hasn’t been all that bad.

The ground attack ripped through WKU for 253 yards – averaging over nine yards per carry – a week after bothering Mississippi State for over seven yards per pop.

Rakeem Boyd isn’t getting enough work, but he’s been the main man with a few home runs over the last few weeks in his two 100-yard running games. On the year he’s rushed for over 100 yards four times – the first two times were in the two wins – and now he gets to go against an LSU defensive front that just got gouged.

It was against the Ole Miss offense designed by offensive coordinator Rich Rodriguez – it’s able to crank out big yards in chunks from time to time – and LSU couldn’t handle it. QB John Rhys Plumlee and company ran for over 400 yards with four scores in the wild shootout.

Arkansas has to turn it loose, because …

Why LSU Will Win

The Hog defense is about to be in for a very, very long day.

The Tigers can pick the way they want to get things moving. The Arkansas secondary hasn’t picked off a pass in five games and was giving up well over nine yards per throw before WKU dinked and dunked its way to a blowout win.

Joe Burrow should do his thing – just assume he’ll be connecting on at least 70% of his throws on this group – and then it’ll all be up to the running game.

Clyde Edwards-Helaire is on a run of three straight 100-yard games, averaging over six yards per pop on the season. The Arkansas defensive front cant get behind the line a little bit, but it can’t hold up against the un, allowing 265 yards or more in four of its last five games.

Kentucky ran for 330, Mississippi State ran for 460, and Auburn came close to hitting the 300-yard mark. LSU won’t have to take any big chances – it’ll be able to rip off yards in chunks.

What’s Going To Happen

The LSU defense that’s been getting hit hard and criticized over the last few weeks is about to show the world that it really isn’t all that bad.

Granted, it’s against a wounded Arkansas team that’s just trying to play out the year, but it’ll still matter.

The Tiger offense will effectively put this away in the first half, and then the defense will take care of the rest to clinch the SEC West.
