Arkansas ran for 222 yards last year at home. They only return 3 lineman, one of which they lost was their All-SEC center, we return two starting linebackers, our run stopping star, every DT on the roster and our best run stopping DE.
We have some losses on defense, but not having Lawson (pass rusher) and Therezie (dime corner) shouldn't be too big of an issue against Brandon Allen and Arkansas' receivers, none of which I can name and I'm a pretty informed SEC fan.
Arkansas will hover around 200-230 rushing yards again, but as long as we keep them from repeating 9-16 on third down we should put up 300+ rushing yards.
I'd say 38-17. Pretty close to last year's score. We only break 40 if we get a defensive score. I think it's a respectable prediction since the line is around 21 exactly.
We started two true freshmen on the line last year and a former walk on at LT. We added UNLV transfer Cameron Jefferson who is likely to be our LG and some have projected him as a late round pick. Our only question mark is center but i feel good about 4/5 spots.
Plus we have one of the best OL coaches in college football coaching them. I don't blame you for not knowing who our WRs are though, we're probably going to play 3 newcomers in our top 6 or 7 receivers, and one of our better ones is back after tearing his ACL and missing last year.
