Here’s your weekly rundown of all the SEC action on tap for Week Eleven of the regular season. As always, you’ll find everything from TV listings to the betting lines to our own predictions.
Enjoy the games, be safe, and best of luck to your favorite school this weekend.
Sadly, this is an absolute joke of a weekend. Horrible games abound. Reminds us of this! But here goes anyway…
Arkansas at Mississippi State
12:21pm ET on SEC Network
Opening Line: MSU -6
Current Line: MSU -6
Storylines: Arkansas is trying to keep its slim bowl hopes alive. Mississippi State is trying halt a three-game losing skid.
Keys for Arkansas: Stop the pass. The Razorbacks are dead last in the SEC in pass defense and QB Tyler Russell of Mississippi State is likely licking his chops. (Then again, after three straight losses, there probably shouldn’t be much chop-licking of any kind going on in Starkville these days.) Arkansas needs to either a) slow down Russell, b) fire up RB Knile Davis to chew clock, or c) do all of the above.
Keys for Mississippi State: Reignite the run game. Arkansas’ rush defense is pretty good statistically but that could be because everyone spend their time attacking the Hogs through the air. The Dogs ground game has ground to a standstill the past three weeks — 47 yards, 98 yards, and 47 yards. In MSU’s first seven games — against bad opponents — the Bulldogs rushed for no less than 141 yards in any one contest. Gotta run the thing.
Pick: Mississippi State 31, Arkansas 27
