The Rebels are led offensively by quarterback Bo Wallace (2,554 passing yards, 22 TDs, 8 INTs), but their team suffered a huge loss when receiver Laquon Treadwell was lost for the season against Auburn. Their pass defense is their strength, but against the Razorbacks 20th ranked rushing attack (232.9 YPG) that does not utilize the pass as much as most teams in the SEC, that is not as much of an advantage as it otherwise would be. Arkansas has an offensive line that outweighs any unit in the NFL, let alone the SEC, and they can lean on running backs Jonathan Williams (932 yards, 11 TDs) and Alex Collins (886 yards, 11 TDs) to attack a Rebel defense that surrendered 264 and 248 yards on the ground in its two losses to Auburn and LSU. Arkansas is a solid pick at home after proving that they can compete in the SEC with their dominant win over LSU. Take the Razorbacks here.
