The Arkansas Razorbacks have proven that the team can play quality football on road, this week Hogs welcome Ole Miss.
The Arkansas Razorbacks will need to put last Saturday in the rearview mirror. No doubt about it the SEC is in protect the bluebloods mode and Arkansas needs to look toward Ole Miss being a chance to right the ship. Ole Miss will present the Hogs with some different challenges than the Auburn Tigers did. We will briefly get to know the strengths and the weaknesses of the Ole Miss Rebels. The key thing is for the Razorbacks to get right throughout the course of this week.
Every time over the years the Arkansas Razorbacks threaten the Auburn Tigers, controversial officiating seems to appear at the most strange times.
Briefly examining the Ole Miss Rebels it is clear that Lane Kiffin has brought some punch to Oxford. Through three games the Ole Miss Rebels is averaging 41.7 points per game. The Rebels put up a very respectable showing against the Alabama Crimson Tide. Kiffin has the Ole Miss rushing attack going, the Rebels are averaging 4.1 yards per carry. Running backs Jerrion Ealy and Snoop Conner make an impressive one-two punch for the Rebels.
Meanwhile, the play of Ole Miss quarterback Matt Corral has been terrific. Corral has thrown for 1,080 yards and nine touchdowns. However, Corral has only thrown one interception going against some strong defensive football teams. Corral was able to pick apart the Alabama Crimson Tide over the weekend. The Arkansas Razorbacks will need to play disciplined-mistake free football to defeat the Rebels.
Arkansas has played impressive football without some key players over the past two weeks. Hopefully, this week running back Rakeem Boyd and wide receiver Treylon Burks will be able to see some snaps. Getting some injured players back for the Ole Miss game is going to be important. The Arkansas-Ole Miss game has the potential to turn into a high scoring game and having all hands-on deck would be a huge boost for the Razorbacks.
