No. 1: The Arkansas football team will go 4-1 the rest of the season

The Hogs have a winnable game coming up on the schedule against Arkansas-Pine Bluff and it couldn’t come at a better time. With the team reeling from injuries and needing a Bye Week in a bad way, this could be a good reset for the Hogs.

After the game against Pine Bluff, the Hogs will take the Bye Week. Following that, Arkansas will take on Mississippi State at home. The Bulldogs have had a season not unlike Arkansas. They’ve lost a couple of games they could have won, but they beat a team or two unexpectedly. The Hogs will have a good chance to beat Mississippi State.

After that, two straight road games against LSU and Alabama. I don’t think anyone in the free world is expecting Arkansas to beat Alabama. LSU is in a state of dissary, recently announcing that they will part ways with their head coach upon the conclusion of the 2021 season.

Finally, the last game of the season is a game against Missouri. The Hogs should beat the Eli Drinkwitz-led team at home.  Missouri has a great quarterback and running back, but their defense is giving up a ton of yards and a ton of points per game.

The Razorbacks will get wins against Pine Bluff, Mississippi State, LSU and Missouri to finish the season 8-4 and find their way into a decent bowl game.
