Arkansas football fans can watch the next-gen version of Darren McFadden during Michigan vs Michigan State
Are looking for something totally different this weekend? Something you wouldn’t normally get when watching the Razorbacks or SEC football? Look no further than this huge rivalry game between an undefeated Michigan and undefeated Michigan State.
This is the game featuring the two highest ranked teams playing each other— the Wolverines of Michigan are ranked No. 6 in the AP Top 25 poll and the Michigan State Spartans are currently No. 8 in the poll.
One things that Razorback fans will enjoy is the play of Kenneth Walker III, the junior running back for Michigan State. This kid will remind you of the great Darren McFadden, one of the greatest Razorbacks of all time.
He’s a powerful, shifty runner that’s garnering serious Heisman Trophy consideration this season. He’s carried the ball 152 times for nearly 1,000 yards (he needs just three more yards to reach that mark). He’s accounted for nine rushing touchdowns and one receiving.
Walker is just electric. He’s had two games this season in which he’s rushed for 125 yards or more. He also has two other games in which he rushed for 225 yards or more—four games this season in which he’s eclipsed the 100 yard mark.
Razorback fans will be in for a treat if they tune into this matchup at 11 a.m. CT Oct. 30 on Fox.
