Reason No 2. The Razorbacks are one of the best tackling teams in the SEC

The Hogs core of Hayden Henry, Bumper Pool and Grant Morgan are all each in the top 10 in the SEC for most total tackles this season.

Pool is number two in the SEC for total tackles with 77, Henry’s tied for seventh with 61 total tackles and Morgan is tied for the eighth-most in the conference with 60.

The trio has a combined four sacks and three pass deflections this season. They’ll be active and looking to disrupt the passing lanes all game long.

The Hogs may give up short yardage gains against Mississippi State, but you best believe once those Bulldogs catch the ball, they’ll be met with thunderous force.

The Razorbacks excel at tackling and won’t allow these wide receivers to pickup any extra yards after the catch.

We haven’t even talked about the secondary, but that’s up next in reason number three.
