Reason No 3. The Razorbacks have some ball-hawks in the secondary

The Hogs may have lost defensive back Jaleon Catalon (one of their best secondary defenders) to injury for the rest of the season, but there are ample number of players who have stepped up and will continue to step up in his absence.

Chief among those who are leading the charge in the secondary is senior Montaric Brown. The Ashdown, Ark. native has recorded three interceptions so far this season, placing him the in the top 10 in all of college football for most INTs.

For reference, South Carolina’s Jaylan Foster has the most with five interceptions on the season, putting Brown not that far behind the pole position.

Additionally, defensive backs Myles Slusher and Malik Chavis have each recorded a takeaway this season as well.

The Razorbacks as a team have recorded 25 pass deflections on defense this year, so you know they’ll be active and looking to disrupt the flow of the Air Raid early and often in this game.

dark. Next. This Razorback has been named a nominee for the Burlsworth Trophy

The Arkansas Razorbacks will host the Mississippi State Bulldogs Nov. 6 at 3 p.m. CT on the SEC Network.
