Arkansas football player to watch #2: Zach Williams
In many ways, Mississippi State quarterback Will Rogers feels like the polar opposite of Fortin. He is hyper-efficient and uber-productive.
I hate to beat a dead horse like opposing passing attacks have been bashing the Arkansas football secondary, but I have literally zero confidence that the Razorbacks will be able to slow down the Bulldog offense based on the way they have been playing.
Unless they get some pressure on Rogers, that is. Arkansas football must make Rogers uncomfortable early and often on Saturday to get him out of rhythm.
Several Razorbacks could get involved in that process. We’ve previously discussed how Drew Sanders, who currently leads the team in sacks, can impact the game that way. Jordan Domineck could also get involved here.
Williams gets our nod, though, because of the impact he had against Missouri State, the last pass-heavy offense the Hogs faced. Williams had two sacks in that game alone.
The Hogs will need another multi-sack game from Williams to win this one.
