Fresh off a bye following a loss to Florida, the Auburn Tigers heads to Razorback Stadium for an SEC showdown with the Arkansas Razorbacks.
Auburn started the season ranked No. 16 in the nation, but climbed as high as No. 7 thanks to huge wins over Oregon, Texas A&M and Mississippi State. But a loss to Florida humbled the Tigers and breakout quarterback Bo Nix, and they spent the last week licking their wounds from the 24-13 loss.
Arkansas has given Texas A&M and Kentucky scares in the past few weeks, but lost both of those games and are now 2-4 overall. The Razorbacks really have yet to take any steps forward under head coach Chad Morris. The second-year coach is 0-11 against SEC foes and 4-14 overall since joining the program last year.
But if there's one thing that South Carolina's win over Georgia taught us last week, it's that you can never take an SEC team for granted. Nevertheless, the Razorbacks will still be underdogs by nearly three touchdowns on Saturday.
Here are the details for the Auburn-Arkansas game:
Game Time: 12:00 PM ET
Channel: SEC Network
Spread: Auburn -19
Announcers: Taylor Zarzour, Matt Stinchcomb, Alyssa Lang
Saturday will mark the 29th meeting between the two schools, but the longest winning streak by one team is Auburn with their current run of three.
Hopefully Auburn can avoid looking past the Razorbacks so that their game against LSU next week will be even more impactful.
