Arkansas vs. Missouri preview:
Arkansas has seemingly been up and down all year, alternating wins and losses since week three of the regular season. The Razorbacks will take down a ranked opponent one week (Ole Miss), then lose 56-3 the following week (Auburn). It's hard to predict how this team will play. The offense can put up points, but the defense is a revolving door.
Arkansas' defense is bad, but Missouri's is even worse. The Tigers are allowing 32.2 points per game and 477.5 yards. That's not good! The Tigers have lost six of their last seven and have been all but written off this week against the Razorbacks, but they put up a good fight against Tennessee last week, despite losing 63-37. Quarterback Drew Lock is one of the few bright spots on the team, and if he plays well they have a shot.
Arkansas vs. Missouri prediction:
I'm taking Missouri in this one with a gut pick. The Tigers are at home, and they will be out to prove something in their final game of the year. Both of these teams are really similar in that they have decent offenses and dreadful defenses, and I think Lock will be the key to getting Missouri the victory.
