Golf legend John Daly will be paying very close attention to one of college football's biggest games this weekend.

Daly, 55, is an Arkansas alum. As a result, he's going to be glued to the TV Saturday afternoon when the No. 16 Razorbacks host No. 7 Texas A&M.

Arkansas is on the rise with Sam Pittman at the helm. The Razorbacks' physical rushing attack has given opponents trouble so far this season. It'll need to be at its best for Arkansas to take down the Aggies on Saturday.

Daly's pick is in. He's rolling with Arkansas to upset Texas A&M 28-17 on Saturday afternoon.

"I know one thing. We're excited," Daly said during an interview on ESPNU Radio. "We feel like Lazarus. We're coming from the dead. It's just awesome to watch. And our fans are always going to support our Razorbacks no matter what. There's nothing better than winning. Hogs 28-17."

John Daly said it better than we could have. Arkansas really is like Lazarus coming back from the dead.

The Razorbacks have been a laughingstock within the SEC for several years now. But Sam Pittman's turned this thing around and has the Razorbacks looking as dangerous as ever.

Texas A&M will be the most talented team Arkansas has faced so far this year. Despite the talent, the Aggies haven't looked like a top-10 team so far, though.

Catch the Razorbacks host the Aggies on Saturday afternoon at 3:30 p.m. ET on CBS.
