Ruin the Razorbacks! (Auburn at Arkansas, Open Thread.)

Arky Thread

Tigers look to right the ship in the Ozarks tonight.
(Beth Hall-USA TODAY Sports)

     War Eagle, everybody! The Auburn football season continues this evening, with a visit to Fayetteville, Arkansas to face the Arkansas Razorbacks. Both teams are walking wounded for this one. However, both teams need a win. Arkansas, losers of 4 of their past 5 games, is looking at not making a bowl game this year, if they can’t turn it around. For Auburn, any remaining hopes of a championship this year go up in smoke, should they lose this game. This must-win contest will kick off at 6:30 PM Central Daylight Time, and will be televised on the SEC Network.

     I do not expect Arkansas to be a pushover in this game. Other than the loss at Alabama, Arkansas hasn’t really been blown out. The loss to TCU was close, till some late game mistakes handed TCU some easy touchdowns. I thought Arkansas should have won against a good Texas A&M team, but couldn’t keep up in overtime. The big loss to South Carolina is deceptive, too, because South Carolina scored 3 defensive touchdowns. It wasn’t like these teams really lined up and whipped Arkansas up front.

     For those who travel with the Tigers, the weather should be much different. Last week, it was the blistering sun. This week in Fayetteville, kickoff temp should be around 72F. Originally, rain was forecast for this game, but that has changed in recent hours, thankfully. The last thing anyone wants is to be wallowing in the mud with the Razorbacks! The temp should fall through the 60s, with a storm front arriving after the game is over.

     As always, feel free to join in and enjoy this thread. I will at the keyboard for my usual play by play, this evening. War Eagle, and let’s see if Auburn can get back on track against Arkansas!
