Bruce James Calls the Hogs, Nov. 9

comment

Saturday’s game
No. 11 Arkansas (8-1 overall, 5-0 in SEC) vs. No. 13 Tennessee (7-2 overall, 3-2 in SEC)
Site: Reynolds Razorback Stadium, Fayetteville
Time: 6 p.m.
Radio/TV: The ARSN network will broadcast the game on radio affiliates. The game will be televised on ESPN2.

What James says: Tennessee does not have a rushing attack. They’re going to have to totally rely on passing. So that’s going to allow Arkansas to tee off on the defense, and just go after the passer on every down. It’s going to be difficult for them to go on the road with a freshman quarterback and beat the Razorbacks at home. Arkansas has everything to play for — we’re at home, it’s a big televised game.

About Casey Dick: All year long I have thought that Casey Dick was the best quarterback. Mitch Mustain will probably be a great player one day, but he’s really young. I think it was a wise move to go with Casey Dick. He’s a better quarterback at this stage.

About the Volunteers: Tennessee’s loss to LSU has a great big effect on this game, because they won’t be in the running for the conference championship. They really don’t have as much to play for. Because of the injury to their quarterback, Erik Ainge, they will be playing a quarterback against us. They had three players arrested after the game — they’ve lost their discipline.

Saturday’s pick: Arkansas, 28-17.
