OT: Arkansas vs Mississippi State Preview

For the first time in years, the #5 Arkansas Razorbacks (9-1) look like a football machine. We certainly aren't invincible but we have the talent to end the season with a very high ranking.

If Arkansas executes its offense like it did last week against Tennessee, Mississippi State (3-7) should be a small speed bump on the road to LSU. However, the Mississippi State defense has played fairly well this year and could present a challenge to the potent Razorback offense led by running back/quarterback/receiver Darren McFadden.

This is also a road game for the Razorbacks in a stadium that has been trouble for them in the past. Arkansas must move the ball early and score to take the crowd out of the game.
