The Line: Arkansas Razorbacks -35 -- Over/Under: 60.5
The Tennessee-Martin Skyhawks and Arkansas Razorbacks play Saturday night at Razorback Stadium.
The Tennessee-Martin Skyhawks look for their third road victory which would give them a five-game winning streak. Jarod Neal is completing 61.1 percent of his passes for 1,893 yards, 22 touchdowns and four interceptions. Neal has eight passing touchdowns in his last three games. Rod Wright and Caylon Weathers have combined for 1,039 receiving yards and 15 touchdowns while William Tanner has 27 receptions. The Tennessee-Martin Skyhawks ground game is averaging 174.4 yards per contest, and Trent Garland leads the way with 418 yards and five touchdowns. Defensively, UT Martin is allowing 32 points and 379.3 yards per game. Marquis Clemons leads the Skyhawks with 39 tackles, Damani Taylor has 4.5 sacks and Jordan Landry has six pass deflections.
The Arkansas Razorbacks need this home victory to get them back to a .500 record. Brandon Allen is completing 62.3 percent of his passes for 1,769 yards, 13 touchdowns and five interceptions. Allen has five passing touchdowns in his last two games. Drew Morgan and Hunter Henry have combined for 838 receiving yards and seven touchdowns while Keon Hatcher has 13 receptions. The Arkansas Razorbacks ground game is averaging 182.4 yards per contest, and Alex Collins leads the way with 787 yards and seven touchdowns. Defensively, Arkansas is allowing 26.4 points and 372.6 yards per game. Brooks Ellis leads the Razorbacks with 58 tackles, Tevin Beanum has 1.5 sacks and Henre’ Toliver has four pass deflections. Cornelius Floyd, Eric Hawkins and Jared Cornelius are questionable.
Tennessee-Martin has shown to be a solid team against comp at its level. Once the Skyhawks go on the road to play the big boys, they struggle as we saw in the opneing week against Ole Miss. Arkansas isn't winning much but has hung around against elite comp as of late.
I like the Razorbacks to get a much needed blowout victory.
