OUR EARLY PICK: The Razorbacks have generally struggled to cover in the month of September. In their last 37 games in the first month of the season, Arkansas covered in just 12 of those contests. As for the Bulldogs, they're 6-1 against the spread in their last seven non-conference games and have covered in five of their last six meetings versus the SEC as well. While LA Tech is in rebuild mode, the Bulldogs still return some of Conference USA's best players in receivers Trent Taylor and Carlos Henderson, as well as safety Xavier Woods.
