OUR PICK: Everyone knows about Brett Bielema's physical rushing attack. The Razorbacks want to pound you over and over again until you want nothing to do with tackling their running backs in the fourth quarter. But this year's Arkansas' squad should have a component passing game thanks to quarterback Austin Allen and receivers Drew Morgan and Cody Hollister. LA Tech is experiencing plenty of turnovers this offseason but should be able to move the ball on Arkansas' secondary. The two teams should combine for enough points to push the total over.
