Arkansas Razorbacks

Arkansas junior QB Ty Storey completed 13-of-31 passes for 141 yards and an interception while rushing for 44 yards in Saturday's 34-3 loss to Auburn. Storey (6'2/215) was tabbed as the team's starter -- for good, we think -- during the practice week, but it wouldn't have mattered if Cole Kelley had taken the opening snaps against the Tigers. Arkansas is very much a work-in-progress at this juncture, while Auburn is very much a top-15 kind of team. The Razorbacks will play host to Texas A&M next weekend. We'd like to see some developmental progress from Storey now that he's officially been installed as starter for the campaign.

Texas A&M Aggies

Texas A&M sophomore QB Kellen Mond completed 16-of-33 passes for 196 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions while rushing for 98 yards and an additional score in Saturday's 45-23 loss to Alabama. Mond and the Aggies were up to try to make this one a game and pushed Alabama to play their starters in the second half (craziness!), but even with their respectable efforts, they fell well short of actually challenging for a win. The 6-foot-2, 210-pounder did find a few lanes as a runner, with his 98 yards on the ground standing as his best tally of the young season. Setting aside Saturday's predictable outcome, we love what we've seen from the sophomore early on this year. Mond has thrown for 1,020 yards with a 7/2 TD/INT ratio in four games this season, with 201 yards rushing accounted for on his statistical ledger in addition. Texas A&M will look to bounce back against the hapless Arkansas Razorbacks in Week 5.

Betting Trends

Arkansas

The under is 5-2 in the Razorbacks’ last seven games overall.

Texas A&M

The over is 5-1 in the Aggies’ last six games overall.

Prediction

A&M is going to score plenty of points, especially on the fast track of AT&T Stadium, home of the Cowboys. That said, I just don’t trust this Arkansas offense to contribute to an over play. The Razorbacks rank 98th in total yards, 84th in both passing yards and rushing yards, respectively, and are 93rd in points scored. I do have concerns about Arkansas’ pass defense (102nd in the nation in passing yards allowed) against Mond, but I still don’t think the Hogs will score enough for this game to get into the 60s.

College Football Prediction: Arkansas/Texas A&M under 61.5
