Bet Auburn at Arkansas

Gene Chizik has the Tigers at 5-0 in his first year as head coach with a 2-0 mark in the SEC, picking up wins over Mississippi State and Tennessee. The Tigers are scoring 41 points per-game, which is second in the SEC, and have rushed for 1,269 yards as a team, which is best in the conference. Ben Tate is leading the rushing attack with 540 yards and two scores while Onterio McCalebb has added 416 yards and three scores. The passing game has been effective as well for Auburn, as Chris Todd has thrown for 1,230 yards and 12 touchdowns. Darvin Adams and Terrell Zachery each had over 300 yards receiving and the two have combined to catch nine touchdowns. Defense has been Auburn’s only weakness, as the Tigers are allowing nearly 24 points per-game. The Tigers rank near the bottom of the SEC in passing defense, as they have allowed 954 yards through the air in five games.

Arkansas has one of the top passing games in the country and the best in the SEC behind Ryan Mallett, who has thrown for 1,148 yards and 11 touchdowns on the season. Joe Adams, Jarius Wright, and Greg Childs each have over 250 yards receiving on the year. The running game is pretty obsolete for Arkansas, as they rank last in the SEC with just 447 yards on the ground. Defensively, Arkansas has allowed the most points and yards per-game in the SEC. The Razorbacks have been torched for 1,134 yards through the air, but have held opponents to just 484 yards rushing.
