Last Season Records: Arkansas 3-7; Rice 2-3

What to Know

The Arkansas Razorbacks and the Rice Owls will face off at 2 p.m. ET Sept. 4 at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium to kick off their 2021 seasons. Last year was nothing to brag about for Arkansas (3-7), so the team is looking forward to a new start. Rice struggled last year, too, ending up 2-3.

A pair of last-season stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: The Razorbacks snagged 13 interceptions last season, the 13th most (top 10%) in the nation. But Rice collected two interceptions, good for fifth in the the nation. We’ll see which of these strengths — offense or defense — will win out.

Arkansas is the favorite in this one, with an expected 19.5-point margin of victory. A win is hardly a sure thing, especially this early in the season, so expect a good game.
