Georgia Southern @ No. 20 Arkansas
Current Records: Georgia Southern 1-1; Arkansas 2-0
What to Know
The Georgia Southern Eagles are staring down a pretty large 23.5-point disadvantage in the spread for Saturday’s matchup. They are on the road again on Saturday and play against the Arkansas Razorbacks at 4 p.m. ET Sept. 18 at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium. Arkansas should still be riding high after a win, while the Eagles will be looking to regain their footing.
Georgia Southern found themselves the reluctant recipients of an unfortunate 38-6 punch to the gut against the Florida Atlantic Owls last week. Georgia Southern was down 31-6 at the end of the third quarter, which was just too much to recover from.
Meanwhile, Arkansas ran circles around the Texas Longhorns last week, and the extra yardage (471 yards vs. 249 yards) paid off. Arkansas had enough points to win and then some against Texas, taking their game 40-21. The Razorbacks’ success was spearheaded by the efforts of RB AJ Green, who punched in one rushing touchdown, and RB Trelon Smith, who punched in one rushing touchdown.
Special teams collected 16 points for Arkansas. K Cam Little delivered a perfect 4-for-4 game.
Georgia Southern’s defeat took them down to 1-1 while Arkansas’ victory pulled them up to 2-0. A win for Georgia Southern would reverse both their bad luck and Arkansas’ good luck. We’ll see if Georgia Southern manages to pull off that tough task or if Arkansas keeps their momentum going instead.
