After the Tigers’ dominating win over the Tennessee Volunteers 50-17, they travel back to
Columbia to defend their home turf for the final time of the 2018 season. The Arkansas Razorbacks head
to Columbia for annual Battle Line Rivalry, which is a great opportunity for the Tigers to finish with eight
wins for the first time since the 2014 season.

Arkansas, who is coming off an embarrassing 52-6 loss to Mississippi State in the Razorbacks’ final home game of the season, has struggled throughout the season as their defense ranks 82nd in the country while
their offense slots in at 113th. The Razorbacks are currently winless in conference play and are trying to
avoid going without a win in conference play for the first time in school history.

The Tigers are hoping to add a win which would improve their resume as bowl season is right
around the corner. This game is particularly big because it is senior day at Faurot Field and playing a
team like Arkansas could mean that it will be a day to remember for the senior class. The Tigers are
currently riding the momentum of a three-game win streak and are fresh of a dominant 50-17 win over
the Tennessee Volunteers. Going into this game it appears that everything is favoring the Tigers, but
many Tigers fans are wondering if they have seen the last of star Tight End Albert Okwuegbunam as a
Tiger. Okwuegbunam has missed the last 2 games and is questionable for this week’s game and could
potentially sit out of the Tigers’ Bowl game.

Tigers fans should feel confident going into this game as they are favored by 21 points. Also,
the Tigers have not lost a game in November since the 2016 season, an eight game winning streak that began with Mizzou’s 28-24 victory over Arkansas in the Tigers’ 2016 finale. Kick-off is at 1:30 on Friday,
November 23rd at Memorial Stadium.
