My Prediction: We thought a few weeks ago that the LSU/Alabama game was the Game of the Year, but now Arkansas can really make things confusing for the BCS. If they can win this game it will create a 3-way tie for the SEC West division and it will come down to BCS rankings to see who plays in the Conference Championship. The Razorbacks have been rolling since they lost at Alabama to open SEC play back in September. LSU has lost 3 of the last 4 meetings with Arkansas and have failed to cover in each of those games. The last 6 meetings have been decided by less than 10 points. I think that trend continues and believe Arkansas has a shot at an upset.
