It will be a homecoming for Arkansas defensive coordinator Barry Odom, who was the head coach of the Tigers from 2016-19, as it will surely be a bittersweet day for him..
For the Tigers, though, they’ll be focused on continuing to exceed expectations in year one under Eli Drinkwitz. Mizzou played their best game of the season last week in a 41-0 victory over Vanderbilt. Larry Rountree had three touchdowns and because Mizzou’s second-leading rusher all-time. Rountree will look to continue his success against an Arkansas defense that has allowed 179 rushing yards per game.
Arkansas fall 24-20 to LSU last week, but Feleipe Franks looked good in the loss. The issue for Arkansas is that Rakeem Boyd has opted out of the rest of the season, citing COVID concerns. This leaves the Razorbacks with just three running backs. The Hogs still ave Trelon Smith, but Boyd had been an excellent tandem, which is an element Arkansas will likely miss.
