The Georgia Bulldogs and Arkansas Razorbacks are teed up for a Top 10 showdown. The Dawgs and Hogs are set to start off a Saturday filled with action. No game may be more intense or impactful than this one, as things fix to get interesting between the hedges. Georgia is on the heels of routing the Vanderbilt Commodores 62-0. Arkansas, meanwhile, defeated the Texas A&M Aggies for the first time since 2011.

Arkansas has engineered quite the story. Second-year head coach Sam Pittman has had the Hogs ready each time they’ve taken the field. They’ve left without a loss, and are on the heels of a big one. They defeated A&M for the first time since the Aggies moved to the SEC in 2012. Undoing a long losing streak, and to a Top 10 Aggie team? Good vibes all the time in Fayetteville now.

Their work is not done, however. They’ll be tested like they never have on Saturday. The second-ranked Dawgs are elite. No other way to say it. They hit you in the mouth, and score on you at will. Outside of the early clunker against Clemson - which they won - they have put up points in bunches. It’s been hard for defenses to tame them. And their defense has been electric.

I’m expecting a very good one. The health of JT Daniels might be the biggest benefactor. He reportedly practiced all week and should be available. KJ Jefferson has proven himself worthy, but he’ll be facing the best defense he will all year. This one could be a treat.
