Arkansas travels to Lubbock on Saturday to play Texas Tech. The Razorbacks are a three-point underdog but I think they will win straight up. Arkansas ended their almost year-long losing streak last weekend against Nicholls State. You can’t take much stock from that game but it is a step in the right direction especially after playing Auburn closely for a half in Week 1. Quarterback Brandon Allen has had a solid start to the season and running Alex Collins can do damage to the Red Raiders suspect defense.
Texas Tech is playing their last non-conference game of the season. They had close calls against Central Arkansas and UTEP in the first two weeks. The offense has been fine under quarterback Davis Webb but the defense has let up yards and points.
Texas Tech’s struggling defense is why I like Arkansas to win this game. Also the Razorbacks know they need to win this game before SEC play begins.
Pick: Arkansas (+3) over Texas Tech
