The thing about the Arkansas Razorbacks is that they are a good team, but when they go up against elite teams they fall flat. They played both the LSU and Alabama and lost both 38-14 and 41-17, respectively. However, they did beat Texas A&M, Clemson and South Carolina (minus Marcus Lattimore), all whom were ranked in the top-15 at the time of the game.
In this matchup, Arkansas should be able to put up some yards against the Oregon secondary which is 83rd in the nation in pass defense. Oregon is the more balanced of the two teams and are well above average in the running game and good enough in the passing game to be dangerous against most teams.
