Happy Halloween: The Arkansas - Tulsa Preview

Arkansas 3-5 (1-4) vs. Tulsa 8-0
Homecoming, Reynolds Razorback Stadium
Kickoff: 1pm
Line: Tulsa favored by 6.5


It's homecoming time in Razorback land this weekend which means thousands upon thousands will make the trek back to their alma mater to pay tribute to the university that paved their ways to life's riches.

Tulsa also comes to town with their national ranking and high-falutin' offense under former Springdale genius Gus Malzahn. The Golden Showers bring their #1 ranked scoring offense (55 pts. per game), their #5 passing offense (346 yards per game), and their #1 ranking in yards per game (605) to Razorback stadium where it will all come crashing down tomorrow.

You know why?

Because it's about damn time. That's why.

The Final Analysis:

There's an old country song by Don Williams called "Tulsa Time" and I'm saying that Tulsa's time is up, baby! The Malzahn fling and zing game plan will not fly (literally) on Saturday at Reynolds Razorback Stadium. The perfect record? Gone! The national ranking? Gone! The BCS plans? Gone! Your time is up, Tulsa. Tomorrow begins the Novembuh to Remembuh in Razorback land as Michael Smith shreds the Tulsa defense for about 500 yards and 7 touchdowns, and the Hogs win this one 75-60.

(ahh, the good ol' days... last year)
