College Football Odds
Virginia Tech -6.5
Total: 61 points
The underdogs have covered in 19 of the last 25 bowl games to date. That's some reassuring news for Arkansas here as the Razorbacks are catching some points against the Hokies in what should be a great game. Arkansas will have to overcome some problems from the SEC in bowl games though as the conference is just 1-2 and Mississippi State had to block a field goal on the final play against Miami (OH). That hasn't made for a good showing for the perceived best conference in college football, but a win here would certainly work.
The Hogs started 3-0 on the season but alternated wins and losses the final nine games. That culminated in a real tough loss to Missouri to end the season and it feels like Bret Bielema needs to pick up a win here for the Hog faithful. The Razorbacks are going to line up quite a bit and run the football in this one, which is something they really do quite often.
Rawleigh Williams has seven 100-yard rushing games this season. He's rushing for better than 5.5 yards per attempt this season and will be critical against a Hokie defense that allows just under four yards per attempt.
Virginia Tech should be able to put up points themselves and head coach Justin Fuente is carving out a nice spot for himself in Blacksburg. Jerod Evans is a strong quarterback for Virginia Tech that has completed almost 64 percent of his passes and he also leads the team in rushing.
