For much of the season, Mississippi State has looked like a stronger program than Arkansas. Over the last two weeks, that perception has changed a bit as the Bulldogs throttled Missouri and were then throttled by Alabama, and Arkansas picked up a wild overtime victory over Ole Miss and took it to LSU Saturday.
The folks making odds took notice, and they installed the Razorbacks as three-point home favorites over Mississippi State. Not too long after the odds were released, the line shifted to the Razorbacks being 3.5-point favorites.
Fayetteville has not historically been kind to Mississippi State, but the Bulldogs picked up a huge win in the Ozark Foothills.
We'll have to wait until Saturday to see how this one will play out.
