Ruffolo's MID-DAY CFB TOP PLAY #3
Auburn Tigers (1-1) vs Arkansas Razorbacks (1-1)

I gave a lot of flack to Arkansas after blowing it in their first game against Georgia, but bottom line is that the Razorbacks still earned a cover against the Bulldogs, and in this line of work, that’s most important. With that said, both Arkansas and Auburn were beat up by Georgia, but Arkansas had arguably the more impressive win of the two this season, stifling Mississippi State’s air raid offense while Auburn tossed around a rusty Kentucky team in their opener. Something just feels off about Auburn right now, and I’m not sure I’m ready to put all of my eggs in Auburn’s basket with Bo nix under center. Arkansas has an experienced arm in Feleipe Franks under center and I think the Razorbacks can make enough plays to keep this one within the number. I’ll take Arkansas and the points as my premium pick for this game.
