TODAY's LOCKS

LOCK: Auburn -7.5 Arkansas -7.5


2-0 in bowl locks


As I stated in my post a few days ago, this is the bowl game I've been waiting for and is my biggest bowl lock of the year.  I do not see this game even being close.  Arkansas is averaging 308 passing yds a game (13th in nation) while K State is giving up 268 passing yds per game (99th in nation).  It is true that K state can run the ball, 194 yds/game and Arkansas is giving up 175 yds per game (75th in nation), but take a closer look, shall we?????


At first blush, Arkansas run defense numbers look horid, but Arkasas also played the top 2 teams in the nation (K Sate did not).  Against those teams Arkansas gave up 286 yds to LSU and 1097 yds to Bama.  AND BOTH OF THOSE GAMES WERE AWAY GAMES FOR ARKANSAS.  ARKANSAS ONLY 2 LOSES WERE TO THE TOP 2 TEAMS IN THE NATION ON THE ROAD!!!!  Kansas State has not played anyone even close to the caliber of teams Auburn has and go BLOWN out at home against an OK Oklahoma team.  I think Tyler Wilson may be one of the most unerrated QB's in the nation and I see him a Jarius Wright lighting up the Wildcats tomorrow night!
