This preview is a little short this time as it has been a busy week but here is my preview of the game
This game may be the biggest game the Vols have had in a long time. With a win they have a great shot at playing in the Georgia Dome for the SEC championship. If they lose, then they hopes of playing for an SEC championship is just about done. Then you have Phillip Fulmer. This game will also decided Fulmer's future. I truly believe that if the Vols make it to the SEC championship game, Fulmer will be back. But if he loses this game (Their SEC championship hopes are probably gone), I feel he is gone. That is a lot of pressure on him.
The key to this game is going to be if the Vols can stop Arkansas running game. If they can stop it or slow it down then the Vols win the game. If not then it will be a long game. Arkansas averages 316 rushing yards per game. Tennessee should not have to worry much about the pass as Casey Dick and Arkansas pass attack is just plain bad. Casey Dick ranks in the bottom part of the SEC in just about every category. You have to try to stop the run and let Arkansas try to beat you with the pass. If you can do that then you have a good shot at beating Arkansas. I don't see the Vols offense having much problems moving the ball and putting up some points on Arkansas.
I don't see the Vols stopping the rushing attack of Arkansas but I do see them slowing it down just enough and pulling out a huge win and keeping them in the driver's seat for the SEC East crown and a date in the Georgia Dome
