Why Arkansas will win
Can do the Arkansas offensive the again?
Just when it looked like the team was in big, big trouble when it came to bowl eligibility, they overcame the two-game losing streak with an emphatic win over Ole Miss with 335 rushing yards and KJ Jefferson, who scored 77th % of his passes hit.
Just do that again and the already bowl-eligible team will increase their bowl spot.

Missouri is 0-4 when conceding 144+ yards. Arkansas has rushed 144 yards or more against all but LSU.
