What does Arkansas Nation feel about the number of offensive plays the Hogs will have in the matchup between our struggling offense and another strong Alabama defensive unit?
Currently, through five games including 2 cupcakes the Hogs are ranked 81st nationally averaging 67.8 offensive plays per game.
I will place the Over / Under line on this stat for this matchup at 55.
If we fall short of 55 it would mean that we are probably having multiple 3 and out drives, while if we get to 60 or more then we are picking up some first downs and extending drives.
I for one think this stat could tell us by halftime wether or not the Hogs can generate any sustained drives and keep our defense and their offense off of the field.
Having said that, the Alabama offense can strike quickly and doesn’t require running the majority of plays or win the time of possession game much as was the case back in our early 2000’s back to back behind the woodshed whippings that the Hands of the USC Trojans.
This is big boy football, the type of football Coach B was supposed to bring to Arkansas. He is going to have another opportunity to see exactly what that type of football looks like up close and personal.
Strap that chinstrap on tight because somebody could lose some teeth in this one.
Good luck Hogs, hope you shock me and the rest of the nation tomorrow.
I’ll be watching and hoping for a miracle!
