Clearly, Ty Storey is the team’s MVP. He has developed the knack of figuring out what the defense is giving the Hogs in the new Chad Morris offense. If he’s upright, the Hogs should win. If not, Cole Kelley will have to improve. It’s hard to say with great confidence that there are any games left that Arkansas should win on form, but this may be one of them. Depth is the issue. Maleek Williams might have to bail out the battered running back group. Arkansas, 27-17

It was easy to mark down an Arkansas win over Tulsa before the season started, especially since he Razorbacks have won the last 18 games in the series. But watching the Golden Hurricane the last few weeks had put this one in doubt for me with injuries possibly robbing the home team of some key playmakers. But still, hard to go against that streak. Arkansas, 31-20

Assuming Ty Storey and/or Rakeem Boyd are back and healthy, Arkansas should get its second win. If not, look out because Tulsa just took a good team to the wire a week ago. Arkansas, 35-20

Tulsa is not a bad team. It played Texas tight early in the season and nearly knocked off a ranked South Florida team last weekend. It won’t be pretty and it won’t be easy, but Arkansas’ losing streak ends. Arkansas, 27-24

Bart Pohlman, Sports Talk with Bo

Arkansas gets a chance to snap a nine-game losing streak against FBS teams with a Tulsa team coming to town that is been mostly bad this season. No lead is safe with the Hogs right now, but they should be able to handle the Golden Hurricane (if key offensive personnel are healthy). Arkansas, 31-17

Bo Mattingly, Sports Talk with Bo

Both teams are coming off tough losses, games they could have won. Arkansas’ ability to bounce back may be determined by how many running backs they have available. Arkansas, 38-27

Harry King, Hawgs Illustrated

Both teams will have to bounce back from tough losses and converting more often than 2-of-9 on third down will help turn some possessions into touchdowns rather than field goals. Arkansas, 31-27

Tommy Craft, ESPN Arkansas

Both Arkansas and Tulsa are having incredibly tough seasons. Timing of this game could not be better for the Hogs. In a season of uncertainty, surely the Hogs can rally to stop a 1-5 Tulsa team and end a six-game skid. Arkansas, 38-28
