It’s been musical chairs for the Arkansas quarterbacks. The music stops and Ben Hicks gives the Razorbacks a much-needed victory. Arkansas, 24-23

Dudley E. Dawson, Hawgs Illustrated

Mississippi State runs the ball well. Arkansas doesn’t stop the run. It certainly is a game the Razorbacks could win, but … Mississippi State, 21-17

Harry King, Hawgs Illustrated

Two teams in a downward spiral and the winner will be the one with the fewest turnovers. Arkansas, 23-21

Seth Campbell, WholeHogSports.com

Both of these teams will come limping into Fayetteville. The team that makes the least amount of mistakes will win and the way Arkansas is playing I’d put my money on State. Mississippi State, 35-21

Matt Jones, WholeHogSports.com

Lost in Mississippi State’s struggles is a good run game that could give Arkansas trouble. The Razorbacks should compete, but their quarterback and offensive line situations do not instill confidence in their ability to win a conference game. Mississippi State, 27-20

Scottie Bordelon, WholeHogSports.com

Arkansas desperately needs a conference win to begin November, but it’s difficult to predict the Razorbacks getting over the hump in league play with inconsistency at the quarterback position. Mississippi State, 31-21

Alyssa Orange, Pig Trail Nation

This is a winnable game for Arkansas, but with the quarterback struggles it’s hard to give them a W. Mississippi State, 24-17

John Nabors, The Morning Rush

Arkansas has its best chance of winning an SEC game versus the Bulldogs. But they can’t get moving on offense and State takes advantage. Mississippi State, 31-10

Tommy Craft, The Morning Rush

So do we have another quarterback controversy with John Stephen Jones entering the picture? Maybe another change would produce much-needed consistency? Mississippi State, 31-24

Tye Richardson, Half Time

Everybody knew the Auburn and Alabama games back-to-back would be painful. State comes to Fayetteville reeling, but leaves on a high note. Mississippi State, 31-27

Chip Souza, Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

Any time your quarterback position has more candidates than a national presidential convention, you know you have issues. And there are no real reasons to think it will get much better. Mississippi State, 28-10
