The game isn't even over yet, but watching Arkansas play a Georgia team that isn't anywhere close to what it normally is, especially with the loss of suspended WR AJ Green, and it's clear the Aggies can play with Hogs when the teams meet in a couple of weeks. Maybe I have too much faith in the Aggies, who so far have fared well against their Texas Class 2A TAPPS schedule.
The Aggies have considerably more toys on offense to present challenges to a Hogs defense that has yet to be tested by any offense this season. Pacing will be vital; they can't score too quickly and put a defense that is still proving itself back on the field too quickly.
It will all depend on a defense, and whether it can pressure Hogs QB Ryan Mallett. The future NFL draft pick doesn't have the skill surrounding him that Aggies QB Jerrod Johnson does, but he is one of the best at his position in the nation.
The problem is no one has hit Mallett yet. For the Aggies to have a chance, the quarterback must go down and he must go down hard.
