Paul Finebaum explains why this is a bad time for Arkansas to face Georgia
The Arkansas Razorbacks are riding high this week after a 20-10 win over Texas A&M on Saturday in Dallas.
Now, they’re ranked in the top 10, but there’s no rest for a banged-up team that had QB KJ Jefferson and star WR Treylon Burks miss time during Saturday’s game with injury.
So, can the Hogs go into Georgia on Saturday and keep the good times going? SEC Network analyst Paul Finebaum weighed in on the Razorbacks during a podcast appearance this week (via On3 Sports):
“The question, really, now is, ‘Can Arkansas keep doing this?’ Finebaum said on the ESPN College Football Podcast. “Fundamentally, they’re really a strong team.
“(KJ) Jefferson is banged up, you don’t know what his condition is and it’s unfortunate that they don’t have Auburn this week, or Mississippi State. They’re going to Georgia and that is not a good spot for them I don’t think. I don’t mean anything against the team, they’ll compete, but it’s a tough turnaround.”
Saturday’s atmosphere is sure to be an electric one, with College GameDay in town to preview the top-10 showdown.
