Solid schedules for both. Edge to Missouri because they only lost to one team all year and had two great wins over BCS bowl teams.

The Tigers get the edge here too, if only because they've played better most weeks - the Hogs have just been too erratic.

The Line: Arkansas +3.5

The Story: It's all about the D - will the Hogs be able to stop the Tigers' spread attack? Will the Tigers be able to stop McFadden & Jones? Whichever D can contain will win.

The Call: Missouri by 7

The Result: Missouri 38-7 = The Razorbacks couldn't get anything going on the ground except for when they put the ball on it, while the Tigers just ran wild. Great overall season for Missouri.
