The Arkansas Razorbacks (2-4) are hosting the Kentucky Wildcats (1-5) in a Week 6 matchup between two disappointing SEC programs.

Both schools were hoping to have winning records going into what could have been a marquee contest, but this now becomes an afterthought game that will likely not have any meaningful implications on the CFB landscape or even within the conference.

Let’s take a look at where you can watch the game, a few players to keep an eye on, a prediction for the final score and much more.

BCS/Top 25 Implications

Considering these are two of the worst teams the SEC has to offer, there is little riding on the outcome of this game.

Aside from big-picture stuff, any time Southeastern Conference foes match up, anything could happen.

With three teams currently in the top five of the AP Poll (and seven of 14 ranked in the Top  25), there is a chance that Arkansas or Kentucky is able to flip their season around and get some quality wins against highly regarded foes.

A turnaround would all start on Saturday with a W. 


Arkansas Player to Watch: Dennis Johnson

Johnson put the team on his back against the Auburn Tigers in Week 6, getting a season-high 17 carries and taking them for 76 yards and two touchdowns.

The senior RB from Texarkana, Arkansas is understandably frustrated with how his team has been performing as of late, and was determined to lead the Hogs to victory.

Coach John L. Smith would be wise to keep giving Johnson carries, especially if he’s going to produce and help win games.


Kentucky Player to Watch: Patrick Towles

The freshman QB saw action in the last game, completing five of six passes for 71 yards and a TD before leaving with an ankle injury.

If he’s healthy in time for this upcoming contest against Arkansas, expect coach Joker Phillips to highly consider using Towles over Jalen Whitlow, another freshman signal-caller.

At 6’5” and 242 pounds, Towles definitely has the size to play the position and could help return UK football to respectability.


Prediction: Arkansas 42, Kentucky 24

While neither team is great on paper, Arkansas has the edge and seems to be turning things around with a win over Auburn. The Tigers aren’t exactly an elite team, but it should give the Hogs the confidence they need to start righting their ship.

UK’s sole win in 2012 came against a lowly Kent State squad that doesn’t belong on the field with SEC programs. The Wildcats haven’t even been able to hang with their other conference opponents and will once again be defeated in Week 6.
