Step Off the Bus, Gus: Malzahn Returns to Fayetteville with Tulsa

Double KAnalyst IOctober 29, 2008

(What a strange and long trip it has been since this picture was taken)

Well, the main event happened on Saturday night at Razorback Stadium, when The Nutt came into Fayetteville and stole a win. The matchup with Tulsa this Saturday at 1 p.m. is more like an undercard bout that still holds considerable interest.

Former Arkansas offensive coordinator Gus Malzahn, who lasted one tumultuous season under Houston Nutt at Arkansas, brings his wing-ding Tulsa Golden Shower offense to Fayetteville to take on the Hogs.

Tulsa is 7-0, ranked 19th in the AP poll and 18th in the BCS, and is in that "BCS buster" class of teams with the likes of Utah, Ball State, and Boise State.

Saturday is Homecoming for the Hogs, who are coming off of two winnable games that could have them 5-3 instead of the 3-5 record they currently hold. Should be an interesting matchup. Tulsa is an early 6.5-point favorite. Me thinks that is too much.

The 1 p.m. matchup is once again available on pay-per-view.
