Turnover Diff +3 -2
When looking at the stat's the key one is Turnover diff. This will be a key stat in the game. Both teams will need to hold on to the ball to win. Virginia has the advantage in this area. Also both team will look to get the run game going.
Keys to the game
-Winning the Turnover battle
-The Run game
-3rd down conversions
-Red zone TD's
I believe the winning team will be the one that wins the TO battle and does the best job of establishing the run game. Both teams like to get the run game going. If the Razorbacks want to win they can't allow the Colts to get the lead and just run it up their throat. They must keep the pressure on and force Virginia out of their comfort zone.
Arkansas RB Alex Collins (22 car, 201 yards, and 2 TD's)
-Even though Collins his a true freshman he didn't play like one against ULL. He played the featured back role well. Expect Ark to get him the ball early and often.
Virginia RB Kevin Parks (22 car, 135 yds, and 4 tds)
-Parks has a big game to start the season versus Ball State. He raked up 4 TD's on the ground.
Virginia seems to have the advantage in this game. They are at home and looked better in their opening game. This will be a tough game for Arkansas to win but, they need to find a way to get some much needed momentum.
