The Hogs manhandled the Florida International Golden Panthers in Fayetteville yesterday by a final score of 58-10. Depending on which article you read in the Dem Gaz, the Hogs either played down to their opponent (per Wally Hall), or pretty much dominated, scoring 10 times in 14 possessions (per Tom Murphy). I have yet to watch the film, but I'm going to take Murphy's point of view. I at least think he probably watched and comprehended the game. Or it could have been that Wally wrote that column after media days and pulled it out and printed it and took a day off.
South Carolina suffered a tough loss last night in a great game against the Tennessee Volunteers. That sets up an ESPN matchup between a 5-3 Razorback squad and a 6-3 Gamecock team at 7:00 next Saturday. The game will be on either ESPN or the Deuce, and the network will announce which on Monday.
Great day of college football yesterday. Mississippi State pulled off the big upset against Kentucky. Georgia and Florida played a great one, with Georgia getting the win. Oregon got a late interception to seal the victory over USC. Tennessee followed General Neyland's maxims late night and won the kicking game in overtime to beat South Carolina. Lots of good games, lots of big plays, especially in the SEC.
