College Football Betting: Texas Bowl – ARKANSAS RAZORBACKS vs. TEXAS LONGHORNS (12/29)

COLLEGE FOOTBALL — December 29

Texas Bowl @ Houston
ARKANSAS vs. TEXAS

(GetThatBet Line: Arkansas -7, Total 43) — Arkansas clearly had its moments this season, scoring shutouts against both LSU and Ole Miss, and taking Mississippi State and Alabama right down to the wire. They played very much like a Top 25 team. Texas had a choppy campaign, but put together a decent three-game win streak, which included a victory over West Virginia, and was competitive defensively as the pieces started to come together for Charlie Strong. With extra prep time, he’ll have a better opportunity to slow down this Arkansas attack, mindful of the fact that the Longhorns held a team like TCU to their season low and suffered a crushing defeat only because they turned the ball over too much. Neither of these quarterbacks is necessarily refined enough to stretch defenses on a consistent basis, and the mindset of these two hard-nosed coaches is to pound the ball. They have also trended “under” – Texas in four of its last five, and Arkansas in each of its last four.
