Staying on schedule is going to be incredibly important for Arkansas this year. The Hogs' offense is in complete control on standard downs, when the offense has to account for the pass, but on passing downs against the Aggies, they either made ineffectual runs or ineffective passes. Arkansas is still limited, but the Hogs are maximizing the effect of their one true strength (rushing), which is both impressive and scary. If they ever shore up those weaknesses...
Meanwhile, kudos to A&M for closing out drives defensively when it had the chance and for coming back late with some young personnel. A growing experience for both teams here.
