Periscope: #19/22 Vanderbilt vs. Arkansas

The Arkansas Razorbacks come to town looking to beat Vanderbilt for the first time since 2007 (a season that was particularly enjoyable for Commodore fans). Arkansas comes in having beaten Auburn in its last game and has yet to beat an SEC East team this season, while Vanderbilt has not yet lost to an SEC West team this year.

Arkansas will be the sixteenth best offensive team and the tenth best defensive team the Commodores will have played.

Four Factors: Vanderbilt has large advantages in OReb%, FTRate, and eFG%. Arkansas has a slim edge in TO%. Prediction: Vanderbilt will control OReb%, FTRate, and eFG% and Arkansas will probably win TO%.
