Saturday To-Do: Arkansas Razorbacks v. LSU Tigers

Posted By on Fri, Nov 26, 2010 at 4:33 AM


2:30 p.m., War Memorial Stadium. Sold out.

The game may be sold out, but a War Memorial tailgate is never full. A grill suggestion courtesy of my cousin: Wrap a thick cut of pork or chicken around sausage and leftover dressing with kitchen twine — and bam! — a game day delicacy. Typically, a War Memorial game is more about drunken revelry and smoked meats than dedicated fandom, but this year, with a potential Sugar Bowl berth at stake (go Auburn!), Hog fans are likely to bring their game faces (which, of course, doesn't preclude food and drink so much as it puts a cap on it). Here are several things I'd be willing to bet on with regard to the game: Les Miles will make at least one stupid — but probably at least two — costly decision(s). LSU's ground game will give us the same sort of troubles Mississippi State's did. The crowd will be the difference maker. For a more astute preview, see A Boy Named Sooie here.
