To get a better feel for this Saturday's opponent, we reached out to someone who is around Missouri on a regular basis: Gabe DeArmond.

DeArmond is the publisher for PowerMizzou.com, the Missouri site in the Rivals network.

1. Is this a rivalry? Most Arkansas fans would tell you no but what say you?

Not yet. With Barry Odom there and Eli Drinkwitz being an Arkansas native and a guy that Arkansas at least had some level of interest in a year ago, it's taking a step. There are two things that have to happen for it really to be a rivalry. First of all, the games have to be important (and not important like who can finish fourth in their division, but they have to really matter). Second, both teams have to win some of them. Rivalries can't be manufactured and don't happen overnight. Eventually this could become one, but right now it's a little forced.

2. The Razorbacks had their turn with COVID last week, how are the Tigers looking? Any guys you expect out that could impact the game?
