To the rest of the country, this game would look like an SEC team playing in a non-conference sandwich spot in November.
But there will be no overlook when Arkansas kicks at 11 a.m. locally at Razorback Stadium, as head coach Chad Morris is struggling to get victories as an SEC coach.
In Morris’ first season, the Razorbacks had two victories over Tulsa and Eastern Illinois. The count for 2019 is at two wins over Portland State and Colorado State.
Saturday, former Arkansas quarterback Ty Storey comes to town with a Western Kentucky team that’s much improved from last season, and boasts an excellent defense. Hence, the point spread being only Arkansas -1.5.

Wilson: Offenses May Struggle
Western Kentucky comes to town with two features that should have gamblers looking at the under. Former Razorback quarterback Ty Storey is now the starter at Western Kentucky, giving defensive coordinator John Chavis plenty of ideas of how to attack the Hilltoppers offense.
Western Kentucky is outside the top 100 in rush and pass explosiveness offensively, giving the Razorbacks a chance to win a ballgame.
