I have Tennessee penciled in at 8-4 this season, with losses to Oklahoma, Arkansas, Florida and Alabama.

But this may make a fundamental difference in the Hogs’ visit to Neyland Stadium in early October. Their star running back, Jonathan Williams, is out for the season.

Williams rushed for 1,190 yards and 12 touchdowns last season, and ranks 10th in Arkansas school history with 2,321 yards. 

But lest anyone think Arkansas is done for, the Hogs also have Alex Collins in the backfield. He rushed for 1,100 yards and 12 touchdowns last year.
