2. Kendrick Rogers has 150 yards and 2 TDs

One thing that has become crystal clear over the course of the 2018 season is Kendrick Rogers is a truly special talent. He was mostly held in check against Alabama, save for a couple nice catches, but he went off against Clemson for seven catches, 120 yards and two touchdowns.

A&M wide receivers have had some success against Arkansas over the last few seasons. Obviously this 2018 version is a new team, but Christian Kirk had five catches, 110 yards and two touchdowns last season, Josh Reynolds had four catches for 141 yards in 2016, Kirk had eight catches for 173 yards and two touchdowns in 2015 (Reynolds also had over 100 yards in that game), Edward Pope had four catches for 151 yards and two touchdowns in 2014, Mike Evans had six catches for 116 yards and two touchdowns in 2013 and Ryan Swope had five catches for 141 yards in 2012.

Something about the Arkansas game brings out the best in the Aggies’ leading receiver and Rogers should be able to display his big play ability for a couple of scores and a ton of yards.
