Why Fresno State Will Win

Fresno State heads to Fayetteville as double-digit underdogs in an SEC arena. Not ideal, but no team has started off the season as scorching from the field as the Bulldogs. In two games, Fresno has made 57.3% of its field goal attempts and 53.7% of its three-point field goal attempts, good for second in the country. There’s no way Fresno State replicates these numbers Friday night, but if the Bulldogs continue to be a threat from deep, it could make things interesting. Ray Bowles needs to step up defensively, as he’ll be matched up against an Arkansas back court of Daryl Macon and Jaylen Barford. The senior duo has combined to average 40.0 points per game through the first two games.
