Exclusive:Sports Analysis from John Longshore
CBS 8 Sports Analyst John Longshore was on CBS 8 News at 6:00 to talk about Auburn's chances against struggling Arkansas on Saturday.
Longshore says because Auburn's had its own issues this season, but is a 10-point favorite, it makes Saturday's game one that head coach Gene Chizik can't afford to lose.
He thinks Auburn has confidence after its close loss to then-#2 LSU, but has to get a better performance out of quarterback Kiehl Frazier to take advantage of Arkansas' problems on defense.
The top-ranked Alabama Crimson Tide is off this week, but has suffered the loss of two more key players. Longshore says Bama can't lose any more of its top players in key positions.
