It’s pretty simple. Don’t lose. Arkansas Pine-Bluff (15-19, 10-9 SWAC) is No. 274 in the RPI standings right now. No. 4 Ole Miss (34-11, 12-9 SEC) is No. 8 in the RPI and they will drop no matter what, win or lose, but dear Lord losing is a bad look. Especially if you stumble ANYWHERE ELSE on the schedule before Hoover. So the best plan is to just not slip up here.
Oh, and there are $1 hot dog sandwiches and kids get in free tonight.
