The teams have met 12 times, with the first meeting in 1906 and six of them coming since the Tigers joined the SEC in 2012.   

Kickoff from Razorback Stadium is set for 3:30 p.m. ET on CBS.

Before making any Missouri vs. Arkansas picks or college football predictions, you need to see what the SportsLine Projection Model has to say.

The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every FBS college football game 10,000 times. Over the past five-plus years, the proprietary computer model has generated a stunning profit of almost $3,700 for $100 players on its top-rated college football picks against the spread. It also enters Week 13 of the 2021 season on a 39-25 run on all top-rated college football side picks. Anyone who has followed it has seen HUGE returns.

Three of the Razorbacks' four losses were to ranked teams (Alabama, Georgia, Ole Miss) and the other to Auburn. But they beat ranked Texas, Texas A&M and Mississippi State teams, and quarterback KJ Jefferson is a star. He has 2,316 passing yards and 496 on the ground, accounting for 25 TDs while throwing three interceptions. He and receiver Treylon Burks (975 yards, 10 TDs) could have a field day against a defense that yields 447 yards per game.             

Missouri holds a 9-3 edge in the all-time meetings and has won five straight. That includes a 50-48 barn-burner last season when Tigers scored 27 points in the fourth quarter and the teams combined for more than 1,200 yards. Tyler Badie rushed for 79 on just six carries in a backup role, but he is the team's biggest threat now. He has rushed for 355 yards over the past two games, wins against Florida and South Carolina, and has 1,720 total yards and 17 TDs.       

The SportsLine model has simulated Friday's Missouri vs. Arkansas matchup 10,000 times, and the results are in. We can tell you that the model is leaning Under on the total, and it also says one side of the spread is hitting in well over 50 percent of simulations.
