For today’s SEC links, Kentucky-Tennessee isn’t the only SEC basketball game on tap tonight. There is an important one in Fayetteville where Arkansas (3-3 in league play) meets Vanderbilt (5-1). Road wins have been few and far between in the league this year. Vanderbilt has two of them, beating South Carolina 67-57 in Columbia and Alabama 69-59 in Tuscaloosa. The Hogs and ‘Dores start at 9 p.m. on ESPN.
Meanwhile, it’s the eve of a southern holiday, national letter-of-intent day for college football. LSU got a big commitment Monday, and by big we mean a Jared Lorenzen-sized quarterback out of Mississippi. Arkansas is still in the hunt for the nation’s No. 1 recruit, Dorial Green-Beckham, a wide receiver out of Missouri.
Signing day is Wednesday.
