After a third win in a row for (15-4) Arkansas on Saturday night against LSU, the Razorbacks are hungry for another “W” in their game against Vanderbilt on Tuesday at 8:30 p.m. at Memorial Stadium in Nashville. The (9-10) Vanderbilt Commodores with a (3-4) record within their own conference are coming off a 68-66 win over the No. 19 ranked Florida Gators. Within the SEC, the Razorbacks are (4-3), a close record to the Commodores which could make for a teeth-clenching game Tuesday night.
