Editor’s note: Welcome to the second season of Tusk to Tail, a special “web reality” presentation of the tailgating experience as organized, performed and perfected by a group of Hog fans who have been tailgating together for more than a decade. Members of the Tusk to Tail Team are Sean Casey, Jack Clark, Dale Cullins, Greg Houser, Craig May, David Rice and Mark Wagner. Tusk to Tail is managed by The City Wire and is sponsored by Powerhouse Seafood and Grill Restaurant.

The members of Tusk to Tail have been following the Hogs nearly all their lives, missing only one game in the past 15 years. Craig May, the “Godfather” of Tusk to Tail, will attend this Saturday his 101st consecutive Razorback football game.
Each week, they will be asked to pick the winners of 5 games, and answer one question.
Give it a shot! (Link here to the webform to make your picks.)
#14 South Carolina at Arkansas
#25 Missouri at #7 Georgia
#12 Oklahoma at Texas
#17 Florida at #10 LSU
#2 Oregon at #16 Washington
Who will be the Razorbacks' MVP this weekend against South Carolina?
• Sean Casey
Arkansas wins in an upset.
UGA squeaks by that northern team.
OU stomps Texas.
LSU beats tha Gatahs.
Washington upsets the Ducks.
The Razorback MVP will be DE Chris Smith who uses his opportunities in this game to pressure the QB getting some sacks.
• Jack Clark
South Carolina 20-10 over Hogs
Georgia will win
I hate Oklahoma more than Texas, so I'll go with the Horns
LSU will beat Florida
Oregon is unstoppable
I think our Aussie punter has a good game.
• Dale Cullins
I think the Hogs keep it close but our secondary is just not good. Shaw will find the open man and the Hogs lose 17-10.
UGA 31, MO 27
OU 42, TX 27
LSU 30, FL 23
OR 47, UW 35
I would like to say Brandon Allen but I'm thinking it will be Alex Collins. I think he will run hard and gain 112 yards this Saturday.
• Greg Houser
For the sake of being a Kool-aid drinker, I'll pick the Hogs to lose so they can win (I know...makes complete sense). South Cackalacka 24- Hogs 14. But the Piggies will win!
Georgia by 2 TDs. Don't care who or how, but Mizzou losing will be entertaining.
OU 45, UT 21. Woes for Mack Brown continue.
Oregon by 2 TDs. U dub is tired after the Stanford game. Good team though.
I'd like to say Hunter Henry. I'm surprised not to see more passes his way. Hope that changes next year.
• Craig May
MVP Alex Collins 16 carries 124 yards.
• David Rice
I hope I’m wrong, but I think Carolina may get the road win.
Georgia should destroy the Tigers. Mizzou’s unbeaten record is misleading.
Oklahoma wins going away.
LSU wins at Death Valley.
Oregon keeps marching toward a championship.
If the Hogs have a chance, it will be because of their running backs. I’ll go with Jonathan Williams this week.
• Mark Wagner
I'm going with Arkansas. They are at home & it's time for a win.
Oklahoma - One more nail in Mac Browns coffin
Zach Hocker. He kicks 4 FG's for us to win the game.
• The Guy Who Stole Dale’s Phone
Tough loss last week, as we were beat at our own game. The Gators were the more physical team and had fewer mistakes. We have a shot this week, and I expect a better effort at home, but I still think South Carolina will win a close one.
Collins- It would be nice to see him roll on SC like McFadden did on 07.
