Never Compare Scores: Arkansas/Arkansas State vs New Mexico State Edition

JONESBORO, ARK — You’re never supposed to compare scores. So, let’s compare statistics instead.

Arkansas State won their conference game Saturday night in New Mexico. The Razorbacks faced a similar opponent in Fayetteville earlier in the season. How did those two games stack up against each other?

Let me preface by saying that I am not trying to compare these two teams in any way. They are two completely different teams in totally difference conferences. However, they do now have a common opponent. So, might as well look at the stats, right?

Draw whatever conclusions you want. I am simply presenting facts for you to interpret. Enjoy!

*Note: Arkansas hosted the Aggies, while the Red Wolves traveled to New Mexico for their game*
