11. Arkansas Razorbacks

Record: 2-0

Previous Ranking: 11 (Trend: — )

Last Week: Arkansas 31, Samford 21

This Week: vs. Southern Mississippi

Next Week: at Rutgers

The Bielema train keeps rolling after a scare against Samford. Arkansas was losing until the fourth quarter when Jonathan Williams scored from one-yard out to give the Razorbacks the lead with 13 minutes left in the game. The passing attack managed just 125 yards and Arkansas lost two fumbles, which made the defenses 231 total yard performance that much more important.

The loss accented the lack of seasoned talent the Razorbacks have at quarterback, and how it will effect their ability to win games in the SEC. Hope may be on the way in the form of Rafe Peavey, a duel-threat four-star quarterback from Bolivar, Missouri. But until then Allen is going to have to figure something out if Arkansas is going to try to make their way back to a bowl game.

Arkansas has Southern Miss and Rutgers before starting their gauntlet against Texas A&M, Florida, South Carolina, and Alabama.
