2013: 3-9 (0-8 SEC)
Arkansas was the only team in the SEC West to miss a bowl and it’s not hard to see why. Having to play Auburn, Alabama, Ole Miss, LSU, Mississippi State, and Texas A&M makes things a bit more difficult. They started 3-0 but only beat non-major Samford by 10, a warning sign for the future. They lost at Rutgers then the entire eight-team SEC schedule, six of them ranked. They were only within a touchdown in the last two. In consecutive weeks they lost to #14 South Carolina and #1 Alabama by a combined 104-7. After many great years at Wisconsin, Bret Bielema’s first year in Arkansas didn’t go as planned. But there were a few bright spots to take note of, like Alex Collins (1,026 rush yards) and Jonathan Williams (900 rush yards, 6.0 yards per carry) in the running game. Arkansas ran the ball better than any other phase of their game. Quarterback Brandon Allen (13 touchdowns, 10 interceptions) was inconsistent. Look for the Razorbacks to continue with the run attack. Their schedule starts unfairly tough at national finalist Auburn. They host A&M, Alabama, and Georgia in consecutive weeks and LSU later in the season. In an odd quirk they have five home games in a row in the middle of the season.
The Razorbacks operate under head coach Bret Bielema at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium, which holds just about 76,000 roaring fans. They have 13 conference titles, and 39 bowl appearances. The NFL plays home to many former Razorbacks, but most notably running backs: Darren McFadden, Peyton Hillis, and Felix Jones. Arkansas has only one National Championship under their belt, which came in the memorable season of 1964. Since then the Razorbacks have been in and out of bowl games, making a run for the National Championship again in the 2010 season. They look to get right back to a bowl this fall.
