FAYETTEVILLE – Alabama is Bret Bielema’s most looked-forward to game. A close second comes LSU.
LITTLE ROCK — Dissecting Arkansas 53, Ole Miss 52, start with Brandon Allen’s save, Hunter Henry’s wherewithal, and a fortuitous bounce. Next, include a helping hand from Ole Miss. Then, mix in Bret Bielema’s gutsy decision to forego a second overtime and win or lose on one play that was as unlikely as the final outcome.
OXFORD, Mississippi – The excitement of Arkansas’ 53-52 overtime win over Ole Miss on Saturday has moved on to stage two: What will Hunter Henry’s throwback-lateral to Alex Collins, which converted a 4th-and-25 to save the game in the fourth quarter, be called?
OXFORD, Mississippi – Brandon Allen was the hero of Arkansas’ 53-52 overtime win over Ole Miss on Saturday. Besides his flair for the dramatic, he also had his best career game from an objective, statistical standpoint.
OXFORD, Mississippi – There are specks of gray in Brandon Allen’s 23-year-old black hair. Three years as a starting quarterback at Arkansas during one of the toughest times in team history have contributed to the salt-and-pepper. Allen has been scapegoat for the team’s struggles for much of his time as starter.
FAYETTEVILLE – No one at the Fred W. Smith Football Center is about to count blessings or chickens before they’ve hatched, as the old phrase goes. The coaches, staff and players who roam those hallways and basements know, though, a win Saturday against Ole Miss and a lot of the guff they’ve taken through the season’s first nine weeks will be put out of mind.
FAYETTEVILLE – Arkansas had little trouble against a Division II opponent to open the Razorbacks exhibition season at Bud Walton Arena on Thursday night.
FAYETTEVILLE – There is no “Good Chad” and “Bad Chad” in Oxford, Mississippi, the way there was for the previous Ole Miss quarterback. There isn’t yet, anyway.
FAYETTEVILLE – A first true glimpse of the Arkansas basketball team will be seen tonight at Bud Walton Arena.
FAYETTEVILLE – A .500 record stares Arkansas in the face. Two games remain on the road. Two games remain at home. Par is needed for a second consecutive bowl-eligible season. And the team with perhaps the most talent of any of those four remaining opponents comes first.
FAYETTEVILLE – The 63-28 Arkansas win over Tennessee-Martin will largely be forgotten all around the Fred W. Smith Football Center by Monday morning. There are more important matters with which to contend now.
FAYETTEVILLE - Jared Cornelius’ grandmother didn’t want to see her grandson back on the field only six weeks after suffering a broken arm against Texas Tech.
LITTLE ROCK — Unbeknownst to candy-seeking superheroes and pint-sized Halloween rookies, Arkansas athletics director Jeff Long did them a favor when he hired Tennessee-Martin for an Oct. 31 game in Fayetteville.
FAYETTEVILLE – Arkansas’ goals against Tennessee-Martin were simple Saturday.
FAYETTEVILLE – Alex Collins ran for five touchdowns against UT-Martin in Arkansas’ 63-28 win at Donald W. Reynolds Stadium on Halloween.
FAYETTEVILLE – Arkansas versus Tennessee-Martin is not the most appealing game on the Razorbacks schedule. No one is claiming it is, of course.
FAYETTEVILLE - The Arkansas 2016 football schedule was released Thursday and it features a batch of high-profile games at Donald W. Reynolds Stadium.
FAYETTEVILLE – Saturday was not the first Bret Bielema publicly scolded his all-conference running back. Alex Collins had drawn his coach’s spleen more than a couple times in both their nearly three years together.
FAYETTEVILLE – Dre Greenlaw was once an afterthought on the Arkansas depth chart. The Fayetteville High School product needed to put on weight. He needed to learn a new position. He needed time to mature.
FAYETTEVILLE – As much as a fan base collectively exhaled after Arkansas’ four-overtime win against Auburn on Saturday, Brandon Allen admitted he did much the same.
