Arkansas Razorbacks: What We Learned In Week 4, What To Look For In Week 5

Jim O’Connor-USA TODAY Sports

The Arkansas Razorbacks (3-1, 0-0) will not make it to a bowl game in Bret Bielema’s first season. Midway through the third quarter last week, the Hogs held a 24-7 lead over Rutgers, but the Scarlet Knights rolled off three-straight TDs to win 28-24.

As the win slipped right through the Razorbacks fingers, perhaps, so too did their chance at making a bowl game. It’s hard to find three more wins on Arkansas’ schedule. Of the Hogs’ final eight games, six are against nationally ranked opponents – three of which are in the top 10.

That leaves two games – Auburn (Nov. 2) and Mississippi State (Nov. 23) – against unranked teams; though, the Razorbacks will still likely be underdogs in both of those. At this point, a 3-9 season is a very real possibility for Arkansas. It’s hard to see a better case scenario than a 5-7 season. Actually, given what we’ve seen so far, that would be a triumph for Arkansas.

What to look for in Week 5: How competitive will the Razorbacks be against one of the best teams in the SEC – No. 10 Texas A&M? Arkansas doesn’t score that many points. So far, its defense is ranked 25th in scoring at 16.5 points per game. But that bears no relevance when the high-powered Aggies come to town. To have any chance at keeping it respectable, Arkansas will need to find more offense, a lot more offense, by Saturday.

On top of the game being decided in overtime, it was also a shootout (Big 12 style). The two incredible plays below also came about in OT, which helped lead Arkansas to a 53-52 victory.

College football, folks. College football.
