Nelson Chenault-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire



On Saturday, the struggling 1-3 Arkansas Razorbacks, led by the bankrupt John L. Smith, travel to Kyle Field. Their three losses have been a devastating over-time result to Louisiana-Monroe, a blowout at the hands of the Alabama Crimson Tide, and most recently, a shoot-out to the mighty Rutgers Scarlet Knights. Their only victory of the season came in week 1 against lowly Jacksonville State.
