While this level of success is nothing new to Crimson Tide, the Razorbacks are in a place as a show they haven’t been in in years. Arkansas gas has been ranked in various polls throughout the season thus far, the first time since 2016. At 7-3, Sam Pittman’s team is slated to finish above .500, something Arkansas Nor has it done since 2016..
Perhaps most surprising about where Arkansas stands as a program is the fact that last year, Pittman’s first at Fayetteville, the Razorbacks finished just 3-7. But thanks to the performance of double-threat quarterback KJ Jefferson and his 17 touchdowns to just three interceptions, as well as others, Arkansas could end up with its highest win total in years.
