5TH QUARTER MAGAZINE:
Arkansas definitely looked like they had a shot to contend in the SEC East this season, and one of the main reasons was their start quarterback, Tyler Wilson. But last week the Razorbacks lost Wilson to an injury, and according to sources he wont play in this weekend’s game. And if that wasn’t bad enough, the #1 ranked Crimson Tide are in town.
The Razorbacks already slipped up when they lost to Louisiana-Monroe in a monumental upset. To add insult to injury, Arkansas went from being ranked #8 in the AP polls to being unranked this week.
The Hogs just can’t seem to catch a break lately. But luckily for them, they get to take on Alabama at home. If Arkansas’ offense can put up some numbers against the Crimson Tide’s elite defense, they might still stand a chance. Arkansas also doesn’t have to face South Carolina or LSU until the the of the season. Razorback fans better pray Wilson is healthy by then.
