(Eds: APNewsNow. Will be updated. With AP Photos.) By KURT VOIGT AP Sports Writer Arkansas faces a difficult road in the wake of Saturday night's stunning 34-31 overtime loss to Louisiana-Monroe. The Razorbacks (1-1) played the second half and overtime without starting quarterback Tyler Wilson, who stayed in Little Rock following the upset after a hit to the head. Coach John L. Smith says Wilson's prognosis is good for this week's matchup against No. 1 Alabama. It just remains to be seen how the team reacts following such an unexpected loss. The school fell from No. 8 in last week's AP poll to unranked this week, the second-largest fall out of the poll ever. The Razorbacks were the first top-10 team to lose to a team from the Sun Belt Conference.
