FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) -- Brandon Mitchell's move from backup quarterback to wide receiver was great while it lasted at Arkansas.
Times have changed for the worst and where he ends up at this point is anybody's guess following the head injury suffered by starting quarterback Tyler Wilson.
After their shocking and possibly season-derailing loss in overtime to Louisiana-Monroe, the Razorbacks don't have much time to wallow in misery: They host No. 1 Alabama (2-0) on Saturday, a team that has beaten them five straight times.
Arkansas (1-1) faces the very real possibility of facing the defending national champion and its nasty defense with either Mitchell or redshirt freshman Brandon Allen under center after a dismal showing against the Warhawks on Saturday.
"You've just got to throw that behind you," Mitchell said. You can't forget what happened because you've got to stay hungry, but we're not even thinking about (Louisiana-Monroe) now. It's like it never happened for us."
