Arkansas would be 28th in AFCA USA TODAY Coaches Poll extended

·1 min read

Arkansas didn’t find its way back inside the Top 25 yet, but the Razorbacks are inching that way.

Coach Sam Pittman’s team, fresh off a 45-3 pasting of Arkansas-Pine Bluff, picked up 41 points in voting. If the poll extended, that would make Arkansas the 28th-ranked team in FBS.

Last week was the first time the Razorbacks had fallen out of the poll since after Week 2 when the Hogs beat then-No. 15 Texas. With a bye week on the slate now, it’s unlikely Arkansas jumps back in after Week 9. However, a win over Mississippi State on November 6, could see it happen.

The SEC had six teams represented in the poll after Week 8. No. 1 Georgia, No. 3 Alabama, No. 9 Ole Miss, No. 12 Kentucky, No. 14 Texas A&M and No. 21 Auburn were all ranked. Arkansas and Florida picked up votes.

Arkansas is 5-3 overall and 1-3 in the SEC with four games left. After Mississippi State, Arkansas travels to LSU and Alabama, then returns to Fayetteville for the season finale against Missouri the day after Thanksgiving.
