Razorbacks up to #17 in AP poll

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (Univ. of Ark.) – Winners of five straight and fresh off a convincing 42-3 win against Texas State Saturday night, Arkansas moved up six spots to No. 18 in this week’s Amway Coaches Poll released on Sunday.

For just the fourth time since entering the SEC in 1992, the Razorbacks have won nine times over a 10-game stretch. Arkansas is one of 29 FBS teams that is 3-0 through the first three weeks of the season and one of 12 FBS programs to win at least nine of its last 10 games.

Arkansas also made its first appearance this season in the FWAA-NFF Super 16 Poll, checking in at No. 16. The Associated Press top 25 will also be released on Sunday.

Over its last 10 games, Arkansas is 4-0 away from the friendly confines of Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium, including three true road wins over top 25 teams (No. 18 Ole Miss, No. 9 LSU, No. 15 TCU). Led by a pair of touchdown passes from quarterback Austin Allen and two on the ground by sophomore Rawleigh Williams, Arkansas was able to hit the 40-point plateau for the second straight game and for the seventh time over its last 10 games, which is tied for the most in the nation over that span.

The Razorbacks will now turn their attention to Saturday’s showdown with No. 13 Texas A&M (3-0, 1-0 SEC) at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. The last time both teams were both ranked in a matchup came in 2011 when Tyler Wilson threw for 510 yards and three touchdowns to lead No. 14 Arkansas over No. 18 Texas A&M, 42-38, in Arlington.

Tickets to the Southwest Classic next week at AT&T Stadium are still available and can be purchased online here.
