For the second week in a row, the Razorbacks had to come from behind to beat an inferior opponent on the road. They're home for the next three weeks, with only South Carolina this weekend representing a real threat. They should have a chance to prove their worth on the Friday after Thanksgiving with a matchup in Baton Rouge against LSU—the only problem for Arkansas? They could very easily remain a top 10 BCS team and not make a BCS bowl if Alabama and LSU both remain ranked ahead of them. —Jack Erwin
