The Texas Longhorns have another tough test facing them in the young season, heading to Fayetville, AR to take on the Arkansas Razorbacks in front of a sold-out crowd. Arkansas may have had a few down years, but the Razorbacks are definitely going to be ready for this game - a rivalry that dates back to the old Southwest Conference.
The Razorbacks opened their regular season with a come-from-behind win over the Rice Owls, thanks to some big defensive performances and a late surge from quarterback KJ Jefferson and the offense. Their star wide receiver Treylon Burks played hurt against Rice, but he should be healthy for the matchup Saturday and when he’s healthy he’s one of the top receiving threats in the country. The Razorbacks will also be without star linebacker Bumper Pool for the first half after he was ejected for targeting in the second half of the opener.
