FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) — Sam Pittman has done in 12 games what the two previous football coaches at Arkansas couldn’t in five seasons.

Arkansas leaped from unranked to No. 20 in the poll.

Arkansas Looks Like Leader for Star Safety Recruit Naeten Mitchell from Texas

The class of 2022 is getting a majority of the attention from fans and scouts these days.

Arkansas State vs. Washington Football Prediction and Preview

The Washington Huskies and Arkansas State Red Wolves out of the Sun Belt will meet for the first time ever on Saturday inside Husky Stadium. Washington kicked off its 2021 campaign with lofty aspirations and a top-20 national ranking. The Huskies then proceeded to suffer an embarrassing 13-7 loss to Montana in the season opener, becoming just the fifth ranked FBS team to lose to an FCS program since 2007. A Week 2 trip to the "Big House" to face Michigan offered a shot at redemption. But it wasn't meant to be, as the Washington offense once again sputtered, and the Husky defense surrendered 343 yards and four touchdowns on the ground en route to a 31-10 loss to the Wolverines. Now 0-2 for the first time since 2008, the Huskies find themselves in desperate need of a victory on Saturday. Another poor offensive performance and an 0-3 start will put second-year head coach Jimmy Lake and offensive coordinator John Donovan squarely on the hot seat.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL IN ARKANSAS: Rex Nelson’s predictions for week 3

I spoke to a group of visitors from Texas last Friday night and tried to explain why the Arkansas-Texas rivalry is so much more important to us than it is to them. I talked about all of those decades of being the only non-Texas school in the Southwest Conference and how that made us feel that we didn’t really belong.
