Hogs drop to No. 20 after loss to A&M
FAYETTEVILLE - Obviously respecting the unbeaten Texas A&M Aggies, voters in the Associated Press and Amway Coaches did not drop the Razorbacks out of their Top 25 Sunday despite Arkansas losing its SEC opener, 45-24 Saturday to A&M.
Ranked 17th and 18th in last week’s AP and Coaches polls, the Razorbacks (3-1 overall, 0-1 in the SEC West) dropped to 20th in Sunday’s AP poll and 22nd in the Coaches poll.
Texas A&M, ranked 10th and 13th in last week’s AP and Coaches polls, advanced to ninth Sunday in the AP and 10th in the Coaches poll.
In its lone Little Rock appearance for 2016, Arkansas plays the Alcorn State Braves (1-2) in Saturday’s 11 a.m. non-conference game at War Memorial Stadium televised by the SEC Network Alternate channel.
The following Oct. 8, 15 and 22 SEC Saturdays the Razorbacks will play host to current No. 1 Alabama and No. 16 Ole Miss at Reynolds Razorback Stadium and then visit Auburn before an Oct. 29 open date.
