FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Arkansas has returned to the ranks of the nation’s top 25 teams after last Friday’s 50-48 upset of No. 1 LSU in three overtimes. The Razorbacks are ranked No. 25 in this week’s USA Today Coaches poll.
This week’s poll marks the first time Arkansas has been ranked since losing to Alabama in September. The Hogs were ranked No. 16 before losing in the final minute to the Crimson Tide on Sept. 10.
Arkansas narrowly missed a return to the Associated Press listing as well. The Hogs would be 26th if the poll was extended another spot.
Arkansas finished the regular season with an 8-4 record and will await its bowl destination. The Razorbacks have now earned a bowl bid in eight of the past 10 seasons.
