Texas Looks To Move Up In The AP PollThe Texas Longhorns enter this game in fantastic form after defeating the UL Lafayette Ragin' Cajuns at home by 20 points last week. In that game, Texas' offense was extremely solid as it scored 38 points while committing zero turnovers. Due to that quality performance, the Longhorns moved up six spots in the AP Poll. Now, Texas will be looking to move up even more with a road game up next. Luckily, the Longhorns won all three road games last season as they have looked comfortable in opposing stadiums.
Leading the Longhorns offensively is sophomore running back Bijan Robinson who looked great in the season opener as he had 103 rushing yards and one rushing touchdown. In addition, he had 73 receiving yards and one receiving touchdown.
Following the victory against UL Lafayette, Texas head coach Steve Sarkisian praised his team's quarterback play.
"I thought both guys played very efficiently. I thought both guys took advantage of their opportunities when they got them, made their plays."

Arkansas Looks For Another Home WinThe Arkansas Razorbacks should have mixed feelings about their 21-point home victory against the Rice Owls last week. On one hand, Arkansas won the game comfortably according to the final box score. On the other hand, Arkansas trailed by ten points in the third quarter before scoring 31 unanswered points. In that game, Arkansas's defense was fantastic as it only allowed 17 points while limiting the opposition to just 308 total yards of offense. Now, the Razorbacks will be looking for another home victory with a ranked opponent up next on Saturday.
Leading the Razorbacks offensively is sophomore quarterback KJ Jefferson who looked good last week as he recorded 128 passing yards and one passing touchdown. In addition, he had 89 rushing yards and two rushing touchdowns.
