• No. 10 Arkansas hosts opponent FCS Missouri State, coached by former Razorbacks coach Bobby Petrino (2008-11), under the lights on Saturday, September 17, inside Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium. Kickoff between the Hogs and Bears is scheduled for 6 pm on ESPN+ and SEC Network+.
• For the first time in more than a decade, the Hogs will dress like a top 10 team in Fayetteville. Arkansas last played a game inside Razorback Stadium as a top 10 program in the 2012 season opener against FCS foe Jacksonville State.
• Under coach Sam Pittman, the Razorbacks are a perfect 6-0 against non-conference opponents. With a win against Missouri State, Pittman would become the first Arkansas head coach since Lou Holtz (1977-78) to win his first seven games against non-conference foes.
• Quarterback KJ Jefferson continues to demonstrate why he is one of the most dynamic quarterbacks in college football. Jefferson completed 36 of 47 passes (76.6%) for 385 yards and four touchdowns while rushing for 129 yards and two touchdowns in the first two games of the season. He ranks third in the SEC and ninth nationally in completion percentage and boasts the third-best passing efficiency in the league (173.5).
• Running back Raheim “Rocket” Sanders is the Razorbacks’ leading ball carrier through two games, totaling 273 rushing yards on 44 carries (6.2 avg) with a pair of touchdowns. Sanders, who recorded his second straight 100-yard rushing effort in the win over South Carolina, leads the SEC and ranks sixth nationally in rushing yards this season. He ranks fourth in the nation in rushing yards per game (136.5).
• Wide receiver Jadon Haselwood leads Arkansas’ receiving corps through the first two games of the season with eight catches for 72 yards (9.0 average) and one touchdown. Haselwood, a transfer from Oklahoma, caught a team-leading five passes for 30 yards against South Carolina in Saturday’s victory to help the Razorbacks start 1-0 in the SEC in consecutive seasons for the first time since 2003-04.
• Linebacker Bumper Pool leads the Hogs in tackles this season with 20 total stops, including 2.0 tackles for loss and a sack. Pool, who was Arkansas’ leading tackler in 2021, posted two straight seasons with 100-plus total tackles and boasts the second-most stops (340) among all FBS defenders since 2019. He amassed 369 tackles in 46 games of career, which is good for sixth most of all time in Arkansas.
