Coming into the 2012 season, Arkansas football finds itself ranked No. 10 in USA Today’s preseason poll despite finishing sixth in the BCS rankings after last season and returning most of its starters.

No doubt this ranking is fueled by the loss of coach Bobby Petrino due to his off-the-field activities, yet they deserve to be slightly higher.

The low ranking by USA Today will serve the purpose of making the Razorbacks' season slightly more difficult by giving them a smaller margin of error and no time to break in new head coach John Smith. 

The poll will also make the few big games that Arkansas has throughout the season much more important, which is sure to lead to an exciting year for Razorbacks fans.

This article will break down exactly how much of an impact USA Today's preseason poll will have on Arkansas' 2012 season.
