The No. 10 ranking allows the Razorbacks to have a better control of their destiny.
The voting system is obviously flawed. To keep politics out of the system, the Razorbacks must win.
The Razorbacks don’t play the Crimson Tide until September, but they are already eyeing that matchup. If the Razorbacks take down the Tide, they will be beating a top-ranked team in the country.
The schedule will also allow the Hogs to take on LSU and South Carolina, two teams above Arkansas in the current polls.
Some believe the Hogs are ready to win the SEC this year, and this schedule will allow them to remove any doubt by season's end.
