The Arkansas Razorbacks began the season as national championship contenders. However, after two brutal performances to begin the season, the team is now out of the AP Poll and fighting for its life in the SEC.
What makes matters worse is that Arkansas must now take on the Alabama Crimson Tide in Week 3, in a game that will likely either make or break the team's season the rest of the way.
The defense has been terrible, the offense isn't as effective as everyone thought it would be and they have struggled against teams that would normally be considered cupcakes on an SEC schedule.
While the odds are certainly stacked against Arkansas, here are five players that must step up in order for the Razorbacks to stand a chance against Nick Saban and company.
