The first month of the college football season passed. Now begins the month of October, when teams get fully into the conference slate, and the stakes are raised even higher.
The Arkansas Razorbacks enter October with a 3-2 (0-1 SEC) record and began its brutal four-game stretch with a loss, 45-33, to Johnny Manziel and Texas A&M. Saturday, the Hogs travel to Gainesville for the team's first conference road game of the season against the Florida Gators.
Head coach Will Muschamp and his Gators won, 24-7, at Kentucky last weekend but continued to struggle on offense. Losing starting quarterback Jeff Driskel for the rest of the year with a broken leg versus Tennessee didn't help the cause either.
Arkansas head coach Bret Bielema and the Razorbacks match up very well against the Florida. A win on the road, and the Hogs put themselves in good position for a return to the postseason. However, a loss would be a huge blow to bowl aspirations.
Here's the inside scoop on what Arkansas must do to snap its two-game losing skid and gain some much needed momentum with South Carolina and Alabama looming on the schedule.
