We are already halfway through the week, Razorbacks fans. Now that Arkansas is bowl eligible, it’s about winning games to make it to a better bowl game.
Arkansas’ bowl situation will sort itself out in the next three weeks. Meanwhile, we’ve got bowl projections, a potential No. 1 defensive back recruit from Louisiana and lots of other news.
Here are two things to know:
- Arkansas is projected to land in bowl games ranging from Tampa to Charlotte to Nashville. See where it is picked to go and who its potential opponent may be.
- Top-rated New Orleans-area star Kristian Fulton, the nation’s No. 4 cornerback, looks to be leaning toward the Razorbacks. He’s got ties to the team, and it didn’t hurt that Arkansas went to Baton Rouge and beat up the LSU Tigers.
