Bret Bielema already has a lot on his hands, but the load just got a whole lot heavier.
He must prepare Arkansas for the Belk Bowl against Virginia Tech and hit the recruiting trail as National Signing Day (Feb. 1) quickly approaches. Another area of focus was added to the equation on Friday when his wife, Jen, announced that the married couple is expecting their first child.
Apparently, Bielema is already dealing with the effects of a pregnant wife and made light of the situation on Saturday.

Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze followed up with some cautionary advice for Bielema:
@BretBielema Oh. You have no idea. Just the beginning. Congrats to you guys

A pregnant wife if no small task, and Virginia Tech will not be either. The Hokies finished the 2016 season with a 9-4 (6-2 ACC) record, falling to Clemson by a touchdown in the conference title game. Virginia Tech finished No. 22 in the final College Football Playoff rankings.
The Razorbacks will face off against the Hokies on Dec. 29 from Charlotte’s Bank of America Stadium at 5:30 p.m. ET.
