FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Arkansas made its first-ever appearance in the College Football Playoff top-25 Tuesday night.
Where Arkansas is ranked
The Razorbacks come in at No. 25 in the committee’s latest rankings.
What it means for Arkansas football
The Razorbacks spent six consecutive weeks ranked in the AP and coaches polls until tumbling out of both rankings after an embarrassing 56-3 loss Oct. 22 at Auburn. The Hogs (6-3 overall, 2-3 SEC) rebounded, though, following a bye week, beating Florida 31-10 at home last Saturday.
Even after the Florida win, Arkansas remained unranked in the latest AP and coaches polls. Among teams that didn’t make the top-25, though, the Hogs were second and third, respectively, in those rankings.
Arkansas hosts LSU — which came in at No. 24 in Tuesday’s rankings — at 7 p.m. ET Saturday inside Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium. It will be the Hogs’ fifth consecutive game against a ranked opponent, and their seventh such game overall this season.
The Razorbacks have beaten LSU by 17-point margins in each of the last two seasons.
