Ragnow has been Arkansas’ most consistent offensive lineman this season and has played both center and right guard. However, it has been an emotional roller coaster for him this season, as his father, Jon, died last month after a heart attack — just a few hours after Arkansas defeated Alcorn State 52-10 on Oct. 1. Ragnow flew home to Victoria, Minn. to be with his family afterwards, and missed the Razorbacks game against Alabama as a result.
Ragnow and Arkansas (6-3) will host LSU on Saturday night.
