ARLINGTON, Texas — Arkansas’ 45-24 loss to Texas A&M sent the Razorbacks tumbling in the SEC Country Power Poll.
Arkansas (3-1, 0-1 in SEC) is now No. 6, down from No. 3 last week. Texas A&M (4-0, 1-0) remained at No. 2 behind Alabama.
The poll consists of 22 media members from SEC Country and around the nation.
The Aggies dominated in the second half Saturday, outscoring the Hogs 28-7 over the final two quarters. They were particularly effected running the ball, rushing for 366 yards and averaging 9.9 yards per carry.
Arkansas’ poor play on the offensive line also played a significant role in the result. The Aggies’ defensive dominated the line of scrimmage with 10 tackles for loss and several big hits on Hogs quarterback Austin Allen.
Texas A&M has now won five straight in the annual Southwest Classic game with Arkansas.
Arkansas is No. 20 in the AP Poll and No. 22 in coaches’ poll. The Hogs will now shift their focus to what should be an easy win this Saturday against FCS opponent Alcorn State at War Memorial Stadium in Little Rock, Ark.
The schedule will get considerably more difficult following the Alcorn State game. Beginning with No. 1 Alabama on Oct. 8, Arkansas will face four current top 25 teams in a span of five weeks.
Check back next Sunday to see where Arkansas stands in the Week 5 SEC Country Power Poll.
