Hogs break into AP Top 10

Arkansas is back in the Associated Press Top 10 for the first time since 2012.

The Razorbacks jumped into the polls after a win over No. 15 Texas and have risen each of the last two weeks. While the AP poll has the Hogs inside the Top 10, the USA Today Coaches’ poll has Arkansas just outside it at No. 11. The Hogs’ ranking in the AP poll is the team’s highest since opening the 2012 season at No. 10 and rising to No. 8 after a season-opening victory over Jacksonville State.

Arkansas is 4-0 and ranked in the Top 10 for the first time since 2003 when Head Coach Houston Nutt led the Razorbacks to a victory at No. 5 Texas and a double overtime win at Alabama pushed the Hogs to 4-0 and No. 7 in the AP poll. Arkansas is also 1-0 in the SEC for the first time since 2010 when the team opened with a win at Georgia.

Head Coach Sam Pittman will take the Razorbacks to Georgia to take on the No. 2-ranked Bulldogs on Saturday for a Top 10 match-up on ESPN. College GameDay will be on site with Chris Fowler, Kirk Herbstreit and Holly Rowe calling the game at 11 a.m. CT.
