Arkansas redshirt senior QB Brandon Allen completed 11-of-17 passes for 102 yards and an interception in Friday's 28-3 win over Missouri.
Allen threw seven touchdowns against Mississippi State last weekend. Stands to reason that he would throw for zero in his next game. To be fair, Friday's affair was played in a constant rain. This was just the second time during the 2015 campaign that Allen's failed to throw a touchdown. Friday's results might not have been pretty for the 6-foot-3, 212-pound redshirt senior, but he's been phenomenal for the vast majority of the season, having thrown for 3,125 yards with a 29/7 TD/INT ratio.

After Arkansas redshirt senior QB Brandon Allen's "productive senior year, he will receive draftable grades from some teams," CBS Sports' Dane Brugler notes.

"Over the summer, scouts viewed Allen as a camp arm and longshot to be drafted, but with his productive senior year, he will receive draftable grades from some teams as he's shown the necessary skills to develop into a backup at the next level," Pauline wrote. Recently, the Arkansas prospect had a solid outing in the Razorback's 51-50 loss to Mississippi State last Saturday. Allen completed 30-of-43 passes for 407 yards and seven touchdowns on the day, giving his draft stock a boost.

Arkansas redshirt senior QB Brandon Allen completed 30-of-43 passes for 407 yards and seven touchdowns in Saturday's 51-50 loss to Mississippi State.

Allen lit up the Bulldogs in the losing effort. He threw three touchdown passes in the first half, then somehow exceeded that mark by one after halftime. The 6-foot-3, 212-pound redshirt senior's been nothing short of a revelation during the 2015 campaign, completing 65.1% of his passes for 3,023 yards and a 29/6 TD/INT ratio. More fun on the micro level: Allen's thrown at least six touchdown passes in two of his last three games. He had thrown just eight total scoring passes in his first five contests before turning into a human fireball in the second half of the season.

In 15 of Arkansas' last 20 offensive drives in regulation, redshirt senior QB Brandon Allen has led the team to a score.

Allen's been hotter than the surface of the sun of late. Arkansas has posted 50-plus points in each of their last three games, something that hasn't been done at the university since 1916. In Saturday's 53-52 OT win over Ole Miss, he threw a school-record six touchdown passes. This weekend, he'll have the joy of facing an LSU passing defense that's ranked ninth in the SEC in terms of yards allowed through the air (217.4 allowed on average). The 6-foot-3, 212-pound redshirt senior's turned himself into a trustworthy DFS option due to his recent play.

Arkansas redshirt senior QB Brandon Allen completed 33-of-45 passes for 443 yards and six touchdowns in Saturday's stunning 53-52 OT victory over Ole Miss.

Don't look now, but the 6-foot-3, 212-pound redshirt senior has a 14/2 TD/INT ratio over five games since the calendar turned to October. Arkansas isn't one-dimensional anymore, folks. Expect Allen to re-enter the columns of draft analysts this coming week after they swore him off in September.
Nov 7 - 8:46 PM

Arkansas redshirt senior QB Brandon Allen completed 14-of-19 passes for 265 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 63-28 win over Tennessee Martin

Allen's quietly posted a nice season to this point, with much of his production coming over his last three contests. The 6-foot-3, 212-pound redshirt senior holds a 7/2 TD/INT ratio in that short space. Overall, he's thrown for 2,034 yards with a 15/5 TD/INT mark across eight games. He'll get a crack at Ole Miss next Saturday.
Nov 1 - 7:33 PM

Arkansas redshirt senior QB Brandon Allen completed 19 of 31 attempts for 233 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in the school's 54-46 four overtime victory over Auburn.

Allen really turned it up in overtime, converting multiple touchdowns with a few on third or fourth down. Allen has really risen to the occasion this season and is easily playing his best football. After facing UTM, Arkansas squares off against Ole Miss and LSU.

After the Razorbacks' 16-12 loss to Toledo, Arkansas redshirt senior QB Brandon Allen is "sliding down draft boards," according to TFY Draft Insider Tony Pauline.

"During the loss to Toledo, Allen just didn’t seem in control of the situation and failed to hit on several key passes late in the game when targets were available. He missed open receivers and on the final snap didn’t even put a desperation pass in play, as the clock wound down," Pauline wrote. The Arkansas prospect completed 32 of 52 passes, for a career best 412 yards, and 1 interception.

ESPN's Chris Low expects Arkansas to use more play action passing this season.

Low points to first year OC Dan Enos and the series of plays "targeting junior TE Hunter Henry, who led the SEC in first-down catches at the position (26)." Many believe one key to play action passing is running the football successfully. That will be the focus for the Razorbacks this year with Alex Collins and Johnathan Williams. Enos previously spent a handful of seasons as Central Michigan's head coach.

Arkansas redshirt junior QB Brandon Allen's truck was set on fire early Monday morning.

Allen placed a 4 a.m. phone call to his coach to explain he was watching his vehicle burn. "Your breath kind of stops for a moment when I saw it was (Allen) calling me," Razorbacks' coach Bret Bielema said at his press conference on Monday. "He just kind of explained to me that he was calling to let me know that his car was on fire and he was watching it across the street and the fire department was there and his dad was on the way. That, unfortunately something had put his car on fire, that he didn't really know at the time what had taken place." Three to four vehicle were set on fire in the Fayetteville area on Sunday night. Thankfully, Allen wasn't injured. He threw for 1,552 yards and 13 touchdowns last season, and returns as starter.

Arkansas redshirt sophomore QB Brandon Allen will return to the field and start Saturday's game against Texas A&M.

Allen had been dealing with a shoulder injury, but Bielema refused to comment on how serious it was. He missed last weekend's loss to Rutgers. If the Razorbacks defense can get a few stops, thanks to edge rushers Chris Smith and Trey Flowers, Arkansas' ground game could sustain success against a poor Texas A&M defense.

Arkansas head coach Bret Bielema disclosed no details on redshirt sophomore QB Brandon Allen's shoulder injury.

Beat writer Adam Alter cites sources saying Allen will not play this week against Rutgers and likely next week's contest against Texas A&M. "You know, it wasn't anything structurally broke or anything like that," Bielema said. "So, it’s really just a matter of how fast his body can heal. I know it’s a throwing arm issue." Junior walk-on A.J. Darby will likely start in his place.

Arkansas redshirt sophomore starting QB Brandon Allen has been sidelined with a shoulder injury.

Allen injured his shoulder on a touchdown run. He is not expected to return and is currently without his shoulder pads on the sideline. Junior walk-on A.J. Darby replaced Allen. The Razorbacks are leading Southern Miss 10-3 at halftime.

New Arkansas head coach Bret Bielema wants the Razorbacks' offense to be "balanced."

"We want to have balance running and throwing the football," Bielema told Go Vols Xtra. "We don’t have the same type of people right now, especially up front (as Wisconsin did). There hasn't been a really huge emphasis on being big and strong up front. We’ll gradually grow that position." The head coach relied heavily on a power running offense at Wisconsin, but that might need to be altered in the SEC.

Arkansas coaches have pegged redshirt sophomore Brandon Allen as the team's starting QB.

"After Saturday's spring game, coach Bret Bielema made it sound pretty clear that he's comfortable with the idea of having Allen be his starter," ESPN's Edward Aschoff writes. "He's the better pure passer and was more consistent this spring." He's battling Brandon Mitchell for the top job, but the latter has experience as a receiver and can get on the field in that role.
