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. May 26 - 11:08 AM

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.

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.
