Arkansas looks to break skid at Auburn

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas' 58-10 loss to Texas A&M last week was just another setback in a season full of disappointments.

Interim coach John L. Smith must now find a way for the Razorbacks (1-4, 0-2 Southeastern Conference) to keep hope as they prepare to visit Auburn (1-3, 0-2) this week.

Arkansas' loss to the Aggies was its third worst in the school's 21-season history in the SEC. It's a category that Arkansas has become familiar with in recent weeks, given that the school's worst loss in the conference - a 52-0 drubbing at the hands of No. 1 Alabama - came just two weeks prior.

Razorbacks quarterback Tyler Wilson says the team hasn't resigned itself to a losing season and still holds out hope of a bowl game.

    After blowing a 20-point lead in the second half against LSU a week ago, the Auburn offense came out in the second half of the Arkansas game and kept the foot on the gas. The Tigers had 288 yards at the break, and added 341 yards in the second half en route to the 52-20 win.

    Think about where you were 11 years ago. Remember what the world was like? Remember how young you were? Remember your daily routine? That’s how long it’s been since Tennessee beat Alabama.
