FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Auburn hopes to continue its season of reemergence and earn first-year coach Gus Malzahn a win in his return to his native state of Arkansas this weekend.

The No. 8 Tigers (7-1, 3-1 Southeastern Conference), who were 3-9 last season, have won four games in a row since suffering their only loss of the season - a 35-21 setback at LSU on Sept. 21.

While Auburn has experienced immediate success under its first-year coach, formerly an offensive coordinator for one season with the Razorbacks, Arkansas has struggled in its first year under coach Bret Bielema.

The Razorbacks (3-5, 0-4) have lost five straight, the longest skid of Bielema's head coaching career, and they have lost their last two games - to South Carolina and Alabama by a combined 104-7.
