Arkansas counting on improvement from RB Collins

FAYETTEVILLE, AR (AP) - Alex Collins has had his share of memorable moments at Arkansas, including 1,000-yard rushing seasons in each of his first two years for the Razorbacks.
    
None, however, were more memorable than the career day the junior had last season against Texas Tech - a 212-yard feat the desperate Razorbacks need a repeat of in the worst way when they host the Red Raiders (2-0) on Saturday.
    
Arkansas (1-1) had just 103 yards rushing on 31 attempts in a stunning loss to Toledo a week ago, with Collins finishing with only 54 yards on 20 carries.
    
The Razorbacks combined for 438 yards rushing in a 49-28 win over Texas Tech last season, and they are counting on improvement from Collins this week.
