The Arkansas Razorbacks have been the rear end of jokes for the past few seasons. Picked last in the SEC by most at the start of this year, some might want to change that prediction heading into Week 4. Known for their ground game, the Razorbacks showed exactly what SEC running backs can do to a defense, rushing for 438 yards on 68 carries Saturday. Arkansas had more carries than passing yards (61) in its 49-28 win over Texas Tech on Saturday.
