Full Game Log: Arkansas 45, Arkansas-Pine Bluff 3

The Razorbacks looked to better their miserable October against an in-state foe for the first time since 1944 on Saturday
Author:

October had not been good to the Arkansas football program. After the Razorbacks started the season 4-0 and earned a top-10 ranking, Arkansas has dropped three straight. Such is life in the SEC when each week on the schedule could be a ranked in-conference opponent.

Week 8 is not a "bye" week, per se, but with Arkansas-Pine Bluff coming to Little Rock, there is certainly an opportunity for the Razorbacks to get things back on track.

Arkansas-Pine Bluff is struggling right now, having lost five straight after beating the Lane College Dragons (who?) to start the season. 

It's the first time Arkansas has played an in-state opponent since 1944, and the Golden Lions really don't stand a chance here, but of course, especially in 2021, we've seen crazy things happen on the football field.
