Pregame

Right tackle Austin Deculus was dressed out for pregame warmups. Orgeron said Thursday it was trending towards Deculus not playing.

Looks like Badara Traore is taking the first-team snaps at right tackle, which means no Deculus tonight. Freshman tackle Dare Rosenthal also isn't dressed out.

Brody Miller of the Athletic reported that Dallas Cowboys owner and Arkansas booster Jerry Jones is in Death Valley to catch tonight's game.
