The Tigers are the third consecutive ranked opponent for Arkansas, which rebounded from a 49-30 loss to top-ranked Alabama with a 34-30 win over Ole Miss last week.

Auburn hopes to pick up where it left off prior to a bye last week, as it has won three straight – including triumphs over SEC West rivals LSU and Mississippi State. The Razorbacks have won three of their last five meetings with Auburn, including a 54-46 four-overtime thriller last year at Arkansas.

The Razorbacks possess the SEC’s leading rusher in Rawleigh Williams III, who rolled up 180 yards and added a receiving touchdown against Ole Miss. Austin Allen also leads the conference in passing yards (1,861) and scoring passes (18), and is the only player in the nation with multiple touchdown tosses in seven games this season.

The sophomore tandem of Kerryon Johnson and Kamryn Pettway provides a solid one-two punch in the backfield, with each averaging over five yards per carry. Auburn’s improved defense has held six of its last seven opponents under 20 points dating to last season and has been especially tough on third down, holding opponents to a 31.5 percent conversion rate to rank 21st in the nation.

Arkansas WR Jared Cornelius’ last 15 offensive touches have resulted in either a first down or a touchdown.
