Around the SEC: Arkansas rides Top 10 ranking, Cinderella start into Georgia

ATHENS — Arkansas football will bring the best resume in the SEC to Georgia for its high noon battle with the Bulldogs next Saturday.

“We were joking about it, we own Texas,” Sixth-year senior linebacker Grant Morgan said after the Razorbacks completed a Texas two-step of beating Texas A&M on Saturday after dumping the Longhorns 40-21 earlier this season.

“I’m excited to be a part of the group that’s changing the history and how the momentum is going in Arkansas football, and how we’re starting a new path.”

The Razorbacks scored a 20-10 win over then-No. 7 Texas A&M at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, on Saturday, snapping what had been a nine-game losing streak in the series with the Aggies.

All this after Arkansas was picked to finish sixth in the SEC West Division at SEC Media Days the summer.

This marks the first time since 2010 the Razorbacks have opened the SEC 1-0 (beating Georgia that season), and the first time Arkansas has been ranked in the Top 10 since opening the 2012 season at No. 10.

“It really doesn’t feel like we’re 4-0, it just feels like we’re just playing our ball and having fun with it,” said 6-foot-3, 225-pound junior receiver Treylon Burks, who had 167 yards receiving including an 85-yard touchdown.

“The statistics speak for themselves.”
