The Razorbacks failed to record a win in SEC play last season. However, Arkansas returns a total of 13 starters in hopes that added experience will bring a win or two.

Offensively, Arkansas returns seven starters who accounted for 95 percent of its total offense.

The running back duo of Alex Collins and Jonathan Williams are a major part of that after the two combined for 1,926 yards last season.

The Razorback offensive line, which broke the single-season school record with eight sacks allowed and ranked third in the NCAA with an average of .67 per game, returns three starters.

Junior Brandon Allen enters his second season as starting quarterback after a sub-standard performance of 1,552 yards and 13 touchdowns a year ago.

Defensively, Trey Flowers returns to lead the Razorback defensive line after ranking second in the SEC last season with an average of 1.23 tackles for loss per game with three forced fumbles.

While Arkansas has to replace three starters up front, it returns all four starters from last year in the secondary.

Safety Alan Turner leads the way after finishing last season with 97 tackles.
