Arkansas won their season opener in a blowout and they look to get off to a 2-0 start with a win over Toledo squad that is playing in their first game of the season.
Arkansas is the 18th ranked team in the nation and last season Toledo lost badly in facing their only ranked team falling 49-24 to Missouri.
The Rockets did win 9 games last season including beating Arkansas State in the GoDaddy Bowl.
Even though this game is technically being held at a neutral site it is being played at War Memorial Stadium in Little Rock Arkansas, so you can be sure the Razorbacks will have home field advantage.
Even though Arkansas lost 4 defensive starters from last season they held UTEP to only 204 total yards in their 48-13 win over UTEP in their season opener.
One HUGE blow for the Rockets was that Kareem Hunt, who led the Mid American Conference in rushing last season with 1,631 yards averaging 8 yards per carry, is suspended for the first 2 games of the season so he will not play in this game.
Toledo was slated to face Stony Brook last Thursday, but that game was cancelled due to weather. They were up 16-7 in the game in the 2nd quarter before it was called.
Before the Stony Brook game was cancelled RB Damion Jones-Moore, who rushed for 471 yards last season, had galloped for 70 yards on only 5 carries.
If the Rockets have any chance to pull off the upset he will have to play well eating up the clock on the ground and keeping the Arkansas offense off the field. However, they will be facing a Razorbacks’ defense that held UTEP to only 58 yards on the ground in their opening game.
Toledo has lost 7 of their last 8 non-conference games against a top 25 opponent.
The Razorbacks racked up 490 total yards in their win over UTEP with QB Brandon Allen passing for a career high 308 yards.
The Razorbacks lost RB Jonathan Williams, for the season with a foot injury and he rushed for over 1,000 yards last season. Still, Alex Collins, who also rushed for over 1,000 yards last season, tore it up facing UTEP rushing for 127 yards on only 12 carries.
Toledo really has their hands full in this game, especially without their big gun in RB Kareem Hunt.
