--Arkansas' Oct. 9 game against Texas A&M in Arlington, Texas, will kick off at 2:30 p.m. to accomodate an ABC telecast.

--The Razorbacks lead the Southeastern Conference in sacks with 15 for 98 yards. Defensive end Jake Bequette is the team leader with three.

--The Arkansas-Texas A&M game will be the 67th meeting between the two old Southwest Conference rivals.

SEASON SUMMARY
The Razorbacks looked to be clicking with walk-over early-September wins over Tennessee Tech and Louisiana-Monroe. Arkansas burst onto the scene on Sept. 18 at Georgia, winning on a last-second Ryan Mallett pass. The Razorbacks surrendered a 13-point lead to No. 1 Alabama in front of a frenzied home crowd on Sept. 25.

LOOKING AHEAD
There aren't any pushovers remaining on Arkansas' schedule, ensuring that the Razorbacks can ill afford a letdown. Texas A&M on Oct. 9 in Arlington, Texas, and Auburn on Oct. 16 in Auburn, Ala., will offer a firm test as soon as Arkansas is ready to jump back into things.

QUOTE TO NOTE
"We just need to respond well after this game. It's going to be hard and it will take some time. The good thing is, we have a bye week next week. We'll be able to take a deep breath and regroup. A game like this is something that builds character and we'll be able to find out what we're made of." -- Arkansas coach Bobby Petrino, after his team's loss to Alabama.
