After kicking off the season with a pair of wins over two seemingly overmatched teams in Western Carolina and Kent State, Arkansas will face its first Power 5 opponent today, welcoming Big 12 newcomer BYU to Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium at 6:30 p.m. on ESPN2.
It is the return game after Arkansas made the trip to Provo, Utah, last season, winning 52-35.
Arkansas is looking to go 3-0 for the third consecutive season under Sam Pittman. It would mark the first time since 1979, under legendary coach Lou Holtz, that the Razorbacks have accomplished that feat.
BYU has begun the year with wins over Sam Houston State and Southern Utah, under eighth-year Head Coach Kalani Sitake. The Cougars will feature veteran senior quarterback Kedon Slovis, who was the previous starter at USC and Pittsburgh.
Arkansas Head Coach Sam Pittman is in his fourth season with an overall record of 21-17. He is 11-1 in non-conference games, with his lone loss coming against No. 23 Liberty last season.
