FAYETTEVILLE — It’s been a streaky football season for the University of Arkansas.
After starting 4-0, the Razorbacks have lost three consecutive games.
Auburn handed Arkansas (4-3, 1-3 SEC) its latest loss, 38-23, on Saturday at Reynolds Razorback Stadium.
The Razorbacks dropped out of The Associated Press poll after being ranked as high as No. 8 following their 20-10 victory over current No. 17 Texas A&M. They were ranked No. 13 after losing at Georgia 37-0 and No. 17 after a 52-51 defeat at Ole Miss.
In the latest AP poll released Sunday, Georgia is No. 1, Ole Miss No. 12 and Auburn No. 19, so it’s not as though the Razorbacks lost to lousy teams.
But Arkansas was a 4 1/2-point favorite against Auburn, the first time in 35 SEC games the Razorbacks hadn’t been an underdog.
