AUBURN, Ala. — It's been a while since we've done a "7 at 7." Those with good memories will recall that when this was done on Thursdays during the football season last year, every link focused on Auburn's coming opponent.
And we return to that today, as we take a look at Arkansas.
Let's get to it.
1. In perhaps the biggest story to come out of Fayetteville, Ark., this week, Brandon Allen, the team's starting quarterback, had his truck set on fire Monday. It is being investigated as a potential arson.
2. Speaking of Allen, the Arkansas News Bureau's Robbie Neiswanger wrote a lengthy feature on the junior signal-caller Sunday. This piece comes with the highest recommendation.
3. Arkansas released its two-deep (and in some cases, three-deep) depth chart Monday. Check out the depth chart (along with some analysis) here.
4. Keon Hatcher returns as the Razorbacks' top receiver after catching 27 passes for 346 yards and two touchdowns last season. Even so, he and the coaching staff still believe he has plenty of room to grow.
5. Defensive end Deatrich Wise Jr. has returned to health. And he had some interesting things to say about chasing down Auburn quarterback Nick Marshall.
6. How much will Marshall play? How many snaps will backup quarterback Jeremy Johnson receive? As Greg Ostendorf of ESPN.com writes, Arkansas isn't sweating it.
7. We end with another interesting piece from Neiswanger. Saturday marks the first time in receiver Cody Hollister's career that he'll play in a game without his twin brother, Jared. While Cody is a Razorback, Jared is a tight end for the Wyoming Cowboys.
