This is an important game for a pair of fifth-year head coaches.

For No. 21 Auburn's Gus Malzahn, a loss to Arkansas one week after an upset loss at LSU would ratchet up the heat from a program and fan base not known for patience. Malzahn's predecessor and former boss, Gene Chizik, was fired in 2012, two years after winning a national championship.

For Arkansas' Bret Bielema, a home win over a ranked opponent is needed to cool his own hot-seat talk. The Razorbacks are the only SEC West team without a conference win this year.
