Arkansas gets a bit of a reprieve this week, but can't afford to overlook New Mexico State. The Aggies rallied from down 24 to scare Arizona State, but lost 37-31 in the season opener in Tempe. New Mexico State has lost to Troy and defeated New Mexico and UTEP in the three weeks since. This game will give the Razorbacks their final chance to work out some problems before a grueling October that includes four SEC games, including three on the road.
