The Arkansas Razorbacks lost their third game of the season in week six, to Texas A&M. However, there are a few winners and losers from the game.
The Razorbacks are now 2-3 in the season as they took their third loss to the Texas A&M Aggies. The final score was 42-31, but in reality the game was not that close.
Despite how bad the Razorbacks looked this past Saturday, there are a few bright spots on this team to look forward to. Besides the best bright spot being the amazing Sam Pittman and the job he has done this season. Sam has gotten the players to buy in, and compete every game.
Treylon Burks already looks like one of the best receivers in the SEC in just his second season. Burks just continues to amaze with crazy catch after crazy catch. I do not need to spend too much time talking about how great he was because we already now. Burks has not had a bad game this season, when you factor in the games he has played.
Burks finished the game with seven catches for 117 yards and two touchdowns. But he improved in some areas that many people may not have noticed.
Arkansas ran a screen play in the red zone for Tyson Morris. On that play, Treylon Burks blocked better than i have ever seen him do.
Burks is improving every game, and it will only get better. It is a shame that he could possibly leave for the NFL draft after next year.
Rakeem Boyd had his best game of the season so far. After getting only five touches the first series of the game, he would not return for three more series until 1:09 left in the first half. Coach Pitman said that Boyd was not hurt during that time, they were just using Trelon Smith more in different offensive packages.
When Rakeem came back into the game, he was much more involved. Hog fans seen the Rakeem Boyd we have been waiting for all season.
Boyd finished with a signature 100 yard rushing game and one rushing touchdown on just 18 carries. Its safe to say that the bye week may have helped Rakeem Boyd regain full health.
There is still good to look for in the season.
