A more friendly schedule
Playing an SEC schedule is never easy, but the Hogs have better prospects for 2010. Florida has been replaced by Vanderbilt, and Alabama and LSU have to travel to the Natural State. The Hogs also get Ole Miss and Vanderbilt at home, but the possibility of improving on last year’s 85 record will be settled on the road. If Arkansas can win at Georgia, Auburn and South Carolina, then a divisional title is likely.
Quarterback Ryan Mallett will have the benefit of an experienced receiving corps this fall.
