10 THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT HOGS-AUBURN

1. Last time out, Arkansas went on the road to take down independent BYU, 52-35, with an explosive offensive effort. It was the first time the Razorbacks had scored 50+ points on the road against a non-conference opponent since 1910 vs. Washington University in St. Louis.

2. Auburn has claimed six straight wins over the Hogs and leads the all-time series 19-11-1. The Razorbacks are seeking their first victory against the Tigers since 2015 (54-46 4OT win) and first at Jordan-Hare Stadium since 2012.

3. Arkansas has had a 100-yard rusher in a program-record eight consecutive games dating back to last season. running back Raheim Sanders is responsible for five of those eight 100-yard efforts.

4. Sanders currently leads the SEC and ranks ninth nationally in total rushing yards (870). Arkansas averages 240.0 rushing yards per game – second-most in the SEC and ninth in the country.

5. In Arkansas’ 52-35 triumph over BYU, 10 different Hogs hauled in at least one reception for the first time since 2019 against Ole Miss. Five different Razorbacks have totaled at least 10+ receptions seven games into the 2022 season: Jadon Haselwood (31), Matt Landers (25), Trey Knox (16), Sanders (15) and Ketron Jackson Jr. (11).

6. – LB Drew Sanders has emerged as one of the prominent defensive playmakers in college football, racking up 63 total tackles with a team-leading 7.5 tackles for loss and a team-high 6.5 sacks through seven games. Sanders, who leads the SEC and is tied 10th nationally in sacks, has four double-digit tackles games this season, the most among all Hog defenders.

7. – Wide receiver Jadon Haselwood has tallied at least one reception in a team-leading 19 consecutive games, dating back to the 2021 season. Haselwood leads Arkansas’ receiving corps with a team-high 31 catches for 406 yards (13.1 avg.) and a pair of touchdowns. A transfer from Oklahoma, Haselwood has caught three or more passes in each of his first seven games as a Hog.

8. Quarterback KJ Jefferson is one of four SEC quarterbacks to throw for over 1,400 yards while also running for over 300 yards this year. Jefferson is coming off a career performance in the win at BYU, tossing a career high five touchdowns, becoming the first Arkansas QB with 5+ passing touchdowns in a single game since Brandon Allen threw a school-record seven touchdowns against Mississippi State in 2015. Jefferson is the only SEC quarterback and one of eight FBS quarterbacks with 1,400+ passing yards, 14+ passing touchdowns, 300+ rushing yards and 3+ rushing scores on the year: DeQuan Finn (Toledo), Bo Nix (Oregon), Spencer Sanders (Oklahoma State), D.J.

10. – The Razorbacks have started the same five linemen — Wagner, Stromberg, Latham, Limmer and Luke Jones — in every game this season, paving the way for Sanders, the SEC’s leading rusher.
