Athlon Sports Ranks Razorbacks No. 16 in Preseason Poll

AthlonSports.com is in the process of revealing its preseason college football Top 25, and the magazine has ranked the Hogs at No. 16. So far, Athlon has revealed Nos. 25 through 14. As for other SEC teams, South Carolina is No. 21, Florida No. 18 and Georgia No. 14.

Here's part of what Athlon had to say about the 2011 Razorbacks:

Arkansas must find a way to reach its potential in the running game early in 2011 to take pressure off Wilson and the passing attack. The good news is that even if the offense struggles a bit early, the Razorbacks’ defense should be good enough to win some games.

Alabama and LSU are the favorites in the SEC West, but if things break right for the Hogs, a division title isn’t out of the question.
