All the talk surrounding the Razorbacks on Homecoming Weekend

Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

Ever wonder what it's like to come to a Fayetteville game as a visiting fan? One of the writers at College and Magnolia did such a thing and wrote about it. I don't know where he's getting the Carl's Jr. thing as we only have Hardee's here in Washington County, but he is right that our stadium is a Pepsi stadium and that our McDonald's only do McMuffins all day instead of biscuits, which is pretty Yankee-esque and probably bad for recruiting.

When it comes to Arkansas football this season sacks are certainly a rarity. While the offensive line has done its job the defensive line has struggled. The Hogs rank 8th nationally in sacks allowed (Yay!) but are a dismal 119th in the country in getting sacks (Boo!). No Arkansas players have 2 sacks this year, Mitchell Loewen and Tevin Beanum lead the team with 1.5 each and the team only has seven all season. With Tennessee-Martin being the weakest team on the Razorbacks' schedule, the focus is on correcting the weak spots and getting sacks will be a top priority.

Cody Hollister has had a journey of a college career to Arkansas, but Razorback fans might not know about his twin brother Jacob, who plays for Wyoming. The two combined to light up defenses in high school with Cody at Wide Receiverand Jacob as the quarterback. But when college rolled around, Ryan Holmgren talks about the decisions the two had to make, and separating from each other for the first time in their lives. Once Cody got an offer at Arkansas it proved too nice to pass up, and the two are now making it on their own.

With the game against Tennessee-Martin this week, there is not a lot of content breaking down the game. Right now fans are using homecoming week to either look back on the dramatic win over Auburn or ahead to the 2016 season. Fans looking ahead can check out rivals.com and their video feature on McTelvin Agim. He could be Bret Bielema's biggest recruit and you can check out some highlights from the 4-star.

If the matchup with the Skyhawks isn't enough to tide you over this weekend, I don't blame you. So NCAA.com has a handy dandy little what to watch for preview this weekend in SEC football. It's a weak slate of games that's highlighted by Florida vs. Georgia in Jacksonville. Ole Miss against Auburn is another game that is worth tuning into, and a dark horse candidate for upset of the week could be Vandy beating an undefeated Houston Cougars squad.
