Arkansas Razorbacks Ranked 20th In Preseason USA Today Coaches Poll

WE'RE OFFICIALLY BACK IN

Shanna Lockwood-USA TODAY Sports

As expected, the Razorbacks will open the 2015 season as a ranked team for the first time in three years. It's been a long and torturous ride back out of that ditch, but after three dominant wins in Arkansas' last four games in 2014, the Hogs are once again expected by many to have a big season this year.

However, as per usual in this division, most of Arkansas' opponents are also in the polls so it won't be easy. Alabama is #3, Auburn #7, LSU #13, Ole Miss #15, Missouri #23, and Tennessee #25. Mississippi State and Texas A&M are the first two teams outside the top 25.

Remember, this poll will definitely look ridiculous by November and has no bearing on anything such as bowls and the Playoff, but the committee rankings don't come out for another few months so we'll stick with this and the AP poll until they do.

Here's the full poll:
