NCAA Football: Alcorn State at Arkansas Nelson Chenault-USA TODAY Sports

Florida A&M at Arkansas

When: 7 p.m., August 31st

Where: War Memorial Stadium, Little Rock

Line: N/A

How to Watch: SEC Network

Game Details: Arkansas is opening the season in Little Rock for the first time since 2009, when it defeated Missouri State 48-10 in Ryan Mallett's first game as a Razorback. The team is looking to win its second a row in the capital city, after easily disposing of Alcorn State a year ago.

What to watch for: The Razorbacks transitioned to a 3-4 defensive scheme in the offseason, so that will be something to keep an eye on. The RB situation is new as well, with Rawleigh Williams retiring from football in the spring. Rain is in the forecast, so ball security will need to be at a premium.

Key matchup: Florida A&M QB Ryan Stanley vs. the new-look secondary. The Razorbacks struggled last year at stopping dual-threat signal callers, and Stanley is more than capable of picking up yards on the ground.

AF's take: Arkansas 38, Florida A&M 14.
