Welcome to SB Nation Reacts, a survey of fans across the NCAA. Each week, we send out questions to the most plugged in Arkansas Razorbacks fans, and fans across the country. Sign up here to join Reacts. NOTE: This poll was conducted prior to this Saturday’s games.

Despite their narrow loss to Auburn, confidence in Arkansas is through the roof.

Even with two losses on the season already, fans remain optimistic about the Razorbacks. This week, a full 100 percent of fans said they believe the team is headed in the right direction.

That isn’t a surprise as they continue to improve every week. Even coming within 2 points from upsetting a second top-25 opponent on the road in two consecutive weeks. The Hogs move on to face a offensively dangerous Ole Miss team that can’t stop anyone on defense. If Arkansas wins this week it will give Hog fans even more reason to grow in confidence that this staff has turned this ship around!

Nationally, it appears college football fans expect a very similar end to the season as most of the last five years.

When asked in the Reacts survey to pick between Clemson and Alabama or the rest of the field for who would win the National Championship, nearly two-thirds of fans across the country are siding with the two most consistently dominant teams over the last five years.

Similarly, the Tigers and Crimson Tide populate many of the top spots in the Heisman race. Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence ran away with the top spot, earning 43 percent of the vote. His teammate Travis Etienne tallied the next most votes with 17 percent, the only two players in double digits.

Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields, Alabama running back Najee Harris and Oklahoma State running back Chuba Hubbard round out the top five.

Despite the runaway vote, Lawrence’s dominance over the field has actually diminished. When asked the same question before the start of the season, the Tigers QB was at 70 percent.
