Arkansas QB Mallett needs better SEC road record

By  | 

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Ryan Mallett didn't look like a
Heisman Trophy contender on the road in the Southeastern Conference
last season.

The Arkansas quarterback will get his first chance to impress
Heisman voters on a national stage when the No. 12 Razorbacks
travel to Georgia on Saturday. The game is the SEC opener for
Arkansas (2-0), while the Bulldogs (1-1) are coming off a
conference loss to South Carolina.

Through the first two games, Mallett has completed 73.1 percent
of his passes and thrown for six touchdowns and 701 yards,
including a 400-yard performance against Louisiana-Monroe last

The former Michigan transfer threw for 3,624 yards and 30
touchdowns in his first season under Arkansas coach Bobby Petrino a
year ago. But all four SEC games on the road ended in losses.
