FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) -- Led by the emergence of sophomore Drew Morgan and a restocked talent pool of playmakers, Arkansas hopes to emerge from the bottom of the Southeastern Conference's passing attacks when it opens the season at No. 6 Auburn.
The Razorbacks were last in the SEC in passing last season, averaging a paltry 148.5 yards per game through the air.
Part of the cause was a shoulder injury to Brandon Allen that limited the quarterback to one practice per week and required him to take numbing shots before each game in order to play.
Drops also plagued Arkansas' wide receivers, though Morgan is one of several players coach Bret Bielema has seen improvement from this preseason.
