Ryan Mallett has put up the gaudiest passing totals in the
country while leading Arkansas into the top 10. Greg McElroy's most
impressive numbers are in the win column.
On Saturday, the two quarterbacks will share the spotlight when
10th-ranked Arkansas hosts No. 1 Alabama (3-0).
Mallett guides the Razorbacks (3-0) by directing lasers at his
receivers in an offense that centers on him. He's averaging 360.3
passing yards per game, a total that McElroy has never approached
while going 17-0 as the starting quarterback for the defending
McElroy has been able to use his arm sparingly with the luxury
of two dynamic running backs, including 2009 Heisman Trophy winner
Mark Ingram. But this year, he's the nation's leader in passing
efficiency and has three straight 200-yard passing games for the
first time in his career.
