After a month on the road, No. 17 Arkansas (4-2, 1-2 SEC) is back inside Razorback Stadium on Saturday for their homecoming game against Auburn (4-2, 1-1 SEC). The Hogs are coming looking to bounce back after dropping two tough games against No. 1 Georgia and No. 13 Ole Miss.

Meanwhile, the Tigers’ only two loses also come from top-ten opponents, Auburn fell to Georgia last Saturday 34-10 and they lost to No. 7 Penn State in mid-September.

The Razorbacks will look to buckle down on defense after allowing 52 points to Ole Miss without star safety Jalen Catalon, who is inactive today with an injury.
