It’s no secret the Razorback offense is struggling this season, and they have yet to put together two quality halves of football.

The Razorbacks rank ninth in the SEC in average yards per game (381.4), including 178.6 rushing yards per game (seventh) and 202.8 passing (eighth).

While they are eighth in scoring offense, 27.9 points per game, that average doesn’t tell the whole story. In four games against ranked opponents, two at home and two on the road, Arkansas is averaging just 11.5 points per game.

They fell at home to TCU 28-7 in the second game of the season, at Alabama 41-9, at home to Auburn 52-20 and at LSU last weekend 33-10. In each of those games, the Hogs fell apart in the second half and were outscored 14-0 against TCU, 17-9 at Alabama, 35-14 against Auburn and 26-3 against LSU. That’s an average score of 23-7 in the second half.
