FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) Many around the Arkansas football program expected changes in leadership amid the Razorbacks' dreadful season.
Little did they know those changes would reach all the way to the top, with athletic director Jeff Long fired Wednesday . The school's football woes were near the top of the reasons why.
The Razorbacks (4-6, 1-5 Southeastern Conference) will try to refocus and regroup from Long's shocking dismissal when they host No. 17 Mississippi State (7-3, 3-3) on Saturday. Arkansas needs to win its final two games to ensure a fourth straight bowl game.
