Arkansas RB trio evokes memories of school's best

By KURT VOIGTAP Sports Writer

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas has many questions to answer following last season's 3-9 disaster.

The running back position - led by the returning dynamic trio of Jonathan Williams, Alex Collins and Korliss Marshall - isn't one of them.

The Razorbacks were third in the Southeastern Conference in rushing last season with an average of 208.7 yards per game on the ground.

Williams, Collins and Marshall combined for 2,072 yard rushing in their first season together, with Collins leading the way with 1,026 yards and Williams gaining 900. They have even higher expectations this year as they try to help Arkansas return to a bowl game for the first time since 2011.

The Razorbacks open their season at Auburn on Aug. 30.
