Underclassmen give Bielema hope at Arkansas

AP Sports Writer

FAYETTEVILLE (AP) - Even Arkansas coach Bret Bielema can't resist looking ahead to the future while discussing a host of talented underclassmen.

When the Razorbacks (3-2, 0-1 Southeastern Conference) face No. 18 Florida (3-1, 2-0) on Saturday, they'll likely to do so with as many as six freshmen or sophomores taking part in the majority of the action on offense.

From sophomore quarterback Brandon Allen to freshman running back Alex Collins, Arkansas appears in good shape - both now and in the future.

Allen and Collins are just two of the underclassmen contributing for the Razorbacks. They've been joined by sophomore running back Jonathan Williams, freshman tight end Hunter Henry and sophomore receiver Keon Hatcher.

Also, offensive linemen Denver Kirkland and Dan Skipper made their first starts at the guard positions last week.
