The Hogs will take on Louisiana, Monroe Saturday night in Little Rock at War Memorial Stadium.
In Thursday's Razorback Nation report, Mike Irwin says Arkansas' ground attack may have to take a back seat because of the Warhawks defense.
John L. Smith says Arkansas' running game was ok in the season opener.
Improving in game two is about better effort in practice.
The addition of tackle Jason Peacock should help.
"We're trying to get him down in some weight," said Arkansas coach John L. Smith. "We're get him added to the mix a little bit."
After rushing for just 70 yards in game one, Knile Davis would make Hogs fans happy with a breakout game against Louisiana Monroe.
But that could depend on the Warhawks blitz happy defense.
"If they blitz us on every play this week we may just throw it on every down," said Arkansas offensive coordinator Paul Petrino. "We'll see what happens. If they stick ten guys on the ball we're going to throw it."
"They bring 'em from all over the field," said Arkansas quarterback Tyler Wilson. "And there's some unsoundness to it at times. I think there are some things we can do offensively to attack that."
So the Knile Davis Heisman watch may not start for real until the Alabama game.
You better believe this team will need a running game against those guys.
