The No. 8 Razorbacks host Louisiana-Monroe Saturday evening at 6 p.m. at Little Rock's War Memorial Stadium.
Arkansas wasn't quite at its best during a 49-24 victory over Jacksonville State last week. At one point, Arkansas trailed in the game. Most didn't expect the Razorback defense to give up 24 points.
The Razorback Nation's Mike Irwin says the team will be focusing on two areas on the defense side of the ball: the cornerbacks and linebackers.
"(The linebackers) need to tackle better and need to get out on the corners and help more with the defensive ends," said Irwin.
There were plenty of bright points to build on last week. Tyler Wilson passed for 367 yards and tossed three touchdowns, and a healthy Knile Davis returned to the field.
"Knile said when he watched the film and he watched himself, he looked like his old self. I think there's going to be significant improvement from Davis from game one to game two," said the Razorback Nation's Adam Alter.
Louisiana-Monroe has a 0-25 record against ranked opponents. The last time these two teams met, Arkansas claimed a 31-7 victory.
As of Saturday morning, tickets were still available for the game at the box office. War Memorial General Manager Charlie Stagg said they were "getting close" to a sellout.
