FAYETTEVILLE (AP) - Bret Bielema is counting on Arkansas' struggles in overcoming Samford last week to help the team moving forward.
The Razorbacks (2-0) trailed in the fourth quarter against the Football Championship Subdivision Bulldogs before rallying for a 31-21 win behind a rushing attack that had 333 yards on 53 attempts.
Arkansas hosts a Southern Mississippi team this week that is mired in a 14-game losing streak, though Bielema said the Razorbacks can't overlook any opponent as they continue to take "baby steps" under their first-year coach.
While Arkansas managed to avoid another stunning loss in Little Rock, such as last year's overtime shocker to Louisiana-Monroe, it must improve in the passing game.
Sophomore quarterback Brandon Allen was just 9 of 17 passing for 125 yards against Samford.
