FAYETTEVILLE (AP) - Arkansas hopes to find the answer to slowing down Texas A&M's Johnny Manziel in its second game against the talented quarterback.

The Razorbacks (3-1) host the No. 10 Aggies (3-1, 0-1 Southeastern Conference) on Saturday in their conference opener. It's Texas A&M's first trip to Razorback Stadium since 1990, when both schools were members of the Southwest Conference.

Led by Manziel's 557 yards of total offense, Texas A&M rolled to a 58-10 victory over Arkansas last season.

The Razorbacks are coming off their first loss of the season, 28-24 last week at Rutgers. They played that game without quarterback Brandon Allen, who is questionable again this week.

If Allen is unable to play, junior-college transfer AJ Derby, who was 14-of-26 passing for 137 yards last week, will start.
