Title-contender? Disappointment? Where will Arkansas be after Saturday

don't lie to yourself Playing them "one game at a time" is the best approach. But the only people who really do that are the players and coaches.
Sometimes fans get angry with media representatives because they look ahead. "Who cares, we have to defeat such and such first." Who is the "we" in this sentence? The players and coaches have to beat this and that first. Me and you? We don't have to hit or do anything or anyone. Forget the fact that the release of the college football playoff rankings starts a few weeks before the end of the season and that preseason all-something teams exist.

So it's worth looking ahead. In this case only until Sunday.
Arkansas and Texas A&M renew their Southwest Classic rivalry Saturday at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington. The Razorbacks naturally pulled off a nine-game sled last year with a 20-10 win over A&M. The next day, Arkansas was ranked number 8 in the country, its highest ranking in a decade.
This year, Arkansas is already knocking on that door. Coach Sam Pittman has his team ranked 10th in the nation. Considering the Aggies are favored in the game and still commanding more national attention, it's easy to imagine a win in Arkansas propelling the Razorbacks into the single digits when it comes to the rankings.
At this point everything goes. Arkansas was whispered about playing spoilers after the A&M game last year. It was quickly shot down as Georgia played like a cat with yarn with Arkansas the next week. The Bulldogs won the national title just over three months later.
Coincidentally, the Razorbacks get Alabama the week after A&M this year. The Crimson Tide are just as popular as the old UGA. The difference, however, is that Arkansas is getting Bama at home and this year's flood has already shown some weaknesses.
So, yes, you must forgive us for looking ahead. A win against Texas A&M on Saturday would do wonders for the Razorbacks and their plans.
