Week 2 was a rough game for Arkansas, with an upset loss to Colorado State in the 4th quarter. Going into week 2, many fans saw Arkansas as a clear favorite over Colorado State, but this wouldn’t be college football without a few upsets here and there.
With a rare away game versus Colorado State, Arkansas was expected to win with an high scoreline to show for it. Despite the high expectations, you could tell right from the beginning of the game that Colorado State was already looking to put up a fight. With a defeat secured late in the 4th quarter, many Arkansas fans were disappointed with the result of the game.
With last week’s game mainly consisting of passing, this week was a complete flip to the opposite side with rushing being the main damage for the day. Arkansas finished with 299 yards rushing that day, while passing was at 138 yards. Although with the passing being good, Arkansas lost the game to Colorado State late in the 4th.
I asked one Student, Sophia Jaquez, what they thought about the game. “I expected them to win, but was more surprised when they lost”.
