Arkansas looks to break skid at Auburn

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas' 58-10 loss to Texas A&M last week was just another setback in a season full of disappointments.

Interim coach John L. Smith must now find a way for the Razorbacks (1-4, 0-2 Southeastern Conference) to keep hope as they prepare to visit Auburn (1-3, 0-2) this week.

Arkansas' loss to the Aggies was its third worst in the school's 21-season history in the SEC. It's a category that Arkansas has become familiar with in recent weeks, given that the school's worst loss in the conference - a 52-0 drubbing at the hands of No. 1 Alabama - came just two weeks prior.

Razorbacks quarterback Tyler Wilson says the team hasn't resigned itself to a losing season and still holds out hope of a bowl game.
