Arkansas has something to prove against Auburn



FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) — Arkansas receiver Jarius Wright still feels like he has something to prove this week.

The Razorbacks senior, fresh off a school-record 281-yard receiving effort in last week’s win over Texas A&M, still feels like some people have doubts about Arkansas after a 38-14 thrashing at the hands of No. 2 Alabama two weeks ago.

Wright and the rest of the No. 10 Razorbacks (4-1, 0-1 Southeastern Conference) will have the chance to prove any doubters wrong when they host No. 15 Auburn (4-1, 2-0) on Saturday.

The Tigers shut down South Carolina in a 16-13 win last week. But Auburn will face another difficult task this week in facing the league’s top offense and quarterback Tyler Wilson.
