FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) -- Arkansas has answered plenty of questions about itself the last two weeks.

Following a 38-14 loss at Alabama on Sept. 24, the No. 10 Razorbacks (5-1, 1-1 Southeastern Conference) responded with a pair of wins over ranked opponents in Texas A&M and Auburn.

Arkansas is still hoping for return trip to a BCS bowl game and it has plenty of momentum heading into its bye week. Quarterback Tyler Wilson has led the way for the Razorbacks, throwing for nearly 1,800 yards and 12 touchdowns and earning the respect of his teammates and coaches.

Arkansas opens the second half of its season at Mississippi next week. The Razorbacks are likely to be favored in each of their remaining games until they travel to top-ranked LSU on Nov. 25.
