The Arkansas community lost two former players this offseason. Alex Collins and Ryan Mallett both passed away this summer.

Collins lost his life in a motorcycle accident, and Mallett drowned at a beach in Florida. A new tradition honoring the fallen players will start on Saturday as the Razorbacks take on Kent State.

The initials of the former players will be displayed at the 3 and 15-yard lines as those were the numbers they wore in college. The designs will stay at Frank Broyles Field throughout the 2023 season.

The players were also honored at Razorback Stadium this offseason. Mallett had a scoreboard graphic dedicated to him. The entire stadium was lit up red for Collins about a week before the season opener.

The memory of the former Razorbacks will live on. Kickoff for Week 2’s game will be at 4 p.m. ET on SEC Network.
