Bret Bielema: No changes to offensive line despite struggles against Louisiana Tech
Arkansas’ usually dominant offensive line struggled against Louisiana Tech, but coach Bret Bielema said he won’t shuffle the linemen, according to a report from 247Sports.
The Razorbacks ended up escaping with a 21-20 win despite giving up four sacks and struggling to give quarterback Austin Allen sufficient time in the pocket. That came after Arkansas allowed only 14 sacks all of last season, yet Bielema will stick with the unit that features three new starters as the Hogs gear up to face No. 13 TCU on Saturday night.
The two returning starters on the offensive line, Frank Ragnow and Dan Skipper, are at new positions, and left guard Hjalte Froholdt is a converted defensive lineman. The unit showed some promise toward the end of the game, marching 67 yards to score the winning touchdown before grinding out the final 3 minutes and 35 seconds to preserve the win.
