Arkansas was ranked in the top 10 earlier this season after starting 3-0.

But the Razorbacks have lost 3 consecutive games since, including a 40-17 setback at Mississippi State this past Saturday.

Hampering Arkansas’ cause was that starting quarterback KJ Jefferson was unable to play.

It appears, however, as if Jefferson will be back for the Razorbacks on Saturday against BYU.

Arkansas coach Sam Pittman provided the update during his media availability Monday.

“It’s a normal week. He just can’t get hit today would be that protocol,” Pittman said, per “He never gets hit anyway at practice, so he can go ahead and do his full thing today.”

The Razorbacks and Cougars meet in Provo on Saturday. The game is set to kick off at 3:30 pm. (ET) and will be televised by ESPN.

Arkansas is currently a 1.5-point favorite.
