There are some big-time issues down in Fayetteville right now.

After Arkansas jumped out to a 24-0 lead in the first half of the Belk Bowl, Virginia Tech scored five touchdowns in the second half — en route to a 35-24 victory.

It marked the third major collapse in the second half for the Razorbacks this season. Finishing the 2016 season at 7-6, there are some unfavorable trends simmering within the program at this current time.

The inconsistency is certainly something to take into account. In head coach Bret Bielema’s tenure, Arkansas has gone 25-26 — including a 10-22 conference record. Prior to this loss, Arkansas had accrued a win-loss-win-loss-win-loss-win-loss-win-loss streak dating back to Week 3 of this year.

Tied against Texas A&M at halftime, Arkansas was outscored by 21 points in the second half. Similarly, the Razorbacks lost their season-finale to an undermanned Missouri team after being up 24-7 at halftime (the final score was 28-24).

Lastly, Arkansas was outscored by 62 points in the second half of games during the regular season. Including Thursday’s loss, opponents have outscored Arkansas by 97 points in the second half of games. Arkansas also entered the game ranked No. 110 in second-half scoring margin. This made the Razorbacks the worst among teams with a winning record.

One has to wonder…is Bielema now on the hot seat?
