The Week 12 AP Top 25 Poll included the usual big names but also a glaring omission: Arkansas.

Look beyond the Razorbacks’ 6-4 record, and you see a team nobody wants to play.

November football is where it counts and the AP missed a golden opportunity to give some overdue love to a team that’s come on strong after a horrible start to 2015.

Everything that could go wrong did for the Razorbacks as losses to Toledo and Texas Tech led to a 2-4 start and derailed what many thought could’ve been a contender for the conference title.

Coach Bret Bielema and his team rallied and now sit fourth in the SEC West having beaten two of the three teams ahead of them (Ole Miss and LSU) in the past two weeks.

“Arkansas is one of the hottest teams in the SEC, one of the hotter teams in the nation,” Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen (Arkansas’ opponent next week) told reporters Monday. “(If) they get a lead it’s tough to come back. They control the clock. They control the tempo of the game.”

The Razorbacks rank fifth in the nation in time of possession at over 33 minutes per game, the most in the SEC.

The biggest problem with the AP’s snub of Arkansas this week is the fact that their absence leaves more teams from the Pac-12, five, in the Top 25, than the SEC, four.

From the preseason poll on, the Pac-12 continues to be the most overhyped conference in college football.

No. 22 USC (7-3) and No. 23 Oregon (7-3) head into Week 12 on four-game winning streak, like Arkansas, so the Razorbacks will have to wait another week to leapfrog them, but Washington State (7-3) at No. 23 makes little sense considering how well Arkansas is playing.

The Razorbacks look like one of the best teams in college football at the moment and Washington State plays in a conference that doesn’t have a team in the Top 14.

Does anyone truly think the Cougars could slow down the red-hot Razorbacks?

Arkansas did already play the No. 25 team, Ole Miss, and won in OT on the road, yet the Razorbacks only get listed as “others receiving votes” this week.

That should change after a trip to Mississippi State on Saturday.
