Arkansas’ big road wins last week over Kentucky and No. 10 Missouri has vaulted them into the Associated Press Top 25 — barely — at No. 24.
It is the first time in three years the Hogs have made it into the rankings.
The Tigers had an 0-2 week last week and fell to No. 20. Alabama (8) and Tennessee (19) are the only other SEC teams to be ranked.
The Hogs’ game against Florida (17 votes in the poll this week) on Tuesday night will be the first home game as a ranked team since being 18th and LSU came to Fayetteville on March 7, 2015.
The last time Arkansas was ranked was the 2017-18 season, moving to No. 22 after an overtime win over No. 19 Tennessee, but that didn’t last long.
Back-to-back road losses at Mississippi State and Auburn kicked the Hogs out of the poll.
When the Razorbacks welcome Florida, which received 17 votes in this week’s AP Poll, to Bud Walton Arena on Tuesday, it will be their first home game as a ranked team since hosting LSU as the No. 18 team on March 7, 2015.
