p Wallaby Adam Coleman got the nod ahead of several other more experie Antworten

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. -- It would be so easy for Arkansas to overlook Football Championship Subdivision member Alcorn State on Saturday.Fresh off their first loss of the season and with home games against No. 1 Alabama and No. 16 Mississippi awaiting the next two weeks, the No. 20 Razorbacks (3-1) could easily be forgiven for taking the Braves (1-2) lightly this week.Theres only one problem with that as far as Arkansas is concerned.The game is in Little Rock, not Fayetteville, and War Memorial Stadium hasnt been kind to the Razorbacks in recent years. Including last years shocking loss to Toledo in Arkansas capital city, the Razorbacks are 1-5 in their home away from home since that start of the 2012 season.So, about that trap game scenario again?I think the fact were going to Little Rock and have the memories of what weve had happen there in the past ... wont allow that to happen, Arkansas coach Bret Bielema said.Arkansas recent Little Rock woes began with a loss to Louisiana-Monroe early in the 2012 season, the transitional year between fired former coach Bobby Petrino and Bielema. Interim coach John L. Smith was at the helm that season, which included a second loss in War Memorial Stadium later that season to Ole Miss.Since then, the Razorbacks Little Rock losses have come to Mississippi State in 2013, Georgia in 2014 and last seasons stunner to Toledo.I really cant put a finger on it, Arkansas safety Josh Liddell said. ... The past three years weve kind of come out sluggish and slow, but in the second half we get refocused and came out with more energy. This year, we want to come out with extreme focus and energy level and play fast.Some things to watch as Arkansas looks to end its recent woes in Little Rock:BRAVE OUTLOOK: Alcorn State has been consistently one of the top FCS schools in the country over the last three years, during which time the school has gone 28-10 and won back-to-back Southwestern Athletic Conference championships. The Braves are led by first-year coach Fred McNair, who was previously the teams quarterbacks coach and is in his fifth year at the school.ALLENS RECOVERY: Arkansas quarterback Austin Allen was battered and bruised throughout last weeks 45-24 loss to Texas A&M, but he is recovered and ready for Saturday. The junior has quickly emerged as one of the top quarterbacks in the Southeastern Conference this season, completing 66.9 percent of his passes with nine touchdowns and two interceptions.AIR TROUBLE: After earning a win over Alabama State, Alcorn State has lost its last two games to Arkansas-Pine Bluff and Grambling State. Many of the Braves troubles can be traced to a secondary that features four new starters from a year ago and is 119th out of 122 FCS teams in passing yardage allowed -- giving up an average of 324.7 yards per game through the air. Were young in the secondary and thats where all our hits are coming, McNair said.STILL STREAKING: Despite last weeks loss, the Razorbacks have won nine of their last 11 games overall to help Bielema reach .500 (21-21) in his fourth season at Arkansas. He was 3-9 in his first season in 2013 but has taken the Razorbacks to bowl games in each of the last two seasons.SACK ARTIST: Alcorn State linebacker Darrien Anderson is tied for the lead in sacks in the FCS with 6 + in only three games, including four last week against Grambling State. The 6-foot-1, 240-pound senior also leads the Braves with 30 tackles. Chris Kreider Jersey . Detroit and Boston are deadlocked, 1-1, and Tigers manager Jim Leyland could be forgiven if he was caught rationalizing instead of dissecting how his club could blow a 5-1 lead late in Game 2. Eddie Giacomin Jersey .Y. -- Canadas Kaillie Humphries and Heather Moyse have another World Cup gold medal after winning the two-women bobsled race on Saturday in Lake Placid, N. . The native of Mont-Tremblant, Que., captured a World Cup downhill event Saturday, his second this year and fifth career victory on the circuit. Harry Howell Jersey . Patrice Bergeron and Daniel Paille scored 20 seconds apart a few minutes after Stamkos was taken off the ice on a stretcher with a broken right leg, and the Bruins beat the Lightning 3-0 on Monday afternoon. Brian Leetch Jersey . Pedro scored from a pass by Lionel Messi in the 33rd minute and added two more goals in the 47th and 72nd after Valdes saved his second penalty in four days following his stop in Wednesdays 4-0 over Ajax in the Champions League. Rugby fans took issue with Wallabies coach Michael Cheika over two key positions and opted for uncapped emerging stars Sefanaia Naivalu and Jed Holloway in an Australian Super Rugby team of the year selected by the public.Fijian-born Melbourne Rebels winger Naivalu and NSW Waratahs No.8 Holloway were the only two non-internationals in the team in a Rugby Union Players Association Peoples Choice poll released on Tuesday.?Of the established stars, David Pocock was chosen ahead of Michael Hooper at openside flanker and Israel Folau instead of Tevita Kuridrani at outside centre.Folau was listed at 13 for the Waratahs last ten Super Rugby games, but Cheika has repeatedly nominated fullback as his preferred position for the game-breaking back.At last years World Cup, Hooper invariably started at openside with Pocock at No.8, but the poll only allowed for players to be chosen in one position.Australias immense depth at openside was emphasised by the fact the other three candidates in the poll were also Test players in Sean McMahon, Liam Gill and Matt Hodgson.At 195cm, 23-year-old Holloway potentially gives Cheika an option of a taller No.8 than either Pocock (183 cms) or McMahon (186 cms), who have occupied that spot in recent times.Holloway, who made the Peoples Choice team ahead of established Wallaby Ben McCalman, enjoyed a breakout Super Rugby season which included a hatt-trick of tries off the bench against the Highlanders, until he suffered a competition-ending shoulder injury.dddddddddddde could be back in time for part of the upcoming NRC and might be a bolter for the Wallabies spring tour, along with 24-year-old Naivalu, who will then be eligible to represent Australia.RUPAs 2015 Newcomer of the Year, Naivalu scored six tries in as many games in the second half of the Super season.One of the most interesting selections was at right lock, where one-cap Wallaby Adam Coleman got the nod ahead of several other more experienced internationals.Coleman, who made his debut of the bench in the final Test of the England series in June, polled more votes than 62-cap veteran Rob Simmons, Will Skelton (15 Tests) and Sam Carter (13 Tests).Rugby Union Players Association Peoples Choice Team: Dane Haylett-Petty (Western Force), Sefanaia Naivalu (Melbourne Rebels), Israel Folau (NSW Waratahs), Matt Toomua (Brumbies), Rob Horne (NSW Waratahs), Bernard Foley (NSW Waratahs), Nick Phipps (NSW Waratahs), Jed Holloway (NSW Waratahs), David Pocock (Brumbies), Scott Fardy (Brumbies), Adam Coleman (Western Force), Rory Arnold (Brumbies), Greg Holmes (Queensland Reds), Stephen Moore (Brumbies), James Slipper (Queensland Reds).
