Today, Arkansas fell to Western Kentucky 45-19 in a stunning defeat. They were down by as much as 38-7 in the third quarter. So Arkansas paid Western Kentucky $1.5 million for the visit. "I thought he handled everything to perfection". Storey had a pair of touchdown runs to help build a 21-7 lead but it was his 69-yard touchdown pass that both put the game away and showed that Storey owned the day.
Overall, the Razorbacks are 2-8 overall and 0-6 in SEC play under second-year coach Chad Morris. Western Kentucky has only suffered a regular-season losing record once, last year, since 2010.
Arkansas also paid San Jose State $1.5 million earlier this season and lost, meaning they paid $3 million total this season to lose home games to those schools.
Western Kentucky: Storey and the Hilltoppers travel to Southern Miss in two weeks after a bye where a win would nearly certainly provide for a postseason berth.
Arkansas does have two wins this year - against Portland State and Colorado State. The Tigers have been ranked each time the teams have met since 2008, including five times in the top 10, where LSU will nearly assuredly be at kickoff Saturday, as well.
