Overview

Jack Crowe's team improved from a 3–8 record in 1990 to become bowl eligible again in 1991. Punter Pete Raether finished third in the nation in punting average, with 43.6 yards per boot. On the other side of the ball, punt returner Michael James averaged 14.3 yards per return, seventh in the nation.

This season would end Arkansas' tenure in the Southwest conference. The SWC had every team except Arkansas, Rice, and Baylor hit with sanctions or recruiting scandals in the 1980s (including SMU's "Death penalty" in 1987). The conference would finally be dissolved in 1996. The Razorbacks would next call the SEC their next home. South Carolina also joined the SEC this year.

Overview

Head coach Jack Crowe was fired after the first game, when Arkansas lost to FCS The Citadel. Joe Kines was promoted from defensive coordinator to interim head coach until the end of the season, when Danny Ford would be promoted to head man.

In their inaugural SEC season, the Hogs won their first game in the SEC, and also defeated fourth-ranked Tennessee. The Vols would go on to lose the next week to Alabama, and then South Carolina after that, ending any National Title hopes. The Tigers from LSU also lost to the Razorbacks in 1992, in a 30–6 rout. Alabama would continue through the season undefeated, winning an SEC title from the Florida Gators in Birmingham, Alabama, and then the National Championship against Miami in the 1993 Sugar Bowl.[3]
