FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - One of Arkansas' most heated, and perhaps most crucial, position battles so far this preseason hasn't even been for a starting spot.

Rather, it's the competition between quarterbacks Austin Allen and Rafe Peavey for the backup spot to starter Brandon Allen that has had the full attention of the coaches and fanbase.

How quickly either Austin Allen or Peavey assert themselves as the clear No. 2 option under center could play a role in how Arkansas rebounds from last season's 3-9 disappointment - a year in which the lack of a high-level backup significantly hampered the Razorbacks.

Arkansas offensive coordinator Jim Chaney says Allen is considered the No. 2 quarterback ''right now,'' though the competition is ongoing.

The Razorbacks open the season at Auburn on Aug. 30.
