FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas is counting on a spark from the return of quarterback Tyler Wilson when it hosts undefeated Rutgers.
The Razorbacks (1-2) are coming off back-to-back losses, including a crushing 52-0 defeat against No. 1 Alabama last week. Wilson, last season's first-team All-Southeastern Conference quarterback, didn't play in that loss or the second half of a loss to Louisiana-Monroe the week before.
The senior was cleared Thursday to return from a concussion against the Scarlet Knights (3-0), who are looking to start 4-0 for only the second time since joining the Big East in 1991.
Rutgers is 12th nationally in total defense and is led offensively by junior running back Jawan Jamison, who set a school record with 41 carries in a win over South Florida.
