Toledo had their season opener versus Stony Brook canceled a little bit after halftime due to weather. The Rockets led 16-7 at the time, and all stats from the game will not count. So that means Toledo enters week two at 0-0. We do know that Phillip Ely started that game, and that Toledo had trouble moving the ball early on before taking the lead after the first lightning delay.
Arkansas rolled UTEP last week as quarterback Brandon Allen averaged over 17 yards per completion. Alex Collins also help carry the Razorbacks on the ground, running for over 10 yards per carry for 127 yards on the day. Rawleigh Williams took the most carries for Arkansas, but only finished with 45 yards on 16 carries. UTEP also had reasonable success on the SEC West defense, with running back Aaron Jones going for 70 yards on 15 carries, and the Miners completed over 70 percent of their passes between three different quarterbacks.

Players to Watch
Phillip Ely (QB, Toledo)- The Alabama transfer will start once again for Toledo after starting the season opener versus Stony Brook that was wiped. He'll need to be great on third downs if Toledo is to have a chance versus the Razorbacks.
Damion Jones-Moore (RB, Toledo)- With star running back Kareem Hunt out of the lineup, Jones-Moore needs to be a perfect replacement to help keep UT in the game.
Brandon Allen (QB, Arkansas)- Allen was exceptional in the Razorbacks' 48-13 victory over UTEP. He completed 14 passes on 18 attempts for 308 yards through the air last Saturday.
Alex Collins (RB, Arkansas)- Collins is the backbone of the Arkansas offense. He ran for 127 yards on 12 carries last week.
