Top-ranked Florida finally got a complete defensive performance, and Doug Johnson threw for three touchdowns Saturday night in a 56-7 Southeastern Conference victory over Arkansas. The Gators (5-0, 3-0 in the SEC) had this one wrapped up when Bo Carroll returned the opening kickoff 94 yards for a touchdown and the defense held Arkansas to only one first down until its final possession of the first half.

Les Miles has a pretty sweet gig at LSU. He's making somewhere in the neighborhood of $4 million a season as the Tigers' head coach. And in his eight seasons with the team, he's led it to an 85-20 record, one national title, two BCS championship games and two SEC titles. Why would he want to leave? He probably doesn't, although Arkansas has reportedly given him 27.5 million reasons to at least consider it. That's the number in dollars that multiple sources have reported the Razorbacks have offered Miles in a five-year deal to become their next head coach.

The team wearing red marched downfield and scored the winning touchdown as time expired. This time, however, it wasn't the home team. J.J. Meadors dove on his belly to catch a fourth-down pass in the end zone with six seconds remaining to give Arkansas one of its biggest victories in years, a 20-19 win over No. 13 Alabama in a Southeastern Conference game on Saturday.

The best part of breaking up the Bowl Championship Series? Fans of top-notch college football won't be subjected to the Big East Conference champion playing in a prominent postseason game. In football, the Big East is the Big Least. Louisville and Rutgers entered play Saturday ranked in the Associated Press top 25, but hopefully that charade is over. No. 19 Louisville, playing at home against lowly Connecticut, lost, 23-20, in triple overtime. No. 21 Rutgers was routed by Pittsburgh, 27-6.

The last time Arkansas was defeated in an NCAA tournament game, it was by eventual national champion North Carolina. That was two years ago in an East Regional semifinal. Since then, the Razorbacks have won 10 consecutive NCAA tournament games--and last year's national championship--and they thank the Tar Heels for their success. "After we lost that game, we realized that we needed to take our program to a higher level in order to win it all," Arkansas Coach Nolan Richardson said about the Hogs' 80-74 loss to North Carolina in 1993.

Several notable plot twists have involved motorcycles:"Easy Rider,""The Great Escape," "On Any Sunday" and "Every Which Way But Loose. " The last was a 1978 comedy starring Clint Eastwood and "Clyde," his orangutan sidekick. It spawned the sequel "Any Which Way You Can. " None of those yarns, as far as we know, affected the race for the national title in college football. An off-season excursion by a "hog" riding a hog, however, may have literally tipped the balance in this year's chase.

Nolan Richardson's teams have won some big games during his eight years as Arkansas' coach, but none was as important to Richardson as Sunday's 86-80 victory over No. 9 Arizona at Tucson. "To me, this is probably one of the biggest, if not the biggest, wins . . . simply because we were an unknown," Richardson said. "I didn't know if we had the squad to win here. We didn't have an identity. But now I think we've changed the expectations of some people."

A few weeks ago, I was up in the northwest corner of Arkansas, roaming some Ozarks highways and nosing around Eureka Springs and Fayetteville, home of the University of Arkansas Razorbacks.

BOISE, Idaho - Nose tackle Mike Atkinson returned an interception 36 yards for a touchdown and No. 24 Boise State held off Brigham Young, 7-6, on Thursday night in a game dominated by defense. Boise State (2-1) forced five turnovers and held the Cougars (2-2) to 200 total yards. The Boise State offense wasn't that much better, managing 261 total yards. Atkinson's big play came early in the third quarter when he dropped back into coverage, picked of Riley Nelson's short pass and rumbled into the end zone.

It was a tough weekend for Arkansas  football, as the Razorbacks fell from No. 8 out of the top 25 following a shocking overtime loss to Louisiana Monroe. Not everyone is giving up on the Hogs, though, as this heart-felt video  is sure to pig-nose inspire the school as it prepares to host No.1 Alabama this week. Did Saturday's loss kill Arkansas' national title dreams? Never! No league rallies around its own like the Southeastern Conference. Should Arkansas somehow rally to win the rest of its games, you can rest assured the SEC will mount a convincing defense.

Eager to move on from the Bobby Petrino scandal, Arkansas announced Monday that popular former assistant John L. Smith will return as head coach of the Razorbacks next season. Smith, who left the Razorbacks after last season to become the head coach at Weber State, will be formally introduced Tuesday. The school said Smith signed a one-year, $850,000 contract and will also be eligible for other incentives. Smith's return caps a whirlwind three weeks for an Arkansas program reeling from revelations of an affair by Petrino with a woman, Jessica Dorrell , he later hired as his assistant.
