Wisconsin Coach Bret Bielema agreed to become the new coach at Arkansas, taking over a program that stumbled from scandal into an awful season that had begun with hopes of challenging for a national championship. Arkansas had brought in John L. Smith for this season after firing Bobby Petrino when he hired his mistress to work in the football department. Arkansas finished 4-8, and Smith was dismissed.
