Arkansas QB Tyler Wilson Will Play Vs. Rutgers

The Arkansas Razorbacks will have their star quarterback back when they face off against the Rutgers Scarlet Knights, as Tyler Wilson will return from a concussion.

Wilson's injury marked the point where everything started to go wrong for Arkansas: he threw for 563 yards and five touchdowns in a blowout win over Jacksonville State and the beginning of the team's game against Louisiana-Monroe. After his injury, the Razorbacks watched their lead against the Warhawks evaporate, eventually losing in overtime, losing a top-10 rating to drop out of the rankings completely, and getting shut out 52-0 by Alabama. In six quarters without Wilson, Arkansas has only managed 10 points.

This isn't good news for Rutgers: Arkansas was expected to be one of the nation's elite with the first-team, all-SEC quarterback calling signals, and were performing at a high level before his injury.

The Razorbacks' offense will likely return to an intimidating form with the senior at the helm, meaning Arkansas will likely be Rutgers' toughest test thus far in the season, as anybody would have expected before the year started.
