GRR: Heart of America
It would be fair to say that the University of Arkansas came out of nowhere.
The University of Arkansas has qualified for the DIAA National Quarterfinals after thrashing Iowa State 62-7, and thus leapfrogging Kansas State and Missouri to the top of the Heart of America Conference.
While playoffs determine three of the remaining four DIAA national quarterfinalists, one regular-season game makes the decision in the Heart of America.
The University of Arkansas is 4-0-1 with 22 points in the standings. Missouri sits 4-1-1 with 25, and Kansas State is 5-1 with 25 points.
The University of Arkansas took one fairly big step closer to claiming the Heart of America conference with a 67-7 defeat of Truman State Saturday.
Their two main rivals won, also, but it still seems that the Razorbacks are in the driver's seat.
The University of Arkansas did just enough to put themselves in position to win the Heart of America conference after they tied Missouri 24-24 Saturday.
Having beaten previously undefeated Kansas State, the Razorbacks really only had one obstacle in front of them, and it was Mizzou, who had lot to K-State 25-24 in the fall.
