Running Backs — A-

The Arkansas offense is almost totally built around the running of Darren McFadden and Felix Jones, who have for the most part been very steady. Except for the Auburn game — when McFadden and Jones combined for just 85 yards — these two have done just as expected while Arkansas continues to lead the Southeastern Conference in rushing.

The Razorbacks have done away with the fan-favorite WildHog package for the most part, but that hasn't stopped McFadden and Jones from still gaining 249.2 combined rushing yards per game. Add in fullback Peyton Hillis, who is clearly the team's top receiving threat, and the running backs obviously deserve the best grade on the team.

But a few too many fumbles by McFadden and some timely injuries at key points in games — along with the Auburn performance — prevent this group from receiving a perfect mark.
