Smith, who has been playing matters “close to the vest” all week, simply said (this morning) that Tyler Wilson is a “game-time decision” according to a statement released by the school.

Wilson, who suffered a concussion last week against Louisiana-Monroe, is unfortunately no stranger to head trauma. Wilson fell victim to a concussion last season, but returned to play the following week.
If Wilson is indeed out, Arkansas will either turn to redshirt freshman Brandon Allen, who received significant playing time against
LA-Monroe, or junior Brandon Mitchell, who has played both quarterback and wide receiver for the Razorbacks during his career.
Logic would suggest that Allen would be awarded the start, but a package where Mitchell enters the game at quarterback is certainly not out of the question. Given the overall scope of the contest, and what a victory would mean to Arkansas’ season, the Razorbacks would be more than willing to entertain a series of "smoke and mirrors" at the quarterback position.
