Rankings from AP Poll

The 1992 Arkansas Razorbacks football team represented the University of Arkansas during the 1992 NCAA Division I-A football season.[2] Head coach Jack Crowe was fired after the first game, when Arkansas lost to FCS The Citadel. Joe Kines was promoted from defensive coordinator to interim head coach until the end of the season, when Danny Ford would be promoted to head man.

In their inaugural SEC season, the Hogs won their first game in the SEC, and also defeated fourth-ranked Tennessee, thanks to a game winning 41-yard field goal by kicker Todd Wright with just two seconds left in the game. The Vols would go on to lose the next week to Alabama, and then South Carolina after that, ending any National Title hopes. The Tigers from LSU also lost to the Razorbacks in 1992, in a 30–6 rout. Alabama would continue through the season undefeated, winning an SEC title from the Florida Gators in Birmingham, Alabama, and then the National Championship against Miami in the 1993 Sugar Bowl.[3]
