First-year Arkansas head coach Sam Pittman led his Razorbacks into Fayetteville to take on the fourth-ranked Georgia Bulldogs to open his initial season with the program.

No one really gave Arkansas much of a chance in this one. The team was a 26.5-point underdog, one of the highest totals during the SEC’s initial week of action around the nation.

Don’t tell that to the battery mate of Feleipe Franks and sophomore wide receiver Treylon Burks. Check out the duo burning Georgia’s talented defense early in Saturday’s game with a 49-yard catch and run for a touchdown.

A day that has already been filled with a top-three team in the nation going down in stunning fashion could now have other major underdogs taking out superior competition.

As for Franks, he last appeared in a college football game as a member of the Florida Gators during the 2019 season. Franks was the Gators’ full-time starter back in 2018, throwing 24 touchdowns compared to six interceptions.
