Quarterback Kiehl Frazier spent much of Auburn's open date watching film of passers such as Chad Henne and Tom Brady trying to improve footwork and timing. Frazier says he thinks he'll "look a lot different from LSU to Arkansas."

He's certainly facing a more vulnerable defense with the Razorbacks giving up nearly 350 passing yards a game entering Saturday.

Frazier has struggled just like the Razorbacks' passing defense. He's not among the 100 passers in yards per game or rating listed by the NCAA.

Frazier has thrown for two touchdown passes in four games and been intercepted seven times.

He'll be without one of his most reliable wide receivers with Quan Bray suspended.

Arkansas is 117th in pass defense and Auburn's passing offense is only a few spots better (114th).
