Bielema backs Allen as Arkansas' bowl hopes fade
FAYETTEVILLE - Bret Bielema has never failed to reach a bowl game in his seven seasons as a head coach, a streak that's likely to end in his first year at Arkansas.
It's a streak the former Wisconsin coach has avoided talking about with the Razorbacks (3-6, 0-5 Southeastern Conference), losers of six straight following last week's loss to No. 7 Auburn.
Bielema is just focused at this point on finding as much positive as possible as Arkansas winds down what will likely be its second straight losing season. Arkansas plays at Ole Miss (5-3, 2-3) on Saturday.
He's also standing behind sophomore quarterback Brandon Allen, who has struggled in his first season as the starter.
