    FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (KTHV) - It's another award winning weekend for Razorbacks stars. Chris Smith has been named the SEC defensive player of the week.

    For the second week in a row, running back Alex Collins is the SEC freshman of the week. Collins has been part of the super tandem, along with Jonathan Williams at running back, as the Hogs have dashed out to a 3-0 record. Collins is the first true freshman to rush for 100 yards in his first 3 career games.

    The school's athletic director, Jeff Long, was in Little Rock Monday and excited about this season, but also took a moment to address the future of Razorback games at War Memorial.

    "For us it's not at the top of our priority list," Long admitted. "We've got a lot of things to accomplish and, as I mentioned in my remarks, there's a number of things that we're going to keep our fingers on the pulse of that will impact a decision going forward."

    Now the attention turns to this Saturday's game against Rutgers in New Jersey.
