Arkansas QB Brandon Allen’s Car Set on Fire [PHOTO]
Most starting quarterbacks around college football have enough to worry about as the season gets underway, especially if you’re playing in the Southeastern Conference. For Arkansas’ Brandon Allen, he’ll have an added distraction to deal with this week.
KATV in Little Rock has confirmed that the junior’s car was set on fire Sunday night as he and the team begin preparations for the defending SEC Champion Auburn on Saturday.

Police are investigating arson this morning as a result but no further details have been released.
The Fayetteville native enters his second year as the starting quarterback for the Razorbacks as the team looks to improve on a winless conference record in 2013. Despite finishing the year with a nine-game losing streak, Allen improved down the stretch as Arkansas came up just short in its final three games of the year, including a gut-wrenching defeat at LSU.
The Razorbacks begin the season at Auburn. That game airs at 3:00PM CT on the SEC Network.
