Arkansas Football: Korliss Marshall has strong performance in Razorbacks' spring game

Arkansas Razorbacks head coach Bret Bielema will always base his offense around the running game. When he arrived in Fayetteville prior to last season, he made this widely known for those that may not have paid much attention to what he did during his time with the Wisconsin Badgers.

Although his first season at the helm last year was not what he would have liked, the rushing game was on full display in 2013 with the performance of freshman Alex Collins who finished up the season with over 1,000 yards, but in the spring game on Saturday, Korliss Marshall showed that he wants to get in on the action this year in helping lead the Razorbacks back toward the top of the SEC.

Marshall was by far the most outstanding performer in the spring game on Saturday, finishing up the afternoon with 99 yards on the ground and two touchdowns while splitting time in the backfield on the first-team with both Collins and Jonathan Williams.

There is the potential this season that Bielema and the Arkansas offense will have three very capable running backs at their disposal at any given time, which is a good starting point to getting back into conference contention.
