Arkansas' Bret Bielema takes issue with Auburn game film

New, comments

The Razorbacks head coach alleges discrepancies between game films.

Arkansas head coach Bret Bielema is sort of accusing Auburn of sending misleading game film ahead of their upcoming matchup, and has contacted the SEC office about it.

In his weekly news conference, Bielema said the "TV copy" of Auburn's game tape did not match the "film copy," and said the only reason he was able to compare the two was the Razorbacks' bye week before the game.

Specifically, Bielema took issue with a "swinging gate" formation on extra points that he spotted when reviewing TV footage but not when watching the copy Auburn sent.

The head coach made sure to say that he thought it was a "glitch," not an intentional deception by the Auburn coaching staff.

During SEC Media Days, Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn said he thought a comment made by Bielema on the hurry-up offense causing injuries was "a joke," and Bielema went on a 500-word rant to end all rants.

Kick-off is scheduled for 6 p.m. ET this Saturday on ESPN2.
