FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. -- Arkansas offensive lineman Anthony Oden and fullback Van Stumon are suspended for the No. 17 Razorbacks' season opener against Tennessee Tech.

Coach Bobby Petrino didn't say why the two are being held out for Saturday's game. Each was arrested during the offseason on suspicion of driving while intoxicated.

Petrino said as of Wednesday, the plan was to sideline the two for one game.

Oden, a sophomore, started one game last year. Stumon, a senior, started two.
