* FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) -- Arkansas football players are set to assist in cleanup efforts after the massive tornado that plowed through Joplin. Arkansas officials say members of the Razorbacks' squad plan to arrive at Missouri Southern State University in Joplin on Wednesday afternoon and will be bused to cleanup sites. The EF-5 tornado packed winds of more than 200 mph when it hit the southwest Missouri city of about 50,000 people on May 22. The twister killed more than 100 people and damaged or destroyed an estimated 8,000 homes and apartments, along with hundreds of commercial buildings, schools, a hospital, power transformers and other infrastructure.
