Fast start sparks Auburn to rout of Arkansas

Auburn used a fast start along with a 21-point third quarter, that included two touchdown passes from Payton Thorne, and rolled to a 48-10 victor over host Arkansas on Saturday at Fayetteville, Ark.

Thorne finished with 163 yards passing and three scores and added 88 rushing yards with a TD on the ground. Keionte Scott helped set the tone early for Auburn with a 75-yard punt return for a score in the first quarter.

Jarquez Hunter had 16 carries for 109 yards and added two receptions for 14 yards for the Tigers (6-4, 3-4 SEC).

Auburn’s Rivaldo Fairweather had three catches for 28 yards and two touchdowns, while Ja’Varrius Johnson tallied three receptions for 53 yards and a score.

KJ Jefferson had 116 yards passing and added 50 yards on the ground for Razorbacks (3-7, 1-6). Backup quarterback Jacolby Criswell threw a TD pass to Isaac TeSlaa and ran for 64 yards.
Andrew Armstrong added two receptions for 34 yards for Arkansas.

Auburn jumped out to a 7-0 lead on its opening drive when Thorne capped a six-play, 75-yard drive with a 12-yard touchdown run. The score was aided by a 45-yard reception from Caleb Burton III.

After holding Arkansas to a three-and-out on its opening possession, Scott’s punt return put Auburn up 14-0 with 11:01 to go in the opening quarter.

Following a Razorbacks punt on their ensuing possession, the Tigers went up 21-0 when Thorne connected with Fairweather for an 11-yard touchdown with 6:28 to play in the first quarter.

Arkansas cut Auburn’s lead to 21-3 after a nifty interception return by Dwight McGlothern set up Cam Little’s 39-yard field goal.

The Tigers upped their lead to 24-3 with 1:11 to play in the second quarter when Alex McPherson capped a 13-play, 73-yard drive with a 39-yard field goal.

A strip-sack by Elijah McAllister on Jefferson inside Arkansas territory set McPherson up for a 32-yard field goal, which gave the Tigers a 27-3 lead at the half.

On its opening drive of the second half, Auburn went up 34-3 when Johnson hauled in a 14-yard touchdown pass. The Tigers went up 41-3 after a fumble return by Caleb Wooden led to a 11-yard TD reception by Fairweather.

Arkansas, Auburn meet as offenses appear settled

Two teams mired toward the bottom of the SEC West standings will meet when Auburn hits the road Saturday to take on Arkansas at Fayetteville, Ark.

Auburn (5-4, 2-4 SEC) is fifth in the conference’s West standings behind Texas A&M, but the Tigers are one win away from bowl eligibility after knocking off Vanderbilt 31-15 last week.

Arkansas (3-6, 1-5) is tied with Mississippi State for last in the division, but the Razorbacks enter this week with a bit of momentum following a 39-36 overtime win at Florida on Saturday.

After Auburn gave Robby Ashford sporadic playing time at quarterback through the first seven games, head coach Hugh Freeze has settled on Payton Thorne as the starter.

During the Tigers’ current two-game winning streak, Thorne has passed for 424 yards and five touchdowns despite throwing an interception that was returned for a touchdown against Vanderbilt. Thorne’s numbers could be even better if it weren’t for dropped passes.

Freeze counted seven dropped passes in the win over Vanderbilt and a couple could have gone for scores. Tigers running back Jarquez Hunter has 327 yards rushing and two touchdowns over the past two games to help carry the offense.

“We’ve got to focus and be able to finish games and make those catches that put us in third and manageable or first down scenarios,” Freeze said.

After opening the season with two wins, Arkansas dropped six straight before its win over Florida. Five of the Razorbacks’ defeats were by a touchdown or less, with the worst of the six setbacks a 34-22 loss to Texas A&M at Arlington, Texas.

Veteran Arkansas quarterback KJ Jefferson passed for 255 yards and two touchdowns and ran for 92 yards and a score to lead Arkansas to its first ever road win at Florida.

Raheim “Rocket” Sanders had 103 yards on 18 carries against the Gators in his best game of the season after being slowed by a knee injury for much of the year.

With Jefferson and Sanders set to move the offense, Auburn’s scrappy defense, at 21.7 points-allowed per game, will be tested against a capable offense in what’s expected to be an emotional environment.

“Excited to get back home against a team in Auburn that’s playing really well,” Pittman said.

In OT, Arkansas wins at Florida for first time

KJ Jefferson’s 4-yard scoring pass to Tyrone Broden lifted Arkansas to a 39-36 overtime victory over Florida and snapped the Razorbacks’ six-game losing streak Saturday afternoon, winning for the first time ever in Gainesville, Fla.

After the Gators’ Trey Smack made his third field goal in the first series possession of overtime, Jefferson had a 20-yard keeper and Raheim Sanders spun out for 11 yards before Jefferson hit Broden on a short slant for the game-winner.

Jefferson was 20 for 31 for 255 yards with an interception and touchdown passes to Broden and AJ Green. The quarterback also rushed for 92 yards on 17 carries with a score.

Sanders had 103 yards on 18 rushes and Andrew Armstrong caught three passes for 103 yards. Kicker Cam Little was 4 for 5 on field goals as the
Razorbacks (3-6, 1-5 SEC West) won for the first time at Florida in six tries.

The Gators (5-4, 3-3 SEC East) saw Graham Mertz complete 26 of 42 passes for 282 yards and three scores.

Eugene Wilson III (8 catches, 90 yards) had two TDs while Ricky Pearsall also caught one.

Trevor Etienne rushed for 80 yards on 12 carries with a score.

After Jefferson’s eight-yard score to Green at 12:06, Jaylon Braxton made it 14-0 when he stripped Pearsall and raced 34 yards just 12 seconds later.

However, Florida tied it on two scoring tosses from Mertz to Wilson, from 19 yards and six yards, with 2:04 left in the first quarter.

The kickers traded field goals to round out the first half’s scoring — Little from 37, Trey Smack from 47 — to tie it at 17.

Florida recovered a fumble late in the third quarter, and Mertz found Pearsall over the middle from 32 yards. But a bad hold resulted in a failed PAT attempt and a 23-20 home advantage.

In the fourth, Little tied it for a third time on his third field goal, a 22-yarder at 12:54.

Nearly five minutes later, Smack put the Gators ahead for the second time with a good kick from 34 yards.

Jefferson called his own number and ran 25 yards for a score with 4:26 left, totaling 55 rushing yards on the drive. But Etienne dashed in from 26 yards just over a minute later.

Afters Little’s 49-yarder with 44 seconds left, Smack missed a 44-yard try on regulation’s final play.

Jalen Milroe, No. 11 Alabama look to stay hot vs. Arkansas

Jalen Milroe no longer has to look over his shoulder and is firmly entrenched as Alabama’s starting quarterback.

Benched earlier this season, Milroe has since displayed he is the top signal-caller on the roster, and he will look to help the No. 11 Crimson Tide win their fifth straight game when they face Arkansas on Saturday in Southeastern Conference play at Tuscaloosa, Ala.

Milroe further stamped his name atop the depth chart by throwing three touchdown passes and compiling a career-high 321 yards through the air in last Saturday’s 26-20 road win over Texas A&M.

He lost the starting gig after throwing two interceptions in a 34-24 home loss to then-No. 11 Texas on Sept. 9.

The next week, he never got into the game as Tyler Buchner and Ty Simpson handled the QB duties against South Florida. The Alabama offense was lethargic throughout that 17-3 victory, and it was a one-score game until the Crimson Tide scored a touchdown with 33 seconds left.

That contest made it clear to Saban that there was no longer a quarterback dilemma. The focus now is on helping Milroe improve.

“You cannot allow one play to affect the next play,” Saban said of Milroe. “And that’s something he’s learned and is doing a lot better, staying much more positive on the sidelines, communicating well with his teammates and coaches in terms of what he saw, what he didn’t see, what he needs to do to get it corrected.

“So that’s something that comes a little bit with experience. But I also think it comes with awareness, and I think we’re making good progress in both areas.”

Milroe has completed 67.6 percent of his passes for 1,159 yards, nine touchdowns and four interceptions.

Wideout Jermaine Burton had a big day against the Aggies. He made a career-best nine receptions, matched his career high of 197 yards and caught two touchdown passes.

The Crimson Tide (5-1, 3-0) moved into first place in the SEC West by beating Texas A&M. Now they will face Arkansas (2-4, 0-3), which has dropped four straight games and has allowed an average of 33.3 points during the skid.

Saban is doing all he can to make the Razorbacks sound like a dangerous opponent, even though Alabama has won the past 16 matchups. The Crimson Tide lead the series 25-8.

“Arkansas is really a good team,” Saban said. “They’ve had some really tough games, some really close losses. But they’ve scored a lot of points.

“KJ Jefferson is a really good, big-time quarterback — big guy, hard to sack, can run, very talented arm.”

Jefferson has completed 67.1 percent of his passes for 1,300 yards, 12 touchdowns and six interceptions. In last Saturday’s 27-20 loss at Ole Miss, he passed for 250 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions.

“He’s just like everybody else on the team,” Razorbacks coach Sam Pittman said. “He’s got to continue to get better as well. I know he played extremely hard.”

Jefferson said his club needs to regroup entering the clash with Alabama.

“Just having faith in each other,” he said. “I mean just each and every day at practice and in the locker room as well, just make sure we’re still bonded together, we’re still having fun, we’re still in the moment and we’re still passionate about the team and this sport and the state.”

Jefferson has been sacked 12 times over the past two games, so Alabama defensive stalwarts Dallas Turner (6.5 sacks) and Chris Braswell (4.5) will look to pad their totals.

Texas A&M enters Arkansas clash with QB concerns

Texas A&M will travel in-state to Arlington to face Arkansas on Saturday in Southeastern Conference action, but the Aggies have a major concern.

On Monday, coach Jimbo Fisher listed starting signal-caller Conner Weigman as day-to-day, meaning that backup Max Johnson could run the offense when the neutral-site game kicks off in massive AT&T Stadium.

The son of Super Bowl-winning quarterback Brad Johnson, the left-handed Johnson relieved Weigman when the starter went down with an ankle sprain in the first half of last Saturday’s 27-10 conference-opening home victory over Auburn.

Fisher said he is more than comfortable having Johnson, who passed for 123 yards, leading the Aggies (3-1, 1-0) if Weigman cannot go Saturday.

“You have two guys, guys I’ve said from the beginning I’ve felt very confident with,” Fisher said. “(Johnson) came in and played excellent football and did a great job. He made plays and really led us through the game.”

Fisher added that receiver Noah Thomas, who has not played in the past six quarters, should be cleared to play, while safety Jardin Gilbert is out after having shoulder surgery.

In a rivalry that started in 1903 and was forged in the Southwest Conference, the two teams have found their way to the SEC and played as conference rivals every season since 2012.

While the Razorbacks (2-2, 0-1) lead the overall series 42-34-3, the Aggies have won 10 of the 11 meetings in their current conference alignment.

Arkansas is still trying to finish games in a winning fashion after consecutive one-score losses to Power 5 programs.

After wasting a 10-point lead and dropping a 38-31 home decision to BYU on Sept. 16, the Razorbacks bolted to a 13-3 lead but ultimately fell 34-31 last Saturday at then-No. 12 LSU.

Two losses by a total of 10 points and a rash of pre-snap penalties have led to frustration.

“It’s a series where the game is going to be close,” Arkansas coach Sam Pittman said. “In these close games, we’ve come up disappointed more times than not. We’ve got to play with the same amount of passion we had last week but with smarter pre-snap penalties on both sides of the ball.”

Saturday’s matchup will mark the first time since 2018 that both schools enter the game unranked.

Arkansas aims to establish ground game vs. BYU

Arkansas has scored 84 points in two games, but coach Sam Pittman insists the Razorbacks still have some work to do entering Saturday night’s home game against BYU in Fayetteville, Ark.

Specifically, they need to run the ball better.

Arkansas (2-0) is coming off a 28-6 win over visiting Kent State. But the Razorbacks produced only 57 rushing yards by halftime before finishing with 172.

When the closer-than-expected game finally appeared in hand, the fourth-year Razorbacks coach said it was time to focus on the ground game and getting better blocking up front the rest of the way.

“We tried several different things. We found some things that we can do and some things that we can’t do,” Pittman said. “How we can take the ball with the last six minutes and displace the line of scrimmage like we did, and not do it at the beginning? We’ve got to figure all that kind of stuff out.”

In recording a 56-13 win in their season opener against Western Carolina, the Razorbacks still managed only 105 yards on 36 carries for a 2.9-yard average.

Instead, third-year starting quarterback KJ Jefferson has thrown five touchdown passes with a 73.8 percent completion mark. He also has 59 yards rushing and a touchdown.

It won’t be BYU’s first in-person look at Jefferson. The Cougars (2-0) hosted Arkansas last October, and he torched them for 367 yards and five touchdowns in the Razorbacks’ 52-35 win.

“Tough team. Tough talent, just like we saw last year,” BYU coach Kalani Sitake said. “It doesn’t hurt that they have a veteran quarterback returning that’s big and strong, can run and can throw.”

Sitake downplayed a revenge factor, saying it “can only take you so far. The key for us to keep things more simple than that. The fans probably weren’t happy about that game, obviously. For our players, this is a whole separate deal, and I think that’s the way we’ve got to keep it.”

Cougars quarterback Kedon Slovis, a transfer from Pitt, has thrown for 493 yards and four scores. All four touchdowns came last week in BYU’s 41-16 rout of visiting Southern Utah in Provo.

Arkansas knocks off Kent State

KJ Jefferson threw two touchdown passes to Andrew Armstrong and Arkansas used tough defense to stymie visiting Kent State 28-6 on Saturday in Fayetteville, Ark.

Jefferson completed 13 of 19 passes for 136 yards and added 48 rushing yards. AJ Green ran 15 times for 82 yards to help the Razorbacks start the season 2-0.

Arkansas held Kent State (0-2) to 200 total yards, including just 26 rushing yards, and kept the Golden Flashes out of the end zone. Kent State quarterback Michael Alaimo went 11-for-17 passing for 174 yards and an interception returned for a touchdown.

Jaylen Thomas racked up 12 tackles for Arkansas. He and Trajan Jeffcoat each recorded 1.5 sacks.

Kent State opened the scoring with Andrew Glass’ 48-yard field goal at the end of an 11-play, 51-yard drive. But late in the first quarter, Arkansas linebacker Antonio Grier jumped to intercept Alaimo’s throw and returned it 25 yards for a touchdown.

The Golden Flashes embarked on another time-consuming drive and Glass converted from 38 yards away to trim it to 7-6.

On Arkansas’ next drive, Isaac TeSlaa dove between two defenders for a 36-yard grab. Three plays later, Jefferson fumbled the snap, picked the ball off the turf, rolled right and hit a wide-open Armstrong for a 5-yard score with 2:20 before halftime.

The Razorbacks traveled 91 yards and 73 yards on consecutive scoring drives in the second half. Rashod Dubinion ran in from a yard away to cap the first drive, making it 21-6 Arkansas with 5:50 left in the third period.

Early in the fourth, Jefferson tried to connect with TeSlaa down the right sideline for a score, and Kent State committed pass interference to give Arkansas 14 yards and a new set of downs. Two plays later, Jefferson rolled left and hit Armstrong in stride on the left side of the end zone for a 9-yard score.

Trell Harris’ 36-yard catch falling down set Kent State up at the Arkansas 2, but the Razorbacks’ goal-line defense stood firm for four downs. Jeffcoat and Landon Jackson wrapped up Gavin Garcia for a 4-yard loss on fourth-and-goal with 6:05 left to cement the Arkansas win.

Harris led all receivers with 78 yards on four catches. TeSlaa had three receptions for 51 yards for Arkansas, and Armstrong had four for 21.

Arkansas not looking past Western Carolina in opener

Western Carolina, Arkansas’ opponent in Saturday’s season opener, is among a group of what Razorbacks coach Sam Pittman calls “non-logo schools.”

That isn’t meant to be a knock on the Catamounts or their Football Championship Subdivision brethren, especially considering Arkansas needed a fourth-quarter rally to defeat Missouri State last season.

Pittman has used recent history to remind players of the importance of not overlooking anyone. Sure, the Razorbacks boast a size advantage and an attack that returns quarterback KJ Jefferson and running back Raheim Sanders. But they can’t count on intimidating foes; it’s best to outwork them.

“We talk a lot about, ‘We’re not playing opponents, we’re trying to play our best ball,’” Pittman said. “We’ve got to get back to that physicality and playing our hearts out every week, whomever we play. … If we can do that, wins and losses will take care of themselves because I do think we have a talented team.”

An FCS program representing the Southern Conference, Western Carolina finished 6-5 last season compared to 7-6 for Arkansas, which defeated Kansas in a Liberty Bowl thriller.

The Catamounts visited Georgia Tech in their lone matchup against Power Five competition last season, losing 35-17 on Sept. 10. WCU excelled at moving the ball against most other opponents, however, gaining a program-best 5,339 total yards while passing for a school-record 30 touchdowns.

Quarterback Cole Gonzales, who appeared in eight games last season while making four starts, is primed to take the reins of the attack.

Western Carolina just hopes Gonzales and Co. aren’t frequently watching the Razorbacks’ tandem of Jackson and Sanders from the sideline.

“You can’t get any better than that,” Catamounts coach Kerwin Bell said.

“So they are going to be two keys for us — how can we slow them down, how can we keep them from creating huge plays on that side of the ball. We have got to get them on the ground. We have got to find ways to tackle them.”

Arkansas defeats Kansas in 3OT in Liberty Bowl thriller

KJ Jefferson accounted for 417 yards of total offense as Arkansas defeated Kansas 55-53 in triple overtime Wednesday night in the Liberty Bowl in Memphis, Tenn.

It was the highest-scoring Liberty Bowl in history.

Kansas quarterback Jalon Daniels threw for a Liberty Bowl-record 544 yards, with five touchdowns in defeat.

Jefferson had 287 yards passing and two touchdowns and rushed for 130 yards and two touchdowns for Arkansas (7-6).

Kansas scored the final 25 points of regulation to send the game to overtime.

Down 38-23, Kansas scored with 1:05 left and recovered the onside kick. Daniels hit Luke Grimm with a 21-yard touchdown, and then hit Lawrence Arnold for the 2-point conversion to tie it with 41 seconds left.

Daniels hit Jared Casey on fourth-and-goal from the 2-yard line to take the lead in overtime. Rashod Dubinion answered with a 6-yard touchdown run for the Hogs.

Jefferson scored on a 20-yard run in the second overtime and then converted the 2-point conversion on a pass to Jaedon Wilson.

Daniels scored on a 2-yard run to answer. Daniels was stopped short on the 2-point attempt, but targeting was called. Daniels hit Casey with a 1-yard pass on the second try.

Jefferson hit Dubinion for the 2-point try in the third overtime. Kansas failed to convert its try.

Kansas (6-7), in its first bowl game since 2008, was seeking its fifth win over a Power 5 opponent this season after tallying just five in the previous five seasons combined.

Arkansas stretched the lead to 38-13 in the third quarter on Dubinion’s 2-yard run. Dubinion finished with 112 yards rushing, giving Arkansas 394 for the game.

Kansas’ Ky Thomas answered with a 2-yard run late in the quarter. Owen Piepergerdes’ 36-yard field goal for Kansas made it a two-score game.

Both offenses were able to move the ball early, although turnovers hurt Kansas. Daniels, who threw only two interceptions in 175 attempts this season, had two by the first drive of the second quarter.

The Razorbacks continued to pile on, taking a 31-7 lead with 5:02 left in the first half.

Kansas got a much-needed touchdown in the final two minutes of the first half when Daniels found Mason Fairchild for a 24-yard touchdown.

The Razorbacks led 31-13 at halftime.

Raheim Sanders, Arkansas topple No. 14 Ole Miss

Raheim Sanders set career highs with 232 rushing yards and three touchdowns as the Arkansas Razorbacks became bowl-eligible Saturday night, downing No. 14 Ole Miss 42-27 in Fayetteville, Ark.

Sanders, who carried the ball 24 times, topped his previous high of 175 yards and two scores set on Oct. 15 in a 52-35 win over BYU.

After missing last week’s home loss against No. 7 LSU, quarterback KJ Jefferson returned and went 17 of 22 passing for 168 yards and three scores. Matt Landers caught two touchdown passes, and Ketron Jackson Jr. had the other.

Linebacker Drew Sanders had a fumble recovery and an interception for Arkansas (6-5, 3-4 Southeastern Conference).

For Ole Miss (8-3, 4-3), Jaxson Dart was 21-for-36 for 240 yards with a touchdown and an interception. Malik Heath had 140 yards and a score on nine receptions.

Running back Quinshon Judkins totaled a season-best 214 yards on 24 carries. That gave the true freshman 1,385 yards — a single-season program record.

Zach Evans had a career-high 207 yards on 17 carries. Ole Miss produced 703 yards of offense, including 463 on the ground.

With Jefferson back under center, the Razorbacks perked up on offense on their second possession and went 69 yards on seven plays before the junior hit Landers for an 8-yard score at 8:28 of the first quarter.

On its next possession, the Arkansas offense went 73 yards for a score. Jefferson lobbed a perfect pass that Landers caught over his shoulder for a 23-yard TD.

The Rebels’ offense came to life on the ensuing series, with Dart finding Heath for a 53-yard gain. Jonathan Cruz put the visitors on the board with two minutes left in the quarter by curling in a 45-yard field goal.

In the first minute of the second quarter, Jackson won a one-on-one battle and caught a 20-yard touchdown pass for a 21-3 lead. Cruz later drilled a 32-yard field goal.

Sanders, who had 153 yards rushing yards in the first half, scored twice inside the last 2:20 to put the home side ahead 35-6 at the break.

His 68-yard touchdown run in the third quarter eclipsed his career highs, while Judkins, Evans and Heath tallied for Ole Miss in the fourth for the final margin.
