Arkansas’ defense keeps Tennessee off the scoreboard for the entire second half and they come away with a 24-13 win Saturday night at Razorback Stadium,

The win runs the Razorbacks’ record to 3-3 on the year.

3Q :07: Arkansas had another good drive going before it stalled and A.J. Reed atoned for his miss on an early 21-yard field goal to drive a 48-yarder through the uprights and the Razorbacks go up two scores. Hogs 24, Vols 13

3Q 4:13: Treylon Burks decided to get in on the fun Mike Woods was having and Feleipe Franks found him open on a deep crossing route that seemed to take forever. Burks hauled it in and went down the left sideline for a 59-yard scoring play and the Hogs add to the lead in just two plays after another three-and-out stop by the defense as Tennessee has changed quarterbacks. Hogs 21, Vols 13

3Q 6:35: Arkansas’ defense got off the field and Mike Woods burned mouthy Vols corner Kenneth George, Jr., for the second straight drive on a 56-yard completion (and George was flagged for interference on the play). That set up a 6-yard scoring strike from Franks to tight end Blake Kern for his first career touchdown and the Hogs grab the lead. Hogs 14, Vols 13

3Q 9:46: The Hogs show they can eat up the clock, too, going 75 yards in 17 plays taking up 5:14 and Feleipe Franks found Mike Woods on a quick slant against Vols corner Kenneth George, Jr., who had been yapping at Woods on a few plays during the drive. Woods had the last word on that one. Vols 13, Hogs 7

HALFTIME: Arkansas’ offense has been stymied by the Tennessee offense when it counted. The best the Razorbacks could muster was a missed 21-yard field goal attempt by A.J. Reed and he pushed it to the right. Halftime adjustments will be interesting. Vols 13, Hogs 0

2Q 1:57: The Vols drive 49 yards in eight plays before having to settle for a 48-yard field goal by Brent Cimaglia. Vols 13, Hogs 0

2Q 8:51: After Arkansas’ offense finally manages to put together a 71-yard, 16-play drive, Feleipe Franks throws away passes on second and third downs, then A.J. Reed pushes a 21-yard field goal attempt wide to the right and a scoring chances is squandered. Vols 10, Hogs 0

2Q 13:35: Tennessee is going to make this a short game if the Hogs’ defense can’t figure out a way to get the offense stopped. They drive 81 yards in 16 plays, using 8:29 of the clock and Eric Gray scores from a yard out and the Hogs will be getting the ball for just the second time in the game. Vols 10, Hogs 0

END 1Q: Hogs’ defense not able to get off field on third down in the third quarter with the offense having just one possession. This looks like the Vols’ offense in the glory days running the ball (96 yards) and passing when necessary, dominating time of possession, 12:39 to 2:21. Tennessee driving, facing first down at the Hogs’ 14. Vols 3, Hogs 0

1Q 9:25: Tennessee gets on the board first as the Hogs’ defense gave up 52 yards on the opening drive of the game in 12 plays. The Vols ate up the first 5:35 of the game before a holding penalty halted them, but Brent Cimaglia kicked a 50-yard field goal for the early lead. Vols 3, Hogs 0

Arkansas and Tennessee, both 2-3 on the season, are under way in Fayetteville with the Vols getting the ball first against the Hogs’ defense.
