Whaley & Arkansas Open Season with a Win

Riding the backs of some key passes by Austin Allen and strong running by Rawleigh Williams in the fourth quarter, Devwah Whaley and his Arkansas Razorbacks teammates were able to put together a 77-yard game-winning drive to defeat Louisiana Tech 21 - 20 at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium.

Whaley had two rushes in the 2nd Quarter, his first one gaining 3 yards, with his second carry he got caught in the back field for a loss of 2 yards.

Down six early in the fourth quarter, the Hogs offense was able to take over at their own 28-yard line after the Bulldogs missed what would have been their third field goal of the second half.

Play after play, Arkansas chipped away at the field position using a steady dose of Rawleigh Williams from the backfield and Keon Hatcher from out wide. On the winning drive alone, Williams carried the ball eight times for 32 yards, while Hatcher made two big catches, each earning the first down, while he was able to break some tackles in the process.

Tight end Jeremy Sprinkle finished off the drive with a 4-yard touchdown catch from Allen on fourth down, his fifth touchdown catch in his last four games dating back to last season.

Williams finished the game with 95 yards on the ground, his second-highest total in a game in his career. His 22 carries was a new career-high and he had one touchdown earlier in the game.

Quarterback Austin Allen finished the game 20-of-29 passing for 191 yards and two touchdowns. Hatcher led all receivers with 86 yards receiving on six catches. Along with Sprinkle, Jared Cornelius had a touchdown catch, his fifth touchdown catch in his last six games.
