Devwah Whaley’s Arkansas sophomore running back teammate Rawleigh Williams had a career performance in Davis-Wade Stadium, rushing for 205 yards and four touchdowns and passing for a touchdown to lead the Razorbacks to a 58-42 win over Mississippi State for its seventh win of the year.
Williams’ performance will go down as one of the best under current head coach Bret Bielema as he is the first Razorback player to rush for three or more touchdowns and pass for one touchdown since Darren McFadden against LSU in 2007.
Williams yards on the ground and rushing touchdowns were easily new career-highs, while his passing touchdown in the third quarter to Austin Cantrell was his first of his career.
Keon Hatcher and freshman running back Whaley provided the final Razorback touchdowns in the game. Hatcher caught his second touchdown of the game early in the fourth quarter to keep the Hogs in front by three scores. It was Hatcher’s second game this season with two touchdowns and fourth of 60 yards or more.
For Whaley, he now has two touchdowns this season and finished with 112 yards against the Bulldogs, his second highest total and second 100-yard game this year.
