Arkansas gets boost from ground game
Sunday, October 9, 2011
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) -- Arkansas quarterback Tyler Wilson received plenty of support in the Razorbacks' 38-14 win over Auburn on Saturday night.
Wilson threw for 262 yards and accounted for three touchdowns, completing 19 straight passes at one point.
However, Joe Adams' 92-yard touchdown run in the second half provided a much-needed boost to a struggling Razorbacks (5-1, 1-1 Southeastern Conference) run game.
No. 10 Arkansas finished with 196 yards rushing in the win, something it hopes to carry over as it heads into a bye week before beginning the second half of the season at Mississippi on Oct. 22.
The Tigers, meanwhile, exited their first SEC loss of the season with growing questions at quarterback.
Senior Barrett Trotter threw for just 81 yards in the loss for No. 24 Auburn (4-2, 2-1), which put freshman Kiehl Frazier on the field more and more as the game moved on.
