Arkansas vs. Ole Miss

Arkansas vs. Ole Miss showed once again that Arkansas’ defense is one of the best in the country still. Arkansas got their second win of the season pushing them to a .500 record so far. 

Arkansas intercepted Ole Miss quarterback Matt Corral six times in an impressive defensive show from Arkansas. This isn’t anything new coming from Arkansas as they have shown this throughout their first four games of the season. 

Hudson Clark was a shining light on defense having 3 interceptions by himself. Jalen Catalon, Grant Morgan, Greg Brooks Jr. all tallied 1 interception a piece. Matt Corral did still have 2 touchdowns and 200 yards but still the 6 interceptions were enough to throw Ole Miss’s offense out of whack.

Arkansas offense was perhaps looking as good as it has been all season. Felipe Franks has 244 yards on 21 for 34 passing. He did have an interception but he did also throw one touchdown.

Rakeem Boyd, Trelon Smith, Treylon Burks, and Felipe Franks all had rushing attempts however Rakeem Boyd was the only of the four to have a touchdown. He only tallied 39 yards but the one touchdown made up for the lack of production yard wise. 

Treylon Burks, again, made up a bulk of the receiving yards having 137 yards on 11 catches. He tallied one touchdown as well and was the only receiver to catch a touchdown pass and was again the star of the show.

Arkansas defense had as many touchdowns as the offense did which just proves even more how great Arkansas defense is. Grant Morgan had a touchdown as well as Jalen Canton. Arkansas also had 11 tackles for loss and 2 sacks. Both of the defensive touchdowns were pick sixes from Grant Morgan and Jalen Canton. 

However Ole Miss rushing put on a clinic against the Arkansas defense. Ole Miss had 242 total rushing yards as a team. Jerrion Early had 112 yards and 1 touchdown. MoMo Sanogo had one rush for 47 yards which put him second on the team in rushing yards. 

Arkansas went up early in the first quarter with a Rakeem Boyd touchdown. Arkansas led 7-0 with the only score of the first quarter. 

Near the beginning of the second quarter Arkansas tacked on another score with a A.J. Reed field goal to put Arkansas up 10-0. On the following possession Jalen Canton had a 35 yard interception return for a touchdown to put Arkansas up 17-0. Then at the end of the second quarter A.J. Reed tacked on another field goal to put Arkansas up 20-0 to end the first half.

Coming into the second half the Ole Miss comeback started. Elijah Moore caught a touchdown pass from Matt Corral to cut the lead to 13. 

During the fourth quarter Jonathon Mingo scored on a 21 yard pass from Matt Corral to cut the lead to 14-20 early in the fourth. Then Arkansas caught their momentum back off of a Felipe Franks to Treylon Burks touchdown pass. Arkansas failed the two point conversion but was still up 26-14. 

Ole Miss on their next possession drove down the field in two minutes which led to a Jerrion Early rushing touchdown which cut the lead 21-26. However late in the fourth quarter Grant Morgan got his interception which he returned for a 23 yard touchdown. Which pushed the lead to 33-21. This was the final score of the game and Arkansas proved once again they aren’t anything to mess with as this pushed the Razorbacks to 2-2 and a solid position in their conference.
