    In what many thought would be a trap game for the Razorbacks, turned to be exactly that. After the Hogs went on the road last week to knock off #1 Alabama, the Hogs came home to the friendly faces and faced off against the #18 UCF Golden Knights. Arkansas seemed to be ready to play as they came out the gates blazing with 2 1st qtr TD passes and a INT return by CB Darius Winston....but that's where it stopped for the Hogs.

    In the 2nd and 3rd qtr the Hogs seemed to be in a daze and UCF took full advantage of it outscoring Arkansas 32-7 over the 2 quarter stretch. In that stretch UCF's McDuffie took a 97 yd KOR to the house, breaking about 8 tackles along the way. The UCF D-Line also decided to come to play after getting torched in the 1st. They recorded 8 sacks in the 2nd and 3rd qtr alone, which was also all they got all day.

    Going into the 4th the Hogs found themselves in a familiar spot....trailing going into the 4th. Arkansas closed the gap with a 26 yd FG with 5:23 left in the 4th to pull Arkansas within 4. After a quick 3 and out from both sides, UCF got the ball back looking to run out the clock but they didn't account for the will of the Arkansas D. On a 2nd and short, UCF tried to run a WR screen, only to have Jr. CB Greg Gatson step in front of it and race 53 yards to the house to give Arkansas the lead for good.

    UCF got the ball back and drove the length of the field, and it looked like they would win until Sr. LB Jerry Franklin picked off a pass intended for the TE across the middle. UCF with all 3 timeouts to burn bowed up and tried to get the ball back from Arkansas. With a little good ol CPU F'N, Arkansas fumbled on 1st and 2nd down, but luckily got the ball back both times. Coach Stone decided that they wouldn't give the CPU a chance to F them again so he went with a PA pass and found a wide open Chris Childs. Childs raced 83 yards, zig zagged along the way until the time ran out and gave Arkansas a 10 pt win.
